European Meeting in Taizé and online

Local initiatives

In different countries, small or larger groups are preparing to participate together via the internet in the programme of the European meeting. Circumstances vary greatly from place to place. Some plan to meet in a church or parish centre; others plan to meet as a group of friends, neighbours or flatmates. Some will follow the programme from morning to evening for five days; others will meet in the evenings or just for one day.

The volunteers currently at Taizé will be happy to be in contact with anyone who is planning something during these days. This contact also helps us to understand even better what proposals will be useful for you locally at the end of the year and how we can help you with the preparation. To get in touch with us, please register using this form.

Some groups are finding it useful to publish their contact information so that others in the same place can join them. Here is a list by country that will continue to be updated.
