The James Gregory lectures are a series of 12 public
lectures by eminent national and international speakers
held at the University of St Andrews over a 4-year
period on a wide range of contemporary issues in Science
and Religion. All the lectures are open for all without
tickets or registering.
“The basic aim is to encourage constructive and open
dialogue and an exchange of ideas on many intriguing points
of contact between Science and Religion. At this time of a
rise of unhealthy fundamentalism, there is a need to increase
understanding, so that we may be better informed about the
nature of the scientific enterprise and of religious thought.
Both Science and Religion have key insights about our human
nature, our creativity and our possible future.

Fellowship Group: “The cross is the most famous symbol of Christianity.
We have one on the outside of our church, at the front when we
worship, and some wear a cross as jewelry. But why did Jesus
die on the cross? Was it a cruel miscarriage of justice,
the execution of a dangerous rebel or something more?
Join us at fellowship group as we look at the meaning of
the cross. All are welcome. (If you need a lift let Tom
P know and one can be arranged.)”
