As well as the usual program for the meetings in Taizé, there will be workshops and gatherings relating to mutual understanding between Christians and Muslims.

- Who can come? ↓

- Christian and Muslim prayers ↓

For the prayers of the Muslims, a permanent room will be available.

All are invited to the prayer of the brothers of the Taizé Community. The prayer is essentially made up of meditative songs, most of which are biblical verses. Everyone can feel free to sing or not. Christians can also attend the prayer of the Muslims. A respectful way do to this is to be present at the back of the room, without participating in the bodily gestures of the prayer

NB : From some countries, there are bus shuttles that bring people to Taizé and take them home on Sundays. If it is easier for you to take one of these shuttles, you can sign up for the week, participate at the beginning of the week in the usual weekly programme at Taizé, then on Friday change to the programme of the special weekend.

Looking forward to welcoming you soon! Ahla wa sahla!
