Aim of Course
This Faraday Institute short workshop is designed for church leaders, lay or ordained, and those in training. Come and explore a wide range of science and faith issues and think about their relevance in the context of the local church. A team of leading speakers will address key scientific areas such as cosmology, evolutionary biology, genetics, ecology and neuroscience. There will be plenty of opportunity for group discussion as well as input on practical and pastoral application and examples of imaginative church resources. The course will run from 9.30 am Weds 11 Jan 2017 to 5pm Thurs 12 Jan 2017 and there will be no evening sessions. Tea, coffee and a sandwich lunch on both days are included in the registration price. NB delegates will be responsible for their overnight accommodation and evening meals. There are many places to eat within walking distance and a list of accommodation will be provided on request.
