About Friends of Julian

The Friends of Julian of Norwich is a spiritual community, inspired by the Revelations of Divine Love, seeking to grow in the knowledge and love of God alongside fellow pilgrims. We offer hospitality around the Julian Shrine, encourage contemplative quiet, and share resources for spiritual deepening. 

Many Friends live in Norwich and Norfolk, England but many more live in other parts of the UK and others in countries all round God's world. Consisting of men and women, ordained and lay, in the Church and outside of it, the Friends share a common love for Julian and a desire for her Revelations to become more widely known to others.

Individual Friends share in the work of the Friends in different ways, some by their lives of prayer, others by speaking about Julian, informally or at events. Some organise prayer groups where they live and worship. Others attempt to embody Julian's Revelations in daily life, by practising compassion, faith, trust and love. 

If you love God, love Julian, or humankind, which Julian reveals as God's greatest treasure and delight, we invite you to join in our work.  Each Friend offers an annual donation to support the work of the Friends of Julian of Norwich, including this website, hosptiality around the Julian Shrine and our educational work, together with events on spirituality and prayer.  The minimum subscription is £20 per annum, but some offer much more.
