Regular Events

This page lists the regular Taizé events in the Bristol area.

Monthly

Many Taizé events are held once a month. The week of the month listed here refers to the occurrence of the actual day the event is held. So for example, if the 1st of the month falls on a Thursday, then the first Friday will be the 2nd of the month.

It is not related to the first whole week or the week of the first Sunday or anything else.

    hello, i attend the redcliff taize prayer and am starting up a prayer in my own church but we want to be in direct connection with other groups so that we may share and pray together, and was wondering for that sake of being similar if we could use the template for the music and order of service booklet that they use in redcliff, then we can modifiy it for the the church.

    this would be a great help

    best wishes

    St Bernadette’s Parish in Whitchurch is hosting an evening of Taize prayer, reflection and song around the cross at the beginning of Holy Week on Monday 2 April beginning at 7.30pm. St Bernadette’s has plenty of parking and is easy to find on the A37. All are most welcome and it would be great to see as many as can be here on the 2nd.

    This is an exciting ‘first’ for us and we are hoping that a little group could be formed so as to become a more regular event inthe prayerlife of our parish and our local community.

    Do come along

    Dear friends,
    This is great-thanks for doing it. There are a few changes, which it would be very helpful if you could update. Thanks!

    1) St James’ Priory Taize prayer is no longer on the 1st Wednesday of the month, but now is on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7.30pm.

    2) St Nick’s Taize prayer is as before but starts at 7.15pm

    3) There is no longer a Taize vigil at Holy Cross bedminster.

    Thanks!
    love Caroline

    Hi Fran,
    Since Heather left Bristol I’ve been running the Saint Mary Redcliffe service. This has now finished. If you could remove it from the list please.

    Also could you add the following service to the list:
    1. Leigh Woods / Abbots Leigh (http://www.theparishchurch.com/Church_Website/Church_Services.html)
    This is the fourth Sunday of the month at 6:30pm and has been running now for almost 2 years.

    Thanks

    Chris
