Welcome, students!

Equipping Christian students to deal with questions of science and faith is a key part of our  ministry, and we aim to provide a supportive and encouraging network for science students as they grow and develop in their Christian faith. Christians in Science grew out of UCCF as a professional group a number of years ago, and student work remains very close to our hearts.

Each year, CiS hosts an essay competition for students to enter, either individually, in pairs or as a group. Topics are provided, entries are submitted over the summer and judged in early autumn. The essay competition is designed to encourage promising young thinkers and writers to explore different science-faith topics.

Entrants should be enrolled on a course at a Higher Education institution for the academic year 2023-2024, in their first undergraduate or postgraduate course of study. Entries under any other circumstance will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
