We're broadcasting live every night at the moment, so that everyone can join in from home during the corona lockdown. Each Sunday we have our usual Taizé-style evening prayer, and from Monday to Saturday we have a shorter night prayer. Join us live at 8pm each night, or at 10pm for the recorded repeat. For night prayer you can read long with us if you like by visiting the Church of England daily prayer web page (link opens in a new tab) and following the link on that page for Night Prayer. Bring your own candle.

Taizé-style Christian worship held in Church Stretton, Shropshire. A balance of reflective worship songs from Taizé, Scripture readings, and thoughtful silence. Duration of about 40 minutes.
Organised by a group of Stretton musicians and friends who like singing Taizé songs and worshipping together. Ecumenical, holding all Christian denominations in high regard. Attended by people from various church backgrounds and none. Associated with Churches Together in the Strettons, which is part of the wider Churches Together in Shropshire grouping.
Open to all and everyone is very welcome.
Usually, Stretton Taizé evenings are on the third Sunday of every other month. They take place at 6pm at St Milburga's church, near the Church Stretton traffic lights. But 2020 is turning out not to be the year that we expected, so all Taizé evenings are suspended until further notice. But see the "Live" section on this page for how to join in online.
To be reminded of future dates, live broadcasts, and hopefully the resumption of normal service, contact us at [email protected] and ask to be put on the emailing list.
