The Taizé Community is an ecumenical monastic order located in Taizé, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Protestant and Catholic traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. The community was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schutz, a Protestant, and guidelines for the community’s life are contained in ‘The Rule of Taizé’ written by Brother Roger and first published in French in 1954

The community has become one of the world's most important sites of Christian pilgrimage. Over 100,000 young people from around the world make pilgrimages to Taizé each year for prayer, Bible study, sharing, and communal work. Through the community's ecumenical outlook, they are encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation.

 Our regular Taizé prayer at Chalice occurs on the first Saturday of each month at 5:30pm (except in January)

Keep in touch with what we are up to via the Facebook group for Taize in Melbourne. The group regularly plays host to a Brother from Taizé
