What can I expect at a Taizé Service?
Taizé prayer service is held every Sunday evening in the sanctuary at St. Andrew’s, where candles are lit and the pace slows down. The Taizé service is attended by adults of all ages from within and outside the St. Andrew’s community. People who attend Taizé are drawn to listen to God speaking to them through silence, scripture reading and short reflection, communion and healing prayer. However, Taizé singing is perhaps the essential element of the service. The simple, meditative songs are repeated several times as they begin to sing themselves and become a part of the worshiper’s soul. The Taizé service offers a spiritual experience that many finding missing in their personal lives or in their traditional worship services. And perhaps most of all, people feel a welcoming presence in this local Taizé community, as well as a deep connection that brings them together as a people of God.
