Upcoming Events:

Monday 5th March 2018
God in the Science Lab: curiosity, awe and the meaning of life.
Dr Ruth Bancewicz, a research scientist-turned-communicator from Cambridge, will explore how scientific curiosity can lead towards deeper questions about our place in the natural world. Dr Bancewicz will base her talk on her new book exploring the relationship between science and faith – “God in the Lab: How science enhances faith”.

This talk will draw on the stories of several scientists who are also people of faith. These examples help us to see that, when it comes to answering some of life’s big questions, we do well to include the insights from both science and faith.
