Our programme of monthly social events is intended to make it easy for newcomers and visitors to join in. Events at Christ Church generally happen after the Sunday morning service. We can provide lifts to other venues. Our plans can change and we may organise other ad hoc events too, so it's best to get on our email list to be sure of the latest information.
Nexus is co-ordinated by Emily Spencer and Natalie Jeffery. The group has members from a wide range of backgrounds and nations. Many take on rôles in the wider church, including leadership.
It's in the nature of things that this age group is fairly mobile: the joy of someone getting a new job or completing a course is often followed by the sorrow of their leaving. Nexus provides a point of connection no matter how short or long your stay.
Nexus also provides a link with young people who have grown up in Christ Church and gone away to university elsewhere... and we are always ready to welcome and involve students who come to Birmingham, whatever their home country.
The first ever Nexus Weekend Away was held near Malvern in October 2012, with the theme of Living life well. The Old Testament book of Proverbs encourages us to build our lives on reverence for God - so how does everything in life then fit together?
The weekend was such a success that another was held two years later, this time at Quinta, Shropshire. Once again the activities included enjoying the countryside, a barbecue, a bonfire and some highly competitive games alongside teaching and discussion.
