Taizé

What do you know about Taizé, an ecumenical community of brothers in France? You will probably have heard and sung Taizé chants at Mass and during our Taizé services, but did you know that thousands of people every year, especially young people, spend a week in the community sharing prayer, music, discussion and life together.

 

From the beginning, the community has been inspired by two aims: to live in communion with God through prayer and to be a leaven of peace and trust in the midst of the human family. A stay at Taizé is an opportunity to seek communion with God in prayer, singing, silence and reflection. It can be possible to discover an inner peace, a meaning to life and a new impetus.

 

While people of all ages spend time at Taizé young people have pre-dominance and school/university holiday times are usually reserved for the young.

 

There is even a coach service from London Victoria to Taizé during the summer months so it couldn’t be easier!

 

If you are a young person (and even if not so young) please spend a little time to explore the Taizé link and the short film, so you can see and hear about the experiences of other young people at Taizé.
