“Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
Since the start of the pandemic, each week we have published on YouTube a contemplative evening prayer service with music in the style of Taizé, and these videos are available at any time to watch. 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, praying, and moments of silence. 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.

The evening contemplative service with music inspired by Taizé worship are held on the first and third Sunday evenings of each month in the sanctuary.
Coming Up: Please join us for our next in-person contemplative service on Sunday, January 15th, at 5:00 pm!
This contemplative service with music in the style of Taizé worship is offered on the first and third Sunday of every month in the nave of our church building. It features singing, silence, candle lighting, and communion. Even if you typically attend a morning service, we encourage you to attend this special bi-monthly service and join us as we expand our Sunday worship experience!
