Friday 23rd April 2021 The Faraday Institute: Engaging With Science

If you’re a Church leader, a Christian working in a science-related profession, or a Christian with a strong interest in learning how to approach scientific questions through biblical lenses, then this event is especially for you!  

This short course will be run in partnership with Keswick Ministries, in their beautiful Lake District location. We hope this will be an in-person event, with speakers delivering their talks remotely but the discussion led in person by Ruth Bancewicz, but that will depend on government guidelines at the time

The aim is to equip Christians to be able to engage faithfully with challenging ethical and scientific questions.

Wednesday 28th April 2021 19:30 - 21:00Open the Box Conversations - Retreat, Refresh, Renew

Open The Box LogoThe pace of current life makes it feel as though we are living 'in the fast lane': a sense of being perpetually busy. As churches go back and children's groups restart, we can easily lose sight of where we are going and what we are meant to be.

This session gives you the chance to step aside from the responsibilities that press on us, in order to renew our vision and replenish our energies. Our session will feature a prayer space or two. All we ask is for you to bring yourselves and a sheet of paper. 90 minutes set apart for retreat and reflection can work wonders! 

You can book a place via Eventbrite.
