Mon-Fri · St Andrew the Great · 2-4pm
The Tomorrow Cafe will be running every afternoon, Monday to Friday. We’ll be serving coffee, hot drinks and cake. The cafe is a space to meet up, hang out, and continue conversation and discussion off the back of the lunch time talks.
Join us in the TOMORROW Café, 2–3pm daily, where refreshments will be served and we’ll have an opportunity to engage in deeper conversation about the big questions we have about Tomorrow. The café promises chill vibes and an opportunity to have cool conversations. See below for more info!
A discussion exploring whether we can know the truth about the original New Testament documents, facilitated by an expert in textual criticism at the Faculty of Divinity.
Christians base their claims on the Bible, but how do we know it’s true? How can we know it’s true? Join us for an interactive discussion of New Testament manuscripts, facilitated by Michael Dormandy, who is an Affiliated Lecturer in the Divinity Faculty and is currently completing his PhD. His research interests are New Testament Textual Criticism and the Development of the New Testament Canon.
A discussion with a former solicitor now undertaking PhD research, looking at the impact of Christianity on the development of government and the rule of law.
Much of our lives depends on good government that treats people equally and with dignity. Is the Bible at all relevant to this, or does it have implications only for our personal private lives? Join us as we look at the impact of the Bible on the origins and development of the rule of law and how it ties into God’s vision for humans living together. We’ll explore how we can look forward to the government of tomorrow and how the principles in the Bible speak into the debate about what tomorrow will look like.

A discussion exploring how we use literature to express and define our identity.
Have you ever read a poem that wrenches your heart and makes you feel like you’ve leaned closer to the answers to the big questions of life? It sounds hyperbolic, but that’s the power of literature. And perhaps that effect is greater when you express your thoughts in a poem yourself? Join us as we share poems about identity and discuss the impact literature has on our perception of identity, personally and collectively. With so much literature around and so many different ideas, how can we anchor our identity in something secure? Our discussion will be led by Mike Hood, who recently graduated in English from Selwyn College.
A discussion examining whether immortality is necessarily desirable, with a member of Christian Heritage Cambridge.
Here in Cambridge, students often stand up and fight for worthy causes like climate change, cancer research, and transparent government. We seek after these ideals, because they represent progress as a human race. But they are so varied across all the disciplines. Join us for a discussion exploring: What is the common thread (if any) that runs through our ideas of progress? What motivates our desire for progress? Perhaps distilling that basic desire will tell us something about the human race and what we all innately hope for. Then, there is the question: Is it achievable? The discussion will be led by Jack Harding, who works with Christian Heritage, Cambridge.
A discussion with a solicitor sharing his personal experience of success as a Christian.
What are you metrics of success? Money; net social impact; position in the corporate hierarchy; number of academic qualifications? We can be so absorbed in our pursuits of success that we don’t stop to think: Where have we gotten our ideas of success from? Are we happy with them? Join us for a discussion about success. It promises to be a welcome and insightful pit stop from the back-to-back supervisions, so we can stop to think what we’re doing all this for!
