The Taizé Community is composed of around a hundred brothers. They come from different Christian traditions over twenty-five different countries, and make a life commitment to live together in joy, simplicity, and mercy as a "parable of community," a sign of the Gospel's call to reconciliation at the heart of the world.

Tens of thousands of young adults come throughout each year to spend a week going to the roots of the Christian faith. They join in the community's worship three times a day, listen to Bible introductions on the sources of the faith, spend time reflecting in silence, and meet in small sharing-groups.

Spending a week listening to people one's own age from countries as diverse as Lithuania, Canada, the Philippines, and Portugal, all of whom are sharing deeply about their searching and their struggle to live out their faith, can be a life-transforming experience for those who take part. And the community encourages participants, when they return home, to take back what they have discovered and put it into practice in the concrete conditions of their life – in their parishes, their place of work or study, their families.

The Community has no desire to create a movement centered on Taizé, but encourages each person to become a bearer of peace and reconciliation wherever he or she lives. The "songs of Taizé" make it possible for hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world to be linked in common praise of God.
