God & the Big Bang: 

Understanding Science & Faith, an evening at Guildford Cathedral

Wednesday 4 July 2018, 7-9pm

For the last three years God and the Big Bang (GATBB) has run workshops around the country, offering an exciting opportunity to discover, discuss and debate the compatibility of science and faith. GATBB aims to equip people with the all-important tools they need in order to form their own opinions and engage in rational, exciting, well-reasoned and thought-provoking discussion about the place for science in God’s world – and God in the world of science.

After a highly successful event at Guildford Cathedral in January, the GATBB team will be returning to Guildford on Wednesday 4 July for an engaging evening event on science and faith. Offering a keynote talk, discussions with our team of science-faith communicators, and a Q&A session, the event will include going back to the Big Bang, trying out mind boggling illusions with a science magician, and exploring how Artificial Intelligence shapes our world today.

The Cathedral looks forward to welcoming Dr Matt Pritchard, a science magician and Curator of Wonder as the keynote speaker.  As an independent science communicator he performs to over 50,000 people a year and works with organisations like The Royal Institution, The Big Bang Fairs, and the Science Museum Group. Previously Matt conducted atomic physics research at Durham University, where he won the Institute of Physics' Postgraduate lecturer award. He subsequently went on to work within the Education department at Thinktank Science Museum, Birmingham. In addition to this experience, he has spent the last 18 years working as a professional magician and is an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle - one of only 300 people in the world to hold this distinction. He is a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association. In 2015 he was a finalist in the national Speaker Factor competition.

The God and the Big Bang event at Guildford Cathedral will run from 7pm to 9pm on 4th July 2018, and is suitable for anyone with an interest in science, philosophy and magic, particularly those pursuing further studies and interested in the origins of our world.
