Taizé worship is being incorporated in a wide variety of churches, Protestant and Catholic, and its pattern of devotion is emulated in other monastic communities around the world.
A Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. The style of prayer practiced at Taizé has attracted many worshipers from around the globe and from many different denominations. The prayers consist of “short chants, repeated again and again,” according to an introduction in a Taizé songbook. “The words are sung over many times.”
We gather in the early evening in the sanctuary for a simple service of chanting, Bible readings and prayer. The worship space is darkened, candles illuminate the sanctuary, participants gather around the altar.
Taize services are held September through May on the first Monday of each month, Fall/Winter services begin at 7:00 and Spring at 8:00.
For more information the service, contact John King Carter, Organ/Choir Master or the church office at (770) 893-4525.
