Faraday Institute Professional Workshop:
Science and Faith in the local church
The second week of January saw The Faraday Institute hold its first professional workshop for ordained and lay leaders in the church. Across denominations 70 people attended the 2 days exploring how science and faith work in the local church. As well as those more local to Cambridgeshire, participants came from across the UK as far afield as Bristol and Durham and internationally from the US, Spain and Brazil. A great range of topics were discussed including; pastoral issues relating to mental health and life and death, how to work with science and religion with children and young people and how we can care for our environmental concerns. An enjoyable time was had with opportunities to network and to bring back the information gained to their local churches. The Faraday Institute hopes to put on another similar professional workshop in the future so keep in touch via our website.
