Over the Easter vacation, we gather with the wider church for an action-packed week of Bible teaching, worship and enjoying being God's people together.

Science Network Track
The Science Network seminar track at Word Alive is all about equipping you to understand science within a gospel framework and addressing key questions that arise when we allow science and theology to interact. This year, we'll be partnering with the Theology Network to welcome Professor David Wilkinson, Principal of St John's College, Durham, to unpack the theme of 'Christ and the Cosmos'.
Too often, the dialogue between science and theology stops at arguments about Genesis. In all the controversy over the when and how, we find ourselves missing out on the who. Christ, the one who holds the cosmos together, is at the heart of the Bible’s teaching on creation. What difference does this make as we live in, explore, and shape the natural world?
Prof. Wilkinson has PhDs in both theoretical astrophysics and systematic theology, and his work explores the relationship of Christian theology to contemporary culture. He's written on topics such as science and religion, apologetics, and even Star Wars!
Here's a clip where he shares a bit more about what you can expect from the track:
Join us at Word Alive!
Students can attend as part of a group from your CU, making the most of student-specific teaching tracks and time with a smaller Impact Group to pray and chat about what you're learning during the week. A limited amount of discounted accommodation is available on-site for CU groups to book. Find out more here.
Talk to your Staff Worker about coming to Word Alive with your CU!
We don't want money to be a barrier to people receiving this training and teaching, so bursaries are available for students attending the Science Network track.
