Taizé, located in the countryside of France, is a place to search for communion with God through community prayer, song, silence, personal reflection and sharing. Born after World War II, Taize has become a haven for seekers looking to step back from daily life, to meet a wide variety of people and consider one’s commitment in the Church and in society.
If you are interested, come along to the Taizé taster evening that's being held on the 21 January 2024 in Bath, St Michael's Without. The aim of the evening is to help young adults find out more about what happens at Taizé and information about the Young Adult pilgrimage.
The average day consists of gathering three times a day for prayer using the familiar chants from Taizé that many will know, and a work duty, either preparing and serving food, cleaning, gardening, or any other task necessary for the life of the community for that week.

The Diocese of Bath and Wells are planning to organize a pilgrimage to the Taizé Community in France. Following a successful trip earlier this year, the diocese, led by Bishop Michael, intends to take a group from the 13th to the 21st of July next year. The focus is on providing participants, particularly those under 30, with an opportunity for a straightforward and impactful encounter with spirituality.
