Many churches see science as the enemy - a challenge to belief in God.  
But what if science and religion were not opposites at all? Instead - what if they needed each other? 
The man who asked THOSE questions is Revd Professor David Wilkinson - Theologian, Physicist and current Principal of St John's College, Durham, and he's coming to the Island next weekend.
In this programme, Rev'd Steve Ingrouille, Methodist Minister based in Onchan, who studied under Professor Wilkinson and invited him to the Island, shares some of his own thoughts and experiences regarding science and religion - and we hear from Revd Professor Wilkinson himself.
Details of his programme on the Isle of Man are as follows :-

Friday 27 January - Evening at IOM Observatory with Revd Professor David Wilkinson
"The Big Bang,  Hawking and the Multiverse"
Call/Text  Gary on 07624 496672 or email stars@manx.net to reserve your place

Saturday 28 January - Island Spirituality Network
St John's Mill - from 10am to 1pm

Revd Professor Wilkinson is guest speaker, and has chosen the title for this morning 
"Wonder, Wisdom and Worship - God's gift of science"

Saturday 28 January - Onchan Methodist Church - 6.30pm
David  will share his testimony, speaking about how he holds science and faith together with integrity in his life.  This evening starts with a bring and share supper.  There'll be an opportunity for a Q&A session with David and - weather permitting - the evening will also include some stargazing outside the church.

Second guest on the programme is Richard Littledale, talking about the retreat he'll be leading at Thie Dy Vea, our residential retreat house in Peel.  It's from the 10th to the 12th February and it's called "Not Without Hope" - a refuge on the way of grief - and it's intended for anyone who has been bereaved - either recently or at some time in the past.  Listen as Richard himself explains what he's offering, and why he's offering it to anyone and everyone ....
