Thank you for giving towards the work of Christians in Science (CiS).
Why should you give?
Christians in Science is a network of scientists and others interested in the dialogue of science and religion and who accept mainstream science and the Bible as complementary.
Science and religious faith are two of the most powerful influences on our culture today. The relationship between them is key to some of the big questions of life, but many think that science conflicts with belief in God or see science as a threat to faith. By contrast, at Christians in Science (CiS) we believe that science actually enhances our faith in God and there is no conflict between Christian faith and science.
Many of the pioneering figures in science believed in God and this tradition continues today. CiS encourages trust in science as God’s gift to help us care for each other and the environment. As a member of the Evangelical Alliance, CiS supports the faith of Christians working in science research and teaching as well as scientists in churches. By helping the Church present its message, CiS is a church’s partner in mission to a sceptical world.
All of the activities listed below need to be funded, and as our work expands so will the costs. Our increased expenditure will need to be funded by subscriptions and donations from our membership and others who catch a vision for the importance of the work we are seeking to do.
How will your donation help?
CiS has produced a range of resources to equip Christians on 'Big Issues' surrounding science and faith. These resources include a series of easy to read booklets called 'Thinking about..' for the general public with topics like Miracles, Creation Care and Bioethics. 'Being a Christian in...' is a series for university students studying various subjects from Biochemistry to Engineering and Maths. View these booklets and many of our other resources.
CiS also has a number of local groups spread across the UK which regularly run events for CiS members and the church community. CiS has developed ways to help students and early career scientists who are Christians to maintain and grow their faith whilst engaging effectively with emerging areas at the interface of science and religion. To this end, we have established CiS student groups in the major university cities.
We run a mentoring scheme for early career scientists that will offer to link them up with a mature Christian scientist in their location to guide and encourage them. We also provide bursaries for students and early career scientists to attend appropriate workshops and conferences that provide in depth teaching and training on science and faith. It is such people who will become the next generation of Christians in the sciences including those who will become the future writers, speakers and policy makers that engage with emerging areas at the interface of science and religion.
Your donation will help us help Christians to continue and develop this important work.
