Christians in Science

Student conferences

CiS organises a number of conferences throughout the year, including an annual student conference.  Students get discounts on all of our conferences and can apply for travel bursaries to help with transportation costs.

Conferences provide excellent opportunities to meet and network with other Christians in science at varying stages of their careers and we really encourage our student members to come along and get involved. You can submit an abstract to present, help with the planning, marketing, or lend a hand on the day.

2019 Student Conference 

The Bible and Modern Science: honouring God’s word, exploring God’s works 

Saturday 9th March 2019, The Diamond, University of Sheffield

At Christians in Science, we believe that God reveals Himself to us through His divinely inspired written word, the Bible, and through His creation. Science is a gift from God that allows us even the tiniest glimpse into the splendour of His universe. Therefore, we are convinced that the Bible and science are not in conflict; they can both teach us about God and His creation in important and complementary ways.

Join us at the 2019 CiS student conference as we open up our Bibles and hear from four fantastic speakers:

  • Professor Sir Colin Humphreys – Can a scientist believe in Biblical miracles? 
  • Professor Tom McLeish – Biblical thinking through science as gift: the Book of Job and Paul’s long letters
  • Dr Bethany Sollereder – Reading Genesis through ancient eyes: creation in ancient near Eastern context 
  • Hannah Malcolm – The community of creation? Reading scripture in an age of climate chaos

Travel bursaries

We can fully reimburse travel costs for those students travelling >50 miles to the conference, using any form of transport, although we encourage use of public transport where possible to minimise environmental impact. Travel bursaries will be given on a first come, first served basis, so get in touch with the Development Officer as soon as possible to make an application.
