Since 1940 the village of Taizeì, in the hills of Burgundy, France, has been home to an ecumenical community of brothers whose prayer is at the centre of their life. The rich, simple and beautiful songs and prayers of Taizeì are now used by Christians throughout the world.
St. Andrew's is one of seven churches in Barrie that participates in a monthly Taize Prayer service. Anyone is welcome to come and experience this beautiful form of prayer that involves singing, silence and peace.
Quiet prayer and meditation can help people overwhelmed by the complexities of life to reconnect to their faith in God. Taize offers a peaceful philosophy that is worth investigating. For information on Taize Prayer please contact the church office.
