Taizé Service

The Taizé service will resume in February 2022


Taizé songs and prayers are sung around the world.

The Taizé community was founded in Taizé in France in 1940 during the Second World War.   It is an ecumenical Christian community and each year thousands of young people make an annual pilgrimage there.

Come and experience the peace of a Taizé Service at Leura Uniting Church. Those providing and those receiving worship come from a variety of churches and faith and spiritual traditions.

There is an opportunity to offer prayer on behalf of others.

All are welcome at this special meditative time of gathering together for singing, prayer and silence in the Taizé tradition.

Taizé services are normally on the the third Sunday of the month, 5pm-6pm

Dear friends and members of the Taize community,

As we approach the season of Advent we hope that after a long couple of years, your spirits may begin to be uplifted. We are delighted to let you know we will return to face-to-face Taize services on Sunday 20th February 2022 at our usual time of 5 – 6pm.
Meanwhile although we cannot meet face-to-face this coming Sunday 21st November, in the hope of uplifting your spirits, we suggest you may like to meditate on, and then perhaps sing along to the words of Taize Song No 18, Raise a Song of Gladness:
There is a lovely version on YouTube. You can look it up – “Jubilate, servite” – Taize. It is the second version down. (The first version has the English words).
As we face the ongoing suffering of people and of  our world and earth, we hope you may find ways of restoring and nourishing your hope and spirit.
Grace and peace for this fast approaching Advent season,
Carolyn Craig-Emilsen and Rev Myung Hwa Park, Lyn Phillips, Denise Cameron, Annie Cox, Merril Hillis and Margaret Neville from the Leura Uniting Church Taize Worship Team.

Next planned service date is:

Sunday 20th February 2022 from 5 – 6pm.
All are welcome at the Taize service of contemplation, music and prayer.
COVID-19 Safe practices will be in place including recording names and contact details on entry.
