‘Does science disprove God?’
‘Can the Bible be true if it doesn’t mention dinosaurs?’
‘Could robots or aliens be religious?’
‘What really makes me ‘me’?’
Do these questions excite you? Or does the idea of responding to questions like these from young people leave you nervous? Over the last seven and a half years, The Faraday Institute’s Youth and Schools Programme have often encountered these and many other big questions while helping over 23,000 young people explore their science-faith questions.
Join the team as they use their experience to help youth workers grow in confidence, skill, and inspiration to support young people exploring wholehearted faith in a scientific world.
The day will be packed full of practical ideas for exploring science-faith topics in a variety of youth work contexts, including: how to get hands-on with interactive activities; gentle consideration of how to handle difficult or controversial topics; the chance to voice your own big questions; and a celebration of the unique role of youth workers in encouraging young people in this area.
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to learn more about equipping young people to engage wisely and confidently with our world’s big questions of science and religious faith.
‘Blue tea, exploding canisters, dancing raisins and crunchy crickets!! If that doesn’t grip your attention, then I don’t know what will! The excellently provided training gave our team the space to see how belief and science can sit side by side.’ – Recent training participant
