TAIZE PRAYER – What is it ?
Taizé Prayer is through meditative singing interspersed with readings, prayer and silence.
Don’t worry there are no demands made on you, there are no speaking parts for you and you don’t HAVE to sing – We use recordings of Taizé chants – you can hum along if you want to or you can just sit, relax and listen.
Singing is one of the essential elements of worship – Taizé music is formed of short songs repeated over and over, songs quickly grasped by the mind and penetrating the whole being.
It becomes a way of focusing the mind, listening to God and allows everyone to take part. The songs can also continue in your heart and mind long after the prayer meeting has ended.
If you are looking for an Oasis of quiet and calm following a busy day or just to be you, why not try joining us for half an hour on the first Tuesday in the Month at 7:00 pm in the Lady Chapel - May through to November.
You won’t know if it works for you until you try it!!
