 After the success of our trip last year, we're so   excited to be heading back to Taizé in October 2023! 

The 2023 trip to the Taizé Community in France is an amazing opportunity for young people aged 15+. It's a week-long residential trip from Saturday 21 October until Sunday 29 October 2023 (half-term). 

Taizé in France is an extraordinary place – quite different from anywhere else: it combines a monastic community with the feel of a huge youth camp! It is a place that celebrates diversity in many aspects and welcomes those who are Anglican, Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, believers of other religions, and those of no faith whatsoever. Taizé is a place for searching, listening and thinking about what it means to be a human being, and how we can bring justice, peace and hope to our world.

This is no ordinary youth camp! Each day we will: gather 3 times a day as one community in the church for prayer with songs, scripture and silence; we'll take part in a workshop with one of the brothers, followed by discussion in small groups; we'll volunteer to help around the community; between meals there's free time for fun, games and even down time; in the evenings, many head to 'Oyak' where over drinks & snacks, there is singing, games and all kinds of spontaneous entertainment.

Through the Youth Ministry in Communion project we are able to offer this trip at a severely reduced cost of £250 per young person. Bursaries are available for young people who are a part of one of our network parishes - alternatively, speak to your youth leader or vicar who might be able to offer financial support.

Not yet sold? Taizé is like no other place. Whilst gathering for worship 3 times a day might sound like a lot - worship at Taizé is very different to what we're used to: simple but moving. Don't just take our word for it though, here's what two participants from last year said...

It was an amazing experience meeting many people from around the world

I found the silence special and deeply moving
