Programme

From the Big Bang to Biology with God

8–12 November 2021 (Mon–Fri)

Can real scientists have a religious faith? Are science and faith compatible? Come to Lee Abbey to see how the answer to both questions is Yes.
We will immerse ourselves in the awe-inspiring story of the universe. We will consider the wonders of space, the behaviour of the particles that make up matter, the beautiful complexity of living things and the ways in which they interact. In our discussion of humankind we will ask what it means to be made ‘in the image of God’

Thank you so much for an inspiring and enjoyable stay.
