Taize Prayer Service

7:30pm – 12:00 AM


Taize is a simple form of prayer, with candles lit and songs sung repeatedly, rich silence and prayers of praise and our intercessions that night will be for Breast Cancer. Come and join us as we pray for those who have fought with breast cancer and survived, those who lost their battle and those who continue to fight the battle of breast cancer.
