Christian staff network (CSN)

The CSN exists to connect members of staff with each other, for conversation, mutual support and usually, of course, to share food with a group lunch once or twice a term. Although most people in the network are Christians, we welcome colleagues of any faith or none, to share in our activities and value each person's experience of how faith impacts our work-lives. Things have been on pause for a while but we'll update you here and via the weekly bulletin when we're meeting again. In the meantime... the Connections cafes are back in person!


Connections Cafes

Streatham, Tuesdays and Fridays: 11 am - 1 pm, Neil Cross room, Level 1 in the Forum Library

We run a soup lunch Mondays 12:45 – 2 pm weekly in term time (open to all staff and students) at the Chapel.
