News

We have a great set of events shaping up for this fall! We're kicking it off on September 21 with a stream from an event at our Toronto chapter, with a response from an TWU faculty panel. Guest speakers later this fall will include Stephen Snobelen, Barth Netterfield, Chris Barrigar, and Barry Pointon. Stay tuned for specifics, and don't forget to check out the "related events" list in the sidebar for information on other events relating to science and faith!

The Vancouver Area Science & Religion Forum typically holds public lectures and film discussions at TWU, UBC and SFU--as well as the occasional local church venue. Our events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Now and then, we will hold a mid-summer workshop with a prominent scholar in science-and-religion for a small registration fee (discount for CSCA members). Most CSCA members in the province of BC are near Vancouver, and we hope we can be of service to those living elsewhere as well.

Coming Up

Here is a list of events coming up soon for our chapter. We aim to include as many details here as early as possible. Missing infomation (e.g. time, location) means that these details are still TBA.
