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.
