Hear two scientists in conversation about their journeying with science and the Christian faith, and how both have shaped their lives.
Suitable for anyone with an interest in this issue, whether you are a scientist or a Christian or neither. There will be opportunity for questions and to meet the speakers.
Revd Dr Dave Gregory. Dave Gregory is President of the Baptist Union, and organiser of “Messy Church Does Science”. He has 15 years’ experience in weather and climate research.
Prof Andrew Steane. Andrew Steane is a professor of physics at the University of Oxford and a pioneer of quantum computing. He has written on faith and science and has many years’ experience in Sunday school teaching.
We welcome you to join this relaxed conversation where you can just sit and listen, taking it all in. Or you can listen and get involved in the Q&A session afterwards. The conversation will be presented in an informal setting at Headington Baptist Church, Oxford.
In our time, science has given us a richer understanding and a greater ability to shape the future, but it does not itself give us the further qualities that we also need, such as wisdom and generosity. This event will attempt to address some of the important questions we have regarding science and our spiritual lives, and how to embrace both without doing damage to either.
We would really appreciate your contact if you plan to join us @ 1pm, before the talk, for a light lunch – Contact us @ https://hbc-oxford.org.uk/contact/ or feel free to just turn up.
