Nooma end of term

Next Tuesday, 9th, Nooma will be taking a week off. The following Tuesday, 16th, we’ll meet at the earlier time of 7pm for our traditional end of term meal. Bring a plate of food to share, all welcome!

Nooma – Animate: Faith

Next term Nooma will be looking at the seven week “Animate: Faith” course. This is a great opportunity for those who aren’t regulars at Nooma to come along and have a taste…

Animate is an original take on adult education that stirs curiosity. Participants are engaged and inspired to connect with their faith. Facilitators don’t have to have all the answers. Animate encourages everyone–including the facilitator–to participate in the experience, have a point of view, and deepen faith.
Videos bring seven contemporary Christian leaders from across the country into your group setting. They are authors, pastors, theological experts, and professors–and they each have compelling perspectives.
Animate resources appeal to a variety of learning styles, and have lots of ideas for discussion. Sessions don’t include fill-in-the-blank activities or answer guides, but they do include prompts for creativity–like doodling.

We’ll kick off the term with a shared meal together, on October 8th, at 7pm (bring a plate of food to share), then start the series the following Tuesday at the usual time of 7:45pm.

Embracing the Prophets

This term at Nooma will be short (6 week) series looking at Walter Brueggemann’s “Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture”. As always, everyone is welcome to join us at 7:45pm at the Manse.

Nooma end of term dinner

The Lent studies on “The Lion’s World” have finished, and so Nooma is taking a break until after Easter. But we’ll be having our traditional end of term dinner on Tuesday April 9th, at 7pm – just bring a plate of something to share!

Love Wins – Introduction

Tonight at Nooma we’ll be starting our series of studies on Rob Bell’s “Love Wins”. This week will just be an introduction, so if you can’t make it, and would like to join us for subsequent weeks, please let me know so I can get a copy of the book and the questions we’ll be exploring to you!

Love Wins @ Nooma

Starting on September 6th, Nooma will be starting a series of studies based on Rob Bell’s controversial “Love Wins”. Come along to explore perspectives on heaven, hell, and life before and after death… 7:45pm, Tuesday nights at the Manse.

Nooma dinner

Next Tuesday (28th) is the last Nooma of term, and as has become our tradition we’ll be meeting at the earlier time of 7pm for a shared meal. All welcome, please bring a plate of food to share.

Nooma dinner

This tuesday (April 5) is the last Nooma of term, and as has become traditional, we’ll be marking the occasion with a meal at the Manse. Meet at the earlier time of 7pm, please bring a plate of food to share. Everyone is welcome!

Pancakes!

Last reminder – pancakes tonight at the manse! If you’d like, bring along something to eat with them.

Some people like them fat and fluffy, some people like them thin and crispy. Some people probably don’t like them – well, that’s bad luck for them.

Shrove tuesday is traditionally pancake day, a final day of indulgence before the rigours of lent. Whether you plan for a rigour-full lent or not, please come along for the indulgence bit. At the manse, Tuesday March 8th, from 6:30pm until late, please feel free to drop in any time and stay for as long or as little as you like.

This pancake party will replace Nooma for the evening!
