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 upcoming science-faith events. We aim to include as many details here as early as possible. Local CSCA chapter events are listed here with a teal background. Events that officially apply to multiple CSCA chapters (nearby or not) are in orange. Online ASA local chapter events, including live-streams, are in blue. As a courtesy, we also occasionally list non-CSCA events of interest in grey. Missing infomation (e.g. time, location) means that these details are still TBA. If you would like to submit something to be listed here, please contact our Digital Media and Communications Specialist.
