INTRODUCTION

Our conferences for senior leaders provide a space for learning and open discussion with the aim of nurturing science-engaged theology.

Our senior leaders’ conferences are open to UK Bishops of any Christian denomination, and the leaders of para-church organisations, by invitation. From the vast galaxies and black holes of cosmology, to neuroscience and discussions of the soul, to the implications of AI on the concept of personhood, our conferences explore cutting-edge questions of science and ethics, featuring some of the world’s leading scientists and theologians.
