For those looking to learn more about the ecumenical Community of Taize in France, whether you're part of the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer or not, please join us for this workshop.

Taize is famous for its contemplative music and meditative style of worship, but they also do reconciliation work around the world, and have a deep-seated commitment to the poor.  This is an opportunity to learn more about Taize, lead Taize-style prayer (and sing in different languages), or consider possibly travelling to Taize one day.  The day will be a mix of worship, song, practice, Bible study and informative sessions dotted with real-life stories from someone who has spent a lot of time at Taize.

Workshop leader is the Rev. Clara King, Incumbent of St. George Anglican Church in NE Calgary.  She first went to Taize almost by accident in 2005 at the age of 24.  Not knowing what she was walking into, the experience of the Taize community and singing with 8,000 people that week changed her life.  Since then, she has been to Taize 9 times, lived there as a Permanent for 4 months, and travelled with Taize to Nairobi, Kenya and the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  

The workshop includes lunch.  A fee of $20 is asked to cover the cost.  Click here to register.
