Wednesdays

Meditation - 12.15 to 12.45pm, HEL252
A chance to relax and rest the mind in silence. It will be introduced by Eleanor Richards, associate Buddhist chaplain to the University. We will learn a straightforward approach to meditation, which will be of value to those of all faiths or none. This is an opportunity to take some time in the busy day to pause, reflect and find some silence. Free.

A fun group that meets to learn how to identify wild flowers and learn plant ecology.

Thursdays

Pop-Up Café - 1.30 - 2.30pm, Old café area in LAB, beyond the iCentre

Tea&Text - 5.00 to 6.30pm, HEL252
This semester we shall be reading Mark’s Gospel. This is the most enigmatic of the gospels. The ending lacks any reports of meeting the risen Jesus and, in fact, the women who find the empty tomb are described as telling no one about it. Jesus goes out of his way sometimes to tell people not to identify him as Messiah and regularly reprimands his disciples for not understanding him. These are just three key points interpreters have to take on board when thinking about Mark. How this-worldly and political is Mark, or is it mainly about explaining who Jesus is?
