Taizé Service, Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 7:00 pm. (in-person)
Join us for our Taizé service on the first Wednesday of each month. The ZOOM link can be obtained by contacting the office or subscribing to our newsletter.
Taizé is a contemplative, ecumenical prayer service in the model set by the French village of Taizé.
This prayer service moves along according to a certain rhythm through sung prayers, simple, beautiful music, a time of silence, and spoken and silent prayers. In these pandemic times that have brought so much change and uncertainty to our lives, we invite all to join with us to stop, pray, and listen to the “still, small voice” within.

Interim Northampton Community Resilience Hub
We are thrilled to be partnering with Community Action (CAPV) and MANNA Community Kitchen in the expansion of space and services at St. John’s, which will serve as the interim Northampton Community Resilience Hub until the city opens a permanent location. This is a big step in making services and support more accessible to those who are unhoused in Northampton and we are very excited to be a part of it. Read more about it here.
The Resilience Hub is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM at St. John’s Church. Enter through the campus side entrance to access showers, laundry, and other services.
There are many online resources available to us for prayer and study at home during this time. We invite you to review what we know to be available via Zoom, YouTube, Facebook, telephone conference calls, and various websites.
For more information on any of the above, please contact Ben Durfee in the church office by email or at the church’s main phone number 413-584-1757.
