Scientists in Congregations
Uncategorized September 8, 2016
Grace Church Truro have recently won funding in a scheme aimed at fostering a better understanding of the interrelationship of science and religion.
Grace Church will use the money to fund an exploration of the big questions concerning science and faith through live interviews and high quality videos of church members who work in the sciences.
This project is aimed at combating the view that science and faith are in conflict, and familiarising Christians with the language of the scientific community. It is designed to raise the profile of the science-faith conversation and the importance of Christians contributing to scientific endeavour.
‘Scientists in Congregations’ is a Durham University project run in partnership with the Church of England, and is open to churches in England of all denominations – and the second round of applications is open now. If your church is running, or would like to run, a project seeking to foster a better understanding of the interrelationship of science and religion, you can find out how to apply for funding of up to £10,000 here – deadline: 11th November.
Further information, including details of the other winners in Phase 1 can be found on the Church of England press release.
