About Our Events


The Spiritual Transformation Project hosts a number of recurring events in the Austin area aimed at developing local community around fun and meaningful events, and to provide opportunities for network partners to connect with one another in an informal setting. These include regular Beer & Hymns sing-alongs, Theology Pub discussion nights, monthly New Story Community Socials, and a Movies & Meaning series in conjunction with Mobile Loaves & Fishes’ Community First! Village.

STP offers these events to local spiritual and faith-based communities as opportunities to amplify and enrich their own existing efforts. Let us do the organizing work - partner communities are welcome to “white label” and promote these events as their own. Contact Mike with any questions.

Movies & Meaning

Together with the Community First! Village Cinema, STP hosts regular movie screenings of thought-provoking films followed by lively panel discussions with local thought leaders.


Beer and Hymns

Beer & Hymns is exactly what it sounds like: we drink beer and sing classic hymns together in local pubs… and raise money for local charities!


Austin Theology Pub

Theology Pub is a friendly, open-minded, spiritually-inclusive event discussing issues ranging among religion, ethics, philosophy, politics, social issues, and personal growth.


let us organize your events!

STP can organize a range of evening, one-day, and weekend events for your organization to offer resources for more effective personal and social transformation.

We are interested in hearing from you about what sort of events would be most useful to your community. If you have ideas for events you would like us to help organize or promote, please contact us.
