Our extra-mural activities commenced in Autumn 2016 with an address by Dr Denis Alexander of the Faraday Institute to a large audience in a public venue. This was followed up at the same venue with: The Star of Bethlehem – Myth or Reality? Both of these presentations were professionally filmed and are now available on YouTube1, 2. A further event at this venue was held in May 2017 with David Hughes of A Rocha. From February – June 2017 we had eight open events on science and philosophy held at Costa Coffee in Wilmslow. These were popular with Church members and many outsiders. Topics ranged from artificial intelligence – with the world-leading computer scientist Steve Furber FRS – to genetics, drug-design, fine-tuning, the design argument and the laws of physics. An ecumenical day conference on science/faith will be held for Chester Diocese on November 4th, 2017.
