who we are
Christians in Science is an international network of those concerned with the relationship between science and Christian faith, open to scientists, teachers, students and all those with an interest in this dialogue. The common misperception that there is always conflict between science and faith can be abused by those with anti-Christian or anti-science agendas. In reality science has always been the domain of many committed Christians and CiS exists to support such Christians.
CiS South West is a local group established in 2005 by a group of like-minded Christians and runs events about twice a year. Our aim is to connect and support anyone with an interest in science and faith in Devon and Cornwall. Our local committee members are available to speak or preach on a variety of science-faith topics. We can be contacted via email.
