The Still Service

On the Second Sunday of each month at 6.00pm

Still is a time to give space for God, space for prayer. A time to pause and consider in the hustle and bustle of our lives. Still will be based around Night Prayer/Compline with stillness, quiet, space, candles, silence, short readings, recorded music and simple prayer.

Julian Prayer Group

The group meets on the last Wednesday of every month in St James Church at 2.00 pm.

It is a service lasting about 40 minutes, starting with a short meditation followed by a piece of music leading into 30 minutes of silent contemplative prayer.  A piece of music follows the silence, and ending with a short prayer.
