January 2014 and an exciting possibility. The idea of organizing a ‘Science Weekend’ in our two churches has moved on apace. The theme will be 'To celebrate the wonders of creation revealed by science' . To help us with our explorations, we will have addresses by a Consultant Neurologist from Addenbrookes on the human brain and an Astronomer/ Educationist on the glory of the Universe.
This will be within the framework of the morning service at Landbeach (6miles north of Cambridge UK) in March where the pattern has been, that on the third Sunday of each month the service is followed by coffee and a discussion group. It promises well.
Just a little later, that same morning, there will be a Family/All age service in St John’s Waterbeach with the same theme - but presented in a way that will be more accessible for children.
Children’s science-based activities will also take place on the Saturday of the weekend.
I am very grateful to Ruth Banciewicz (See Ruth's blog here) of The The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion for her help in finding us an astronomer and guiding us to the material that has been developed within the Institute for just such a service.
There will be more on the blog about this weekend and if you should be interested in knowing more, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
