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.
St. Andrew’s offers a Contemplative Evening Prayer service with music in the style of Taizé on Sunday evenings at 6pm. This is a welcoming service open to anyone who would like to experience this beautiful style of worship. Taizé service includes singing, scripture reading, a short reflection on the scripture, and silent time for meditative prayer. More info: http://www.saintandrewsseattle.org
