Christian Resources Exhibition International 2016 ExCel London: 17-20 May, 2016
We are delighted to be hosting a stand and presenting two seminars at this year’s Christian Resources Exhibition in London. Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) is one of the most ecumenical events in the Christian calendar and no other exhibition in Europe features so many organisations from such a broad church. Church leaders experience a wide range of resources under one roof, as well as receiving inspiration, teaching and encouragement through a programme of seminars and arts performances.
This year The Faraday Institute will have a stand for the four days, where visitors can access a wide range of resources and chat or discuss through various topics relating to science and religion. We are also pleased to be presenting the following seminars:
Tuesday 17th May Science and Faith
Has science disproved God? Should Christians avoid science? How can we reach non-believers who are convinced that religion has no place in a scientific world? Explore an approach with a positive attitude to the interactions of science and Christianity. Lizzie Coyle, The Faraday Institute
Wednesday 18th May
Wonders of the Living World: Biology and Belief
Step past the usual debates about science and faith, and instead celebrate creation, appreciate its intricacies and fruitfulness, and learn how science can hint at questions of meaning and purpose that go beyond science. Dr Ruth Bancewicz, The Faraday Institute
