I was recently at a Taize like service and loved the 'blurb' that served by way of an introduction for those who had not been to Taize. I'm recording it here (mainly so I can find it again):
.... to this service of prayer.
If this is your first experience of the Taizé style of prayer, here are a few pointers which may be helpful:
Singing - There is a lot of this! It is 'a singing which goes on and on and continues afterwards in the silence of our hearts'. It reminds us that the worship of heaven has no beginning or end and it is this with which we join. Feel free to drop in and out of the singing as you wish.
Languages - There are a lot of these too! The worship of Taizé arises out of a truly international community and reminds us that we belong to a worldwide family. Because the songs are simple and repeated, you should hopefully soon pick them up.
Silence - There's a fair bit of this as well. The simplicity of the worship is intended to lead us to a place of stillness in the presence of God. For this reason, a period of silence is at the heart of all Taizé prayer. During the silence, you may wish to focus on the candles or images around, or to close your eyes. Don't worry about what you should be praying about, enjoy the space and the chance to be open to God.
We hope this service will be a blessing to you.
