Much of our worship focuses on the Eucharist or Holy Communion, where we receive bread and wine to remember God’s love for us and to receive God’s grace.

Julian Group

The Julian Meetings is a national organisation of local groups dedicated to the practice of contemplative prayer, inspired by the example and writings of the medieval mystic Julian of Norwich (c.1342-c.1416).If this sounds like something only for those with a first-class degree in holiness, be assured it is nothing of the kind. Silent prayer is for everyone, and perhaps especially those who find prayer difficult.

Our Meeting has been established for many years, but since 2015 has been meeting monthly in church, usually in the Lady Chapel. We start by lighting a candle to remind us that Jesus is always among those who come together in his name. There is a brief introduction from the leader and then we sit in silence for 30 minutes. Many thoughts may come into our minds, not always holy or welcome; we simply acknowledge them and let them go. In the peace, we note the sounds around us, nearby and far away, the sounds of our own bodies – our breathing. We simply spend time with God. At the end, we say the Grace, and then enjoy a brief time of fellowship and refreshment in the coffee lounge.

The St John’s Julian Meeting is not currently able to meet physically. However, we are now “meeting”  every Monday evening (instead of our usual monthly meeting) by sitting down in our homes at 8pm (with a lighted candle, if safe) for 30 minutes of silent prayer “together-apart”. All are welcome to “join” us.

We warmly welcome new members, or anyone just wanting to see what a Julian Meeting is like.
