1. What is the “Scientists in Congregations Scotland” Grant?
Scientists in Congregations Scotland is a new grant programme, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, that seeks to encourage a deeper level of conversation about faith and science in churches throughout Scotland.
To do so, the programme is looking for congregations in which there are one or more scientists who participate faithfully in church life and who are also vocationally engaged with the scientific world. It is our understanding that there are many scientists in churches across Scotland who have spent a great deal of time thinking about the integration of science and faith.
Through around fifteen grants of up to £10,000, this programme will help to support scientists and ministers to work together to develop projects that can communicate the important ways in which faith and science can be seen to relate to one another.
