Merton Spirituality and Formation

This page is to help everyone in Merton Deanery to share different aspects of Christian Spirituality. To help people find ways into spiritual practices that they might find helpful, and to connect with each other in prayer.

A small Rosary Group meets on the first Sunday of the month at 6.00pm to pray the Rosary.

A Julian Meeting is a group of three or more people who meet regularly for silent Christian contemplative prayer.

There are two Julian Meetings in our Deanery.

One at 7.00pm on the second Wednesday of each month at
Mitcham Parish Church (St Peter & St Paul CR4 4LD).

The other is the St Mary’s Julian Silent Prayer Group which is a well established group that meets on the first Thursday of each month between 11.30 – 12.30 pm.

Anyone wishing to join either St Mary’s Julian Silent Prayer Group or The Julian CafĂ© should contact Charlotte Ennis, email: charlotte.ennis@gmail.com.  All are warmly welcome.

Our aim is simply to deepen our spiritual understanding and help to give us courage to live with a wider breadth of that experience.

The Julian Cafe brings people together for a fortnightly meeting that takes place online on a Tuesday morning between 10 am – 11 am.

Each session brings together a mix of contemplative prayer and a faith-based theme taken from the Bible or an extract from Mthr Julian herself. The group is encouraged to choose the subject matter of the theme that leads the conversation in ways that are reflected in our everyday lives.
Why not come and join the conversation?

Finding the peace that we seek…
