July 2020: We are really sad that we have had to put Nexus Café to sleep for the moment, owing to the ongoing pressures of the current situation. We have been amazed by the love and generosity our regulars have shown in their social media (Facebook and Twitter posts, click on links to follow). The leadership is already considering how to reopen when the time is right. In the meantime, please hold Nexus Café in your prayers, remembering especially staff members who have lost their jobs and all those who miss the safe, beautiful space that has been crafted over the years.

About the Café
Nexus Art Café is a creative space in the heart of the city centre striving to build community based on an ethos of inclusion, respect and hospitality. Working from our three corner stones of creativity, community and spirituality we operate a not-for-profit café and arts venue where we showcase the work of emerging creative practitioners, facilitate local grassroots organisations and work with our users towards sustainable community development projects. Through our Minister we further offer a number of spiritual activities linked to Sanctus 1, a Christian community who meet regularly in the café.
Nexus Art Café is an exclusively alcohol and drug free venue which creates a safe place for people to come and relax without the pressure of drinking. We hold regular events, exhibitions and gigs for people to enjoy an alternative evening out.
Our lovely café is the setting for an exciting and varied programme of events. Check out the website (click on the link above). Venture down the stairs and give us a try!
