Once a month, on the first Friday, we meet for a Taizé Prayer at Elsie Briggs House, Church Road, Westbury on Trym. The peaceful setting of the prayer room is perfect for the reflective, contemplative style of the prayer. Like in Taizé we use simple chants that are repeated several times, if possible sung in different voices. These chants are interspersed with readings, prayers and a longer time of silence. It is a wonderful way to connect with the Light within.
We are pleased to welcome people frommany different Christian backgrounds to this meeting, reflecting the international and inter-denominational ethos of the Taizé Community. If you are not able to come on a Friday, don’t worry, there are more meetings in Bristol. To find out more, visit Taizé Bristol, which connects Taizé groups around the Bristol area.
The Taizé worship style originates from the Taizé Christian community in southern Burgundy, France which has its origins during World War 2 as a place of shelter for those in need. It’s vision is to bring people from all over the world together in God’s love. Find out more about the Taizé community.
