New round of Scientists in Congregations for 2022-23
ECLAS is launching a new round of Scientists in Congregations grants for the coming year.
From today, churches can apply for grants worth £10,000 to engage with scientific topics and affirm the role of scientists within their communities.
The Scientists in Congregations programme has 10 grants available worth up to £10,000 each. Applications are open to churches in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, of any Christian denomination. Grants could support events such as exhibitions, public talks, school engagement, or online activities which explore themes around science and faith.
This will be the fifth round of Scientists in Congregations. The most recent round launched last year and has so far funded events such as art installations, a theatre production, and a podcast.
Revd Prof David Wilkinson, ECLAS Co-Director, said: “Through our Scientists in Congregations programme we want to affirm and celebrate the vocation of scientists. These grants will enable churches to create spaces to ask questions, engage with exciting or emerging scientific issues, and benefit from the knowledge and experience of scientists in their communities. We are particularly looking in this round for proposals from a wide range of Christian denominations.”
Applications are open from Wednesday 2 March until Sunday 2 May, and interested applicants can get in touch for an informal chat during that time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
