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

Nazarene Theological College: March 13-14, 2019

Deadline for applications: February 25, 2019

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.

Programme:
Day 1: Professional updating talks on contemporary ‘hot topics’ in the dialogue between Science and Faith
Choice of evening events:

  • Nazarene College: Open session – ‘Why I am a scientist and a Christian’
  •  University of Manchester, St Peters House: Public lecture - ‘Has science removed the need for God?’

Day 2: A choice of three Study Streams:

  1.  Pastoral issues within Science, Faith and Human flourishing
  2. Science, Faith and Human Flourishing in worship and preaching
  3. Science, Faith and Human Flourishing in the younger generation

The cost of this two-day workshop is £50 to include tea & coffee breaks, a sandwich lunch on both days and all workshop materials.

Delegates will be responsible for their own overnight accommodation and evening meals.
