Worship – An Ecumenical Evening Service In Barnstead
Congregational Church of North Barnstead (CCNB) and the North Barnstead
Women’s Fellowship invite you to attend a Taize Worship Service on
Sunday, May 5th, at 5 p.m.
Worship is an informal service with lots of quiet meditation time and
beautiful music to help you enter into the presence of God. There will
be Scripture readings, prayers and the sacred silence and chants. The
chants are short, containing words from the Psalms or other Scripture.
Sung communally and repetitively, they become a unifying prayer and
contribute to inner stillness.
worship began 72 years ago in the small French village of Taize. It has
been spread world-wide by people seeking to promote reconciliation and
peace and justice in the places they live and work. Taize, France draws
over 100,000 people each year, many between the ages of 17 and 40.
peaceful service offers a time of worship for those looking for a quiet
meditative time as well as those not available on Sunday mornings. CCNB
is located at 504 North Barnstead Road, just above Peacham Road. Come
join us. All are welcome!
