'God is most certainly not threatened by science; he made it all possible' 
Dr Francis Collins, former Director of the Human Genome Project

During this year's Science Week, join us for a conversation about the sometimes turbulent interaction of science and faith. Has science disproved God? Can they coexist? How do working scientists make sense of this 'conflict'? 

On the evening, astronomer Dr Luke Barnes will give a short address followed by a time for Q+A. This event is for the sceptically minded, the scientifically curious and the believer who likes to wrestle with questions of science and belief. Everyone is welcome.


Monday 13 Aug (during Science Week)
7.45 for snacks
8pm start

At St Luke's, Clovelly
Corner Arden St and Varna St, Clovelly (location)
