“Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”

St. Andrew’s offers a Contemplative Evening Prayer service with music in the style of Taizé on Sunday evenings at 6pm. Since the start of the pandemic, these are now published on YouTube each week and available at any time. This contemplative liturgy is inspired by the worship of the eponymous, ecumenical monastic fraternity in Taizé, France. Our liturgy at St. Andrew’s includes singing, silence, and communion. Meditative repetition of simple Taizé-inspired chant-like songs helps us to breathe deeply and relax. Our dedicated music team has consists of guitar, autoharp, and hand percussion as well as singers. The music team always welcomes new members. The atmosphere is conducive to prayer in many forms. All are welcome at this peace-filled and restful service.
