All Saints hosts Taizé services

Starting this Friday 12 February, All Saints is hosting weekly Taizé services as part of their Lenten journey.

Taizé is an inter-faith form of contemplative prayer and worship. It takes its names from the small village of Taizé in Burgundy, France, now an important site of pilgrimage for Christians.

The village of Taizé is the home of an ecumenical monastic community which places its focus on living in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation. Music is an integral part of the Taizé tradition and local Celtic harpist Judy Henry will accompany our services.

"We're delighted to be able to have such local talent working with us as we make a Lenten Journey together," said Rector Elizabeth Northcott. "We hope people of all faiths will join us for this time of peace and making space to hear God's word in their lives."

All Saints Taizé services will start at 7 p.m. every Friday until March 18.
