What’s it all about?

Big Questions – Any Answers?’ is a series of talks arranged for the Tyne Valley area, in which leading scientists who are Christians tackle some of the big scientific issues of today and what the Christian faith has to say about them.

Generous funding from an international charity means that we can attract world-recognized experts as speakers and hold the talks in convenient venues around the area, while making all the events completely free for anyone to attend.  This is a rare opportunity, not to be missed. 

The talks are intended for a general audience.  No scientific expertise or training is needed, and no particular attitude to religion is assumed.  Everyone is welcome, whatever your background, and there are opportunities for questions and discussion. 

The first series of 5 talks took place on weekday evenings between Easter and the school summer holidays, and featured scientists from Cambridge and Newcastle Universities.  A second series of 4 talks is now in place for September–November after the school holidays.  Posters for both series are shown below.  Further details can be found on the “Next Event” and “Previous Events” pages, including audio recordings and presentation slides from previous talks.

Join us for an exploration of some of these Big Questions, and see if we can provide Any Answers to satisfy you.  We’re sure you’ll find it interesting and informative, and maybe even challenging and inspiring!
