Taizé Evening Prayer 6.30pm Sunday 19th Feb

The music of Taizé has transformed the worship of the church across the world and has especially resonated with younger people who often find church alienating and inaccessible. With simple readings, prayers and a time of silence, the time of worship is shaped by the beautiful chants of Brother Jaques Bertier – repeated simple tunes and phrases, often with improvised accompaniment from instruments, or a solo verse sung above

This is the first Taizé service we have held at St Andrew’s and we warmly welcome you to join for this hour of meditative worship.

If you play an instrument, please bring it along. There is a rehearsal for singers and instruments from 5.30 pm, but you are are also welcome simply to come for the service at 6.30 pm.

Amongst the chants we will be using are “Confitemini Domino”, “Ubi Caritas” “Da Pacem”, “Nunc Dimitis” and “Laudate Omnes Gentes”
