‘The Quiet Witness of Julian Meetings’
If you are drawn to SILENT PRAYER, do come and join the Julian Meetings, held on the first Tuesday of each month from 6pm-7pm in St Mary the Virgin church, Mortlake High Street. Contemplative prayer began around the 4th century and Julian Meetings (after Julian of Norwich) have been held nationwide since 1973 – for people of all denominations or none who wish to join with others in silent prayer in the Christian tradition; to give time and space to allow God’s stillness by laying everything aside, just ‘being’, not ‘doing’. Resting in the present moment. Meetings gather in silence, a sentence is read followed by half an hour’s silent prayer ending with the sentence repeated. Refreshment is provided for those who wish to stay and chat.
