Monthly Taize Worship
PHPC holds Taizé worship the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 p.m. -7:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

What is Taizé Worship?
"Taizé worship" refers to a particular form of worship practiced by the Taizé Community, an ecumenical Christian community in Taizé, France. The community was formed in the 1940s by a man named Brother Roger, and it originally existed to meet the needs of World War II refugees. Over time, the Taizé community has become internationally known as a place of pilgrimage and peace by people of faith from around the world.

Taizé offers a contemplative approach to worship through easy-to-sing music, scripture readings, spoken prayers, silence, and candlelight to enhance the peaceful setting.

Taizé worship has no sermon, no announcements, and no verbal explanation of the worship elements. This style of worship asks participants to stop, pray with song and silence, and listen to the "still, small voice" within.

Now, as you leave this place,
May the living Lord go with you.
May he go behind you, to encourage you;
Beside you, to befriend you in obedient ministry;
Above you, to watch over you;
Beneath you, to lift you from your sorrows;
Within you, to give you the gifts of faith
     and hope and love;
And always before you, to show you the way. Amen.
