Bids open today, August 30th, for the innovative ‘Scientists in Congregations’ scheme. We are inviting churches across England to apply for grants of up to £10,000 to fund projects fostering a better understanding of the interrelationship of science and religion.
This scheme is designed to bring the conversation about science and theology into the learning and worshipping lives of congregations. We are looking for creative and context-friendly proposals that could be valuable for large or small congregations, all-age or for specific groups, in rural as well as urban areas as well as groups of churches.
‘Scientists in Congregations’ England is not only designed to equip church members better to engage with today’s big religion-science questions, we also envisage many projects having a wider reach to those in the surrounding community who do not usually attend church.
