Scientists in Congregations

Grace Church is one of only eight centres in the country to be awarded a grant from a new national initiative called Scientists in Congregations. 

The purpose of the grant is to facilitate projects that promote scientific understanding in local congregations and engagement in the dialogue between the Christian faith and Science. This resonates deeply with one of our convictions that faith in Christ connects with every area of life.
Phase one of Grace Church’s project involves running a series of interviews on Sunday mornings with members of the congregation who are working in science-based disciplines. The money from the grant will then be used to produce high-quality videos featuring those same individuals which will be included in a new church website to be launched in spring 2017.
The Scientists in Congregations initiative is part of a larger project called Christian Leadership in an Age of Science based at St John’s College Durham, which exists to enthuse and connect leaders in the UK who are committed to changing the faith-science climate.
If our project at Grace Church contributes towards that end in some small way, then we’ll be thrilled. We would love to hear from anybody who is interested in finding out more, whatever their faith background.
