Taizé services are meditative services centered around singing, scripture, and prayers. Our Taizé worship at Nacoochee Presbyterian begins with a harp prelude offered by Mary Raymer beginning at 5:30 pm. The music Mary provides offers us a chance to let go of our preoccupations and to turn our focus solely to worship and prayer. The service itself begins at 6:00 pm.
The Taizé community was officially founded by Brother Roger on Easter Day of 1949 in the village of Taizé, France. It has grown to become an ecumenical community of over 100 brothers. Our services at NPC are based on the services held at Taizé. Almost all the music we use has been written within this monastic community and consists of scripture-based songs that are sung by the congregation. The service also contains a period of silence as well as a time for offering prayers at the Table.
There are three more services planned for this season:
Wednesdays March 16th, April 20th, and May 18th.
We’ll then break for the summer.
All are welcome to this service; dress is casual.
Masks are available at the door and are required while inside the church.
The service will also be live streamed on the church’s YouTube page.
