Professional Workshop: Science and Faith in the Local Church - CAMBRIDGE

St Edmund's College, Cambridge: Jan 9-10, 2019

Deadline for applications: December 12, 2018

Aim of Course

This two-day workshop is for lay and ordained church leaders and for those in training from all denominations to enrich their understanding of the science-faith dialogue. In recent years as the UK has become more secularised Science is no longer perceived as a religious activity. Further, for many the Church is looked at as a community who no longer value the role of science.

This course is for both those who have a background in science and for those who have none. It is specifically designed to:

  • Better equip Christian leaders in their teaching on matters of Science and Faith by providing a deeper understanding of the diverse themes within this subject
  • Build confidence in Christian leaders to address Science and faith themes in teaching/ preaching/ group study and in pastoral care

The course will comprise three themes:

  • Contemporary hot topics in the dialogue between Science and Religion to include subjects such as cosmology, bioethics, climate change and natural disasters
  • Science and faith in the local Church
  • Pastoral approaches to Science-Faith issues

The workshop will run from 10.00am on Wednesday 9 Jan 2019 to 5.30pm on Thursday 10 Jan 2019. There will be no formal evening sessions.

  • The cost of this two-day workshop is £50 to include tea & coffee breaks, a sandwich lunch on both days and all workshop materials.
  • Places are limited to 60.
  • Delegates will be responsible for their own overnight accommodation and evening meals.
