Taste of Taizé in Ewell

Taizé service at St Clements
St. Clement’s recently hosted a beautiful ecumenical Taizé service which was attended by members of six of the Churches Together in Ewell.

With the emphasis on love, peace and forgiveness, there were reflections taken from the last writings of Brother Roger of Taizé, interspersed with some of the lovely, gentle Taizé chants. There were periods of silence, recognising that in silence God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts. 

The final prayer, written by Brother Roger, was a reminder of God’s absolute love for us and that without love for, and trust in, God we would be nothing: Spirit of God, Spirit of compassion, Spirit of praise, Your love for each of us will never disappear. Alleluia!
