Coffee Gatherings

All A Nouwen Network gatherings are held from 12:30pm – 2:30pm. The gatherings are held on different days of the week in the various locations. Those members who commit to being the local host group choose the day. Some gatherings are set down for very regular intervals others are not. 

At all our gatherings some people come and order a midday meal, and others choose to drop in for a while just for a coffee and chat. Feel free to do what suits you. Perhaps you could bring somebody along with you? Please invite anybody you think might like to connect with A Nouwen Network. We are not a ‘club’. We have ‘regulars’, but we meet wonderful new friends and neighbours all the time!

At present all our gatherings are in Brisbane. We have regular enquiries from people in country areas of QLD, and from interstate, asking if there is a gathering near them. We would love to say ‘yes’. Our ‘friendship & coffee catch-up’ model is very simple, and it has been running for several years now.                If you are interested in reading more about the gatherings see:
