Frequently Asked Questions

So, what's it all about?

Well, exactly. That's just the sort of thing we talk about.

No, I mean, what's Theology in the Pub?

It's a chance to talk about important things, with interesting people. We usually have a speaker on a topic, and then open discussion. Oh, and something to drink.

Who organises it?

Well, this website has been set up by a Theology in the Pub group in Nottingham, which is led by Fr David Palmer - a Catholic Priest of the Ordinariate. There are other groups around - we'll be asking them whether they want to list their events here too.

When and Where does this all happen?

We usually meet in the Hand and Heart pub in Nottingham, on a Tuesday evening about monthly. Check the Diary page for details.

Is alcohol compulsory?

No, not at all. It's up to you: the kind people behind the bar will give you a soft drink if you prefer. (But incidentally, if you do prefer alcohol, they do a CAMRA discount).

Do I have to be Catholic?

No, but be aware that most of us are, so the context will tend to be Catholic. If you're not, it's a good way of finding out more - and of meeting Catholics who are interested in thinking about their faith.

Do I have to know a lot about theology?

Not at all. Some people know a fair bit; others don't. You can come and share your erudition, or you can come and ask questons - or both. No-one knows it all, after all.

Does it cost anything?

Well, you'll want a drink. And if there have been expenses to meet for a speaker for the evening, we'll pass a hat round (literally, if we can find a hat). But it's not expensive.

What is going on in that picture above these questions?

We don't actually know, and we're not sure we want to!

I have other questions!

Don't we all! But if you'd like to ask something before coming along, you can .
