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, to cover some of the costs of coming on one of our short course (1-2 days) or one of our longer summer courses (5-6 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 the course
  2. 1., plus 50% of cost of travel and accommodation for the January 2022 Church Leaders course (and possibly others, TBC)

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

Applications will be dealt with on a first come first served basis, until February 2022.

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.
