Science, Technology & Faith: A Rich Terrain for Church Engagement at Ripon College Cuddesdon, OX44 9EX
Science and technology are central to modern life, and can have profound effects on individuals and society, yet science and technology are rarely addressed directly by the Church. The idea that science and religion are at odds with each other has become widely accepted, creating a potential barrier to mission. The intersection of science, technology and faith thus provides a rich terrain for church engagement in today’s world.
This day conference for lay and ordained church leaders and RE teachers will provide opportunities to hear from experts in the field of science and religion, to take part in workshops on bringing together science, technology and faith in the life of the Church, and to network with others in ministry, all in the beautiful surroundings of the campus of Ripon College Cuddesdon.
Confirmed speakers include Alister McGrath (Oxford University), Jennifer Brown (Science Missioner), Lizzie Henderson (Faraday Institute) and Gillian Straine (Guild of Health & St Rafael)
Cost £15 (includes lunch)
