Saturday morning discussions

TGIFx meets monthly on Saturday mornings specifically to discuss the difficult topics we need to talk about in South Africa. TGIFx meets at participants' homes, at a different venue each month, and has a separate mailing list from the "normal" Friday morning TGIF.

To be placed on this list, send an email with subject "TGIFx" to discuss[at], and briefly introduce yourself with a sentence or two about you.

About TGIF

What topics are discussed?

TGIF covers a wide range of topics including worldviews, ethics, leadership, popular culture and contemporary issues. In this, TGIF generally explores the truth & goodness of Biblical Christianity and its relevance to all of life and reality.

Who is it for?

Although its origins are Christian, TGIF very much aims to be of benefit to people of all (or no) convictions. Everyone is welcome, entrance is free, and no prior booking is required.
