The Friends of Julian is an international association of people who have been inspired by the spiritual legacy of the medieval mystic and writer Julian of Norwich.

Our purpose is to encourage interest in Julian’s life and work. We do this through facilitating a prayer network, carrying out educational initiatives, and by offering guidance and resources for visitors to the Julian Shrine.

If you are able to join us in person, you will find a warm welcome at the Julian Centre or at one of our regular events. And whether you live near or far from Julian's city, you can be linked in by joining a membership programme, buying books at the online shop, or simply by donating funds to support our work.

* Whether your interest in Julian is religious or secular, we hope this website will assist you on your journey.
