Cursillo - meeting together for spiritual renewal
A very brief paragraph from the Chichester Cursillo website
CURSILLO (a short course in Christianity) offers a method to examine the fundamentals of our faith and what it means to  be effective Christians in the world today, both in a weekend of spiritual growth and renewal and through ongoing support in small groups and larger gatherings.
It is also an opportunity to meet and share with others on similar journeys and great fun!

Julian Meeting - a fortnightly group for contemplative prayer 
The following is an extract from The Julian Meetings website:
What is a Julian Meeting? A Julian Meeting is a small group of people (usually 6-15) of various denominations, both lay people and clergy, who meet regularly for silent contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition.We teach no specific method but encourage people to find what is right for them. Some meetings are held in churches, others in private houses. Some meetings may be followed by discussion and refreshments; at others people may come and leave in silence.A brief reading and/or music may introduce the silence and lead out at the end. The silence usually lasts for about half an hour. Intercessory prayer is not normally part of a Julian Meeting.
Why are they called Julian Meetings? The movement was named after Julian of Norwich, a fourteenth century mystic, because several founder members came from Norfolk and were familiar with Mother Julian and her precept that the highest form of prayer consists in simply waiting on God.  Her inspired writings are sometimes used at meetings but Julian Meetings is in no way a Julian cult.
