BRF Messy Church’s new project ‘Messy Church Does Science’ brings together faith and science under the safety-spectacled eye of ‘Dr Dave’ to show how ‘science is welcome in church’ ‘and those who are fascinated by science are welcome too’.
With a grant awarded by Scientists in Congregations, Messy Church has been able to develop resources, including a book to explore the ‘big thinking’ and ‘big questions’ link between science and faith and has included help from working scientists and theologians.
Messy Churches are hot on discovery, experimentation and exploration; could we encourage even more Messy Church groups to feel confident about using science in the activity time, so that families would understand that the Church celebrates science and rejoices in it?
Lucy Moore, founder of Messy Church
…science is fun, a gift from God that brings joy to life, helping us to appreciate his life and love all the more. All of us want to share that sense with others, helping them to enjoy the wonder that science reveals all about the world and ourselves, and through it something of the God of life who lies behind it.
