What We Do

  • Foster the teaching and practice of contemplative prayer and meditation in the Christian tradition.
  • Encourage people to practise contemplative prayer and meditation in their daily lives, and to explore ways of doing this which are appropriate for them.
  • Support the individual ecumenical Julian Meetings - groups whose members meet regularly to practise Christian contemplative prayer and meditation together.

Our Members Are

  • Groups of people who meet regularly in order to grow in the practice of Contemplative Prayer and Meditation in the Christian tradition.
  • Those who subscribe to our magazine.
  • Many of our members, our 'lone Julians', are not members of a meeting. However they practise contemplative prayer and meditation and value the link with a wider community of contemplative people in the Christian tradition through our magazine, local quiet days, and our Forum, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Julian Meetings

Stay single pointed 

Have no set leadership 

Have minimal organisation 

Keep it small 

Are open to all 

Are adaptable 

Are willing to experiment with form
