Come and find out more about Taizé
A joint Anglican and Methodist Event
Thursday 16th November at 19h30
Hasland Methodist Church
followed by refreshments at our home.

Some of you will have already read in the August and September editions of The Lichgate, the St. Paul’s Hasland magazine, about how God is working throughout the world through the prayer and music of the Taizé Community .  Now is your chance to find out more. Why not come along to Hasland Methodist Church on Thursday 16th November at 19h30 to hear John-Charles and John  from St Paul’s talk about meeting Brother Roger at Taizé, their experience of leading Taizé worship groups and then watch a 50-minute DVD “Praying with the songs of Taizé”?  In this film, Brother Roger’s words, views of community prayer and testimonies of young adults from across the world take us to the heart of the mystery of prayer in a discovery of songs of Taizé, from their beginning until today.

You are most welcome to join us at home in Kent Street afterwards for refreshments and fellowship but please sign the list at the back of the Church so that we have an idea of numbers.
For more information, feel free to contact me:
So put it in your diary now !  Thursday 16th November at 19h30 at Hasland Methodist Church.  We look forward to seeing you.

John-Charles Tanner and John Rivers
