Chill Out Zone

Got questions about Faith and Science? Come and join in the conversations with experienced Christian scientists. 

1.30 // WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF YOU? 

Does life simply need the right conditions – or is there more to it?
Would you play a game with a one-in-a-billion chance and expect to win? The universe seems perfectly balanced to produce life. Even a slight deviation in its makeup would make it impossible. Science can describe this, but can it explain why?


2.30 // WOULD YOU TRUST A HUMPBACK WHALE?

Are we just improved animals? Or is there something truly special about humans?
The Bible tells us that humans are different from other animals. We’re made in God’s image. We have moral law, free will and stewardship over the earth and it’s creatures. From a science perspective, the separation between animals and humans seems to be shrinking with each discovery. Animals have demonstrated basic tool use, basic language and perhaps altruism. 


3.30 // WHO ARE YOU?

Are we more than the sum of our parts? Is the incredible human body a vehicle for something separate and eternal?
The human body is an extraordinary machine, running on chemical reactions and electrical impulses. The brain is the most complex computer system known to exist, but are we more than an incredible machine? Is the soul real or just an illusion?


4.00 // THE CONVERSATION

Come along and ask your big questions about life, faith and spirituality to a live panel including Senior Pastors as well as a voice from your generation.
