Julian Meeting

Monthly. Every First Tuesday at for 1 hour
The Rectory
1 Tippett Meadow St Columb, TR9 6TY, United Kingdom

Julian meetings are held at The Rectory on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm to share silence together.

Julian Meetings foster the practice of contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition and are named after Julian of Norwich, a fourteenth-century mystic.

In contemplative prayer, we seek to be aware of the presence of God and to remain silently and attentively in that presence. For those who are drawn to contemplative prayer, meeting with others in this way can be a great help and encouragement.

Our churches


Our Benefice is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officers (PSO). Our Diocese’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO.

Safeguarding Officer for the Benefice of LannPydar is Jackie Oglethorpe - [email protected] - 01637-860733

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO, listed on each church page, or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor Andy Earl - [email protected] - 01872 274351 or out of office hours 07591 203589.

Thirtyone:eight is the UK's only award-winning independent Christian safeguarding charity which helps individuals, organisations, charities, faith and community groups to protect vulnerable people from abuse - 0303 003 1111

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.

Safeguarding children is everyone’s business and protection only works if it comes with help that can address
the concerns people are worried about.”
Josh MacAlister, Chair of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care
