The School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews is excited to announce a major new programme that aims to encourage deeper conversations about faith and science within churches in Scotland. Led by Dr Andrew Torrance and directed by Professor Ivor Davidson, “Scientists in Congregations, Scotland” is funded by an award of over £500,000 from the John Templeton Foundation.
The purpose of this programme will be to explore the interface of contemporary faith and science, and seek to foster a better-informed conversation between scientists, clergy and congregations. To do so it is calling for churches across Scotland, from a range of denominations, to propose (just under) two-year projects that will excite and facilitate constructive engagement between the church and the scientific world. The programme will be awarding around 15 grants of up to £10,000.
