Big world, big questions: Is there space for faith in a scientific world? – with Steph Bryant

Monday 9th October 2023 7:00PM – 7:00PM
Location/Venue: All Saints Church All Saints Road Sidmouth EX10 8ES

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’?

Asking big questions like these, and many others, is an exciting part of being human. From the breath-taking scale of universe and the billions of stars in the night sky, to the amazing diversity of life on earth, science is one really great way to explore the world around us as we consider our big questions. But do we ever need more than science?

Steph Bryant studied Natural Sciences in Cambridge, specialising in evolutionary biology and ecology. Since then, she has been involved in various conservation and communication projects from studying wolves in Bulgaria, to frogs and salmon in Canada, and working with local communities and landowners to reduce human-wildlife conflict. She is now the Youth and Schools Programme Co-Director at The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge. In this role, she loves to spend time with people of all ages and backgrounds, exploring big questions about how science and faith interact – ideally with the help of some explosive science demos!
