Faith and Fellowship
There are a variety of ways for you to explore and expand your faith journey at Julian of Norwich. We consider all of our ministry and social justice actions a way to follow your call as a Christian and as such one key way to strengthen your faith journey is to consider volunteering in the many outreach activities we do (like cooking a meal for Cornerstone Housing for Women, volunteering at our Nearly New Shop, supporting our fellowship times after church on Sundays, attend Dinner Church, and more!)
In addition we run a variety of formation opportunities:
Advent & Lent Programs are promoted through our E-News
Christian Meditation: Every Monday, a group meets in the church sanctuary for Christian meditation from 3pm – 4pm.
These sessions are open to anyone who wishes to spend time in silent prayer, with instructions provided for newcomers. The group is coordinated by Julian of Norwich parishioners, but also includes people from other denominations.
During each session, a discussion video by a Christian Meditation leader is followed by a period of silent reflection. The session concludes with questions and discussion.
For more information, contact Gayle Ascah (613-226-8161) or Marg Dumbrille (613-225-0806).
Bible Curiosi-Tea: On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Fridays of the month a small group meets to have tea and discuss the upcoming Sunday Gospel Reading. The gathering takes place in the Sanctuary and/or the Chapel. For more information please contact Pam Middleton at email@example.com.
Dinner Church is a holistic, neighbourhood based expression of church that dispels isolation, reconnects neighbours, and subverts the status quo, all around the dinner table. Dinner church is a church service including worship, prayer… and food!
Our 2019 Dinner Church Schedule launches on February 7th and the services take place from 6pm ~ 8pm in the sanctuary at Julian of Norwich:
February 7th & 21st
March 7th & 21st
April 18th (part of the Maundy Thursday services in the Sanctuary)
May 2nd, 16th and 30th
June 6th & 20th
July 4th & 18th
Sign Up Sheets will be available on the evening for those who can assist with greeting, name tag making, table set up, serving, and clean up. If you would like to come a bit early to help set the tables we welcome you to join in the fun!

Grandfather Griffin Drum Circle
Come join our Drum Circle, with native drumming, rattles and sticks, on Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This is a group of individuals who wish to share their Native Culture with the community. This fellowship group (not a healing group) consists of men and women, ages 16 and over, from all walks of life, who wish to share their First Nations, Me tis and/or Inuit culture, traditions, teachings, songs, art, and stories with others.
Words from Daniel: “We believe that by opening our DRUM CIRCLE to anyone wishing to learn and share in our Native Traditions Songs, as well as Christian Songs, will lead to greater understanding and respect among us. In doing this, we make our circle complete so that everyone has a place of honour and the community becomes stronger for it. We are not-for-profit, and all Are Welcome! We wish to share our Walk with those looking to learn.”
We meet at 7 Sidney Street (near Preston and Carling, bus routes 85 and 101). Please contact Daniel to confirm this week’s location: email@example.com.
