February 2021 – Summer 2022

In a recent survey, 30% of non-Christians and 10% of Christians in the UK thought the church was ‘not compatible with science’. We want to help your church change this perception by engaging with science, addressing subjects that are relevant to society today.

We are offering bursaries for UK National or Regional leaders within Christian denominations, or equivalent networks of churches – essentially, for leaders of leaders. These awards will cover some or all of the cost of coming on one of our short course (1-2 days) or our longer summer course (5 days). The aim is to equip you personally, as well as helping you get to know us and find out how we can resource you and your network.

There are two levels of bursary (decided on a case by case basis)

  1. The student or ministry trainee rate for any of our courses (online)
  2. We have several bursaries to cover the full cost of the 2022 summer course (in person, including travel and accommodation)

Applications will be dealt with on a first come first served basis, with a closing date of 28th February 2022.

For further details, or to apply, contact our Church Engagement Director Ruth Bancewicz at ruthb@faraday.cam.ac.uk.

In addition to this bursary scheme, we are of course happy to hear from denominational or network staff at any time. For example, we can advise on particular topics, recommend resources or speakers, or organise an in-house training session.
