CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT THE BULL

WHAT WE’RE ABOUT

nottinghamNAVS is a network of university students who are trying to figure out life, love and faith together. We’re for anyone who wants to honestly wrestle with life’s big questions, make new friends, eat great food and see what happens. It’s Christianity, but without the bull.

Why not join the conversation?

REAL

Why keep things superficial? If we’re going to talk about life, let’s talk about real life in all its confusion and messiness. nottinghamNAVS is a place to get real and experience the kind of honesty that normally only comes after a few drinks.

RELEVANT

What does Christianity have to say to your work, your sex life, your mental health, or the things you do for fun?  More than you might think!  This ain’t no pie-in-the-sky-when-you-die Christianity, only the nitty gritty of life and living as a student in Nottingham in 2016.

RELATIONAL

Why not bring a friend?  Doing this stuff is much more fun with a crowd, so we always strive to make sure that nottinghamNAVS is mates-friendly.  No entry requirements: anyone can come and everyone is welcome, no matter their starting point.

REPRODUCIBLE

Why keep it to yourself? We want to equip you with the know-how to make a difference wherever you are, with whoever is around you and whatever you do as you pass on what you learn. Be part of the movement!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…

Navs is a place where I am encouraged to be myself in all my messiness, and to welcome Jesus into the disaster which is my life. Each week I learn more of how His strength shines through my flaws. Bethan Woodward

Student, Nottingham University

Navs is like those deep conversations you have after some beer… but without the beer. Although often there is beer. Oli Towlson
