Why start a Christians in Science student group?
At Christians in Science we have a passion to see Christians at university engaging whole-heartedly with both their scientific studies and with their faith. Being a Christian in the sciences can be a lonely and isolating place, both at church and in the lab, so we want to encourage you to create community to support one another. CiS student groups should be places where you can question honestly, discuss openly, support lovingly and include indiscriminately. University has the potential to be a time when your faith is tested harshly academically and practically, perhaps for the first time, and the supportive environment of a group of students in similar situations can be the saving grace in those times.
How can I start a new student group?
Get in touch! Christians in Science are here to help you organise your first launch event and give suggestions and support for further events. We can also provide reading resources and freebies to give out at the event. Groups don’t have to be a huge time commitment, some of our student groups meet once or twice a term to discuss a particular science-faith topic, but by creating and running a group you will be bringing a whole network of support and resources to many people who may otherwise not have found it.
