A reflective service following the Taizé community in France. It is distinctive for the style of music which is integral to the worship: simple, repetitive chants, usually accompanied by instruments. The chants, slowly repeated, provide a focus for the mind while the spirit can go deeper into prayer. There is a scripture reading, a short address and times of silence and prayer.
One of the main weekly services at St Helen's. For children, Junior Church (3-7) and Quest (8-14) leave at various points during the service for their own Ministry of the Word. They return during the Peace to worship with the rest of the congregation. For younger children there is a toddler play corner within the church.
