The Living Room is a place to make friends and experience personal growth in the local community. Think of it like the village hall of the Nine Elms village church where you can join in with a variety events with others in the area. We are Local, Accessible, Informed and Relevant. We want to make Nine Elms a great place for all. Welcome to The Living Room!
Nine Elms Advent Calendar Trail 2020
The Living Room is taking part in this year’s Nine Elms Advent Calendar Trail. 24 wonderfully bright, cheerful and thought-provoking windows around Nine Elms created by local artists and installed in local windows. As well as creating our own window on the trail, the Living Room Team are hosting an early evening ‘Walk the Trail’ starting with open air carols by the Battersea Park Community Choir on Friday 18th December. Check out the events details below, and for the full Trail information see www.nineelmsartsministry.org.
Studying in London is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy one of the world’s most diverse cities. But being a student in London can be hard – away from familiar people and routines, and maybe even away from our own country. At The Living Room we welcome students who want to meet for a chat (on zoom of course) or advice or to take part in activities around the area. Why not connect with us below to stay informed about what’s happening.
Enneagrams for Personal Development
Life, love and work – areas of challenge in lockdown. This time of forced self-discovery has left many of us puzzled and uneasy about things we’ve learned about ourselves. So to the Enneagram, an ancient yet thoroughly modern tool to help us understand who we really are and so see our most natural fit in life.
In 2021 we begin guided conversations about exploring personality through the Enneagram and would love you to join us. Interested? Let us know through the sign up form, and look out here for more information.
Stir Fry Theology
Ever feel you’d like to understand theology without reading dozens of complicated books? Here’s an answer. Like the culinary dish, Stir Fry Theology is fast, fresh and appetizing. Over 4 weeks, engage in a small group on a theological topic. Bite into the themes of a Bible passage and get a taste of the vital stuff of Christian faith.
Surprise the World Life Groups
Church has moved online and into small groups. If you’re living or working in Nine Elms, a Life Group can help you put down spiritual roots, feel connected with Christians here, and deepen your discipleship.
In each weekly meeting, Life Groups discuss a chapter of Michael Frost’s book “Surprise the World”, learning how to live well and bless others.
9 Weeks For 9 Elms
The Living Room has launched 9 Weeks for 9 Elms, an early morning meeting online to pray for the world and our neighbours. After information and news sharing, we pray in breakout rooms on a different theme each week, from Harvest to Advent. Give 30 mins a week for 9 weeks. Read more at our blog post here.
