Reflection week for 18-35 year-olds

Next year’s dates for the 18-35s week:
Sunday 25 August - Sunday 1 September 2019

A week of reflection reserved for 18-35 year-olds was held in Taizé In Taizé, 19 - 26 August 2018. Because of the special programme for this week, we asked 15-17 year-olds, adults over 35 and families with children to come at another time.

The aim of the week is to allow young adults of the same age-range to meet and discuss their future seen in the light of faith.

At the end of morning prayer, the day will start with a bible reflection for everyone in the church. The programme will include workshops and forums in which young people from different continents, people involved in international organisations, Christian communities and local initiatives of solidarity will participate. There will also be small sharing groups.
