ABOUT SFN

The aim of the group 'Science and Faith in Norfolk' is to explore the relationship between Science and Faith from a Christian perspective.

The group is mainly, but not exclusively, made up of professional scientists living and working in Norfolk.  It includes a number of clergy.  The group is supported by the Bishop of Norwich.

This ecumenical group seeks to support and encourage its members through open and respectful discussion of subjects at the interface between science and faith.

SFN engages with members of the public through open meetings on science faith issues at the Meeting Place (Holy Trinity Church, NR2 2BJ) and its Annual Cathedral Lecture - given by a well known scientist or theologian on a topical subject.

The group is affiliated to Christians in Sciencehttp://www.bristolnetworks.org.uk/Images/content/1462/485021.jpg
