Radio Maria wins grant to explore science and faith

Cambridge-based Radio Maria England has been awarded a grant to look at the relationship between science and faith through the Scientists in Congregations programme.

The programme is run by Equipping Christian Leadership in an Age of Science (ECLAS). Radio Maria England is among one of 22 churches and organisations in England and Wales to receive grants totalling £400,000, to be used over the next 18 months on a creative, public-facing project.

The ECLAS project is led from St John’s College, Durham University, in partnership with the University of York and the Church of England. Its directors include Rev Professor David Wilkinson and physicist Professor Tom McLeish. The grants are funded by the Templeton Religion Trust.

 “We are delighted to be working with churches on such promising projects,” said Professor Wilkinson, “and look forward to seeing how congregations and the communities they serve engage with science and faith in fresh and exciting ways.”

Radio Maria England will be rebroadcasting the first season of Science and Faith on Saturdays at 13:30 and Thursdays at 16:00 through the summer. The show is also available as a podcast.

You can listen to Radio Maria England on  radiomariaengland.uk/how- to-listen-to-us ,on the Radio Maria World Family app for smartphones and tablets and on DAB/DAB+ radio in the Cambridge and London areas. Podcasts are available through Anchor, Spotify, Apple podcasts, Overcast and other podcast providers.
