Curious Minds - Religion and Science special lecture series

How do faith and science co-exist? How was the universe created? Come and explore some of the biggest questions of time and space at a special series of guest lectures by leading experts. 

This series of prestigiously lectures will take place in the Nave of the Cathedral.  The lecturers, drawn from a range of academic backgrounds, will engage the audience with some of the most important questions relating to how science can help us understand and expand our knowledge of our place within this universe. The lecturers will also engage with the implications of the science on faith and exploring how science and theology are not in opposition to each other but are in the business of entering into common dialogue about some the most basic questions we ask as human beings.  The first four of the lectures will poignantly take place on the ‘Moon Floor’.

The lectures will be begin at 19.30 and include time for Q & A (finishing at 21.00).
