"Prayer, Song, Silence, Contemplation" Come calm your mind and soothe your soul. This contemplative style of worship draws us deeper within ourselves and draws us closer to God as we meditate and contemplate the word and works of God. All are welcome.

Taize is a form of contemplative worship that incorporates mystical practices and inner spiritual beliefs as described: "Short chants, repeated again and again, give it a meditative character," the brothers explain in a brief introduction printed in the paperback songbook. "Using just a few words, [the chants] express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being."

Taize Worshipers: Practising the silence with icons, candles, incense and prayer stations, this very contemplative community is attracting young people from around the world.

On the Second Sunday each month.
