FREE WORKSHOP – Opening Up the Bible with Science (with Lesley Gray)
Monday 19th October 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree – £20
Join us in our ‘Opening Up the Bible with Science’ workshop!
Please note, this session is for adults only
Did you know you can tell the story of Genesis to Pentecost using Science experiments? Shake up your Bible stories with fun and engaging Science experiments. It’s amazing the things you can do with a few simple objects and chemicals, which will wow your church and mean they don’t forget Bible stories in a hurry. Perfect for using in online services and video content too! If you wanted to join in live with Lesley for part of the workshop please have ready a kitchen towel, pens and a dish/saucer with some water in.
Dr Lesley Gray completed her PhD in Physical Biochemistry, at the National Institute for Medical Research in 2015, where she studied the replication of DNA in antibiotic resistant bacteria, here she became interested in Science and Faith communication. A youth worker at heart, Lesley trained as a Science teacher in 2016 and now teachers Science to 8-18 year olds, also running the school Christian Union. She is passionate about getting the church to use science to creatively communicate the Gospel and help to answer some of the Big Questions we have about life. She is a Girls’ Brigade Officer, a presenter with the travelling God and the Big Bang Project, a resource writer for Youth for Christ and enjoys sharing her faith (and science) with young people at Spring Harvest and New Wine. She wrote part of the new “Messy Church Does Science” book and is excited to see people young and old enjoying science and exploring their faith. Lesley lives in Hertfordshire with her husband Antony (he is the reason she now likes puppets), where they enjoy baking, singing and the great outdoors.
