CiS South West is a local group that aims to connect and support anyone with an interest in science and faith in Devon and Cornwall. Our aim is to connect and support anyone with an interest in science and faith in Devon and Cornwall.

Christians in Science (CiS) is an international network of those concerned with the relationship between science and Christian faith, open to scientists, teachers, students and all those with an interest in this dialogue. The common misperception that there is always conflict between science and faith can be abused by those with anti-Christian or anti-science agendas. In reality science has always been the domain of many committed Christians and CiS exists to support such Christians.
