Dulwich & District


At present most meetings are ONLINE ONLY until "social distancing" is no longer needed.

Learn Digital Life Skills: This is a series of online learning sessions to introduce members to the many and varied elements of the digital world. They are provided free to Dulwich & District U3A members by the IT consultancy Systems & Smiles. The whole series is sponsored by the phone company, ‘3’. It runs on a Friday afternoon, normally fortnightly. Each session is self contained and there is no need to ‘attend’ the whole series – pick and choose as you wish. Also no need to register, just click on the ‘entrance code’, which will be provided to members each week. Details of future sessions are in the Workshops section below. The sessions will be recorded and made available to members online - we will notify members of how to access them when they are available.

In addition to the Interest Groups we organise a monthly meeting as an opportunity for members to meet each other, swap experiences and new ideas for groups, ask questions and listen to a visiting speaker.

The links to the online meetings are sent out to members approximately 24 hours before the event. Note: Non-members are welcome to attend these meetings and should contact the secretary (click on the blue bird logo) to obtain the link.

Dates for your Diary
Thu Jan 27th How to ‘read’ the English Country Church
A talk by the Revd Dr Nicholas Henderson, 2pm to 4pm.
A ‘HYBRID’ meeting’ live from the Francis Peek Centre in Dulwich Park and Zoomed to members. Due to space restrictions, members who wish to attend MUST book their seats in advance by sending an email to events@dulwich-u3a.uk, quoting their membership number. All members will automatically receive a Zoom link to view the event online 24 hours before the event. Non-members can receive a Zoom link by clicking here to book: COUNTRYCHURCHES
It is possible to ‘read’ the passage of time, of movements, cultures and peoples in the architecture and art forms evident in many of our older English country churches. This talk takes us from the pre-Christian era, through the arrival of the Romans and onwards to the sixteenth century and the epoch changing Tudors.
A graduate of Selwyn College, Cambridge, Nicholas Henderson trained for the Anglican ministry at Ripon Hall, Oxford. Inspired by a period working on the staff of Coventry Cathedral he has gained a wide experience of international matters. He is a Vice President of ‘Modern Church’ (founded 1898) the oldest theological society in the Anglican Communion. He is also interested in the study of Anglicanism both historical and contemporary and is the editor of a website dedicated to the study of the subject.
