Scientists in Congregations

How do we raise fresh awareness of the significance of the science-theology conversation in the lives of church congregations – big, small, all-age, rural, urban, student, cathedral and hospital? How do we raise the profile of the locally based science professional in his or her local church? The ‘Scientists in Congregations’ scheme provides a year of funding for new project proposals which seek to do just that. 

We are delighted to announce that the following projects have been funded by our ‘Scientists in Congregations’ awards scheme:
