The focus at the Taizé Community in France, is gathering together three times each day for prayer. As people from differing Christian backgrounds and countries are drawn there, they find that the shared experience of singing together in harmony in a prayerful way brings wholeness and unity. It touches something within the individual at a profound level.
Although unable to entirely re-create the atmosphere and surroundings at Taizé, course leader Marion wishes to share some of her experience of staying there by following a similar daily programme at this Purley weekend.
The sung chants are deliberately simple and easy to learn, and those coming can choose to sing either the melody or a harmonising part, or alternate between them.
Who is it for?
No previous experience of singing Taizé chants is required, just a love of music, in particular the human voice, for connecting with God and others.
What will we be doing?
Gathering for Taizé style worship morning, noon and evening.
There will be time and space for Bible focus with personal and group reflection and opportunities for singing practice, walking in the beautiful countryside, circle dancing or resting.
Cost: £128 en-suite & £108 standard including all meals.
Please note booking for this event closes on 1st November which is one week before the event date.
