‘Hidden Treasure’ – Taize weekend in Birmingham, May 2017

Hidden Treasure - TaizeAn international gathering for young adults, facilitated by the Taizé Community during the early May Bank Holiday weekend, 28th April to 1st May 2017.

The main prayer events over the weekend will take place in City Centre churches.  Workshops will be held in the afternoons and include times of regular community prayer.

  • 16-35 year-olds are invited for the full weekend.
  • 16-18 year-olds may alternatively come for a one day programme on the Saturday.
  • The prayer gatherings will be open to people of all ages.
  • Birmingham Church leaders are being invited particularly to the Saturday evening prayer.

Full details about how to get involved can be found here: http://www.taize.fr/en_article20934.html

Provisional programme: http://www.taize.fr/en_article20444.html

In eight host neighbourhoods local people of different churches will be working in teams during the coming year to prepare accommodation and a programme for the young participants.  Harborne is one of the eight areas in the city the organisers want to have as a welcome centre.

Churches Together in Harborne has been contacted to facilitate this and Cynthia Deeson from St Mary’s is heading up a small working group from all the local churches, who will be helping with preparation and arranging hospitality and transport for the young people coming from many other countries to the events. She would be very pleased to include a representative from St John’s (who may or may not be in the same age group as the delegates). Anyone who is interested in joining the working party, please contact our CTH rep Helen Nixon or Cynthia Deeson direct on CynDeeson@aol.com

There will also be a need in due course for host families to provide accommodation for the young participants who are visitors over the event weekend.
