Meditation and Prayer in the Style of Taizé at Trinity Newtown.
On Wednesday, April 25th there will be a service of Taizé at 7:15 pm in Trinity Church.
This tradition of musical worship began years ago in the ecumenical French monastic community called Taizé. Held at Trinity Episcopal Church in the darkened, richly resonant space, our Taizé services provide an uncomplicated framework for quiet meditation, reflection, readings and music.
There is no Eucharist or sermon during a Taizé service - the experience has the opportunity of deepening our faith through the power of prayer. All are encouraged to participate as the Spirit moves them, whether that be in song, prayer, or quiet meditation.
A talented volunteer Taizé Choir and instrumentalists of the Taizé Ensemble are led by Minister of Music Fiona Smith Sutherland in the beautiful, candlelit nave of Trinity Church.
Trinity is located at the flagpole, 36 Main Street in Newtown. For more information about this service or the other musical offerings at Trinity or if you’d like to join the choir or ensemble for this service, please contact Ms. Smith Sutherland at 203-426-9070 x.11 or www.TrinityNewtownCT.org
