Nexus is naturally a great spiritual space. Many people find it a calm, relaxed place in the city centre, ‘an oasis’. Our spirituality is broadly Christian and we offer a number of gentle and inclusive spiritual activities including ‘Half way’, a half hour guided meditation class and spirituality film night where we watch a film and then discuss issues that are raised.
Our minister Al Lowe is also available on a regular basis to discuss spiritual or pastoral issues. If you would like to speak to him please call the cafe or send an email to email@example.com.
Sanctus 1, a Christian community that tries to find God in a contemporary way also meet here on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm and Sunday Morning at 10:30am. Sanctus 1 also use Nexus as a base for its chaplaincy work. www.sanctus1.co.uk
Here at Nexus we care what you think about topical issues! That’s why we give you the opportunity to voice your opinions, with our monthly spirituality questionnaire!
Our current ‘Issue of the month’ is: THE QUEEN IS 90….how do you feel about the Royal Family? If you want to have your say, pop into the cafe and fill in a questionnaire.
Here are your responses from previous questionnaires…..
ISSUE OF THE MONTH: HEALTH

“It’s distorted by modern living, consumerism and capitalism”
“abused and ruined for future generations”
“I’m terrified by the disrespect we show to Mother Earth….her natural beauty overawes me”

Is climate change a spiritual issue?
“No, not at all”
“Spirituality increases our awareness of our fundamental dependency on the planet”

“Not for me…but I understand that many feel a profound connection to the planet”
“I believe in Gaia and have felt the energetic vibrations of the universe that connects us all – we are all one”
“Yes undoubtedly – whatever you connect through – religion or atheism”
How does your spirituality influence how ‘green’ you live?
“Every action causes another…I appreciate my waste has a knock on effect, as does every purchase”.
“Making conscious decisions about ethically sourced local food….being spiritual I make greener choices”
“I live as well as it is in my means to do so…and would whether or not I was spiritually inclined”.
