The Faraday Institute will hold the fifth annual reception on Monday 28th November 2016 starting from 6.00 p.m. in Emmanuel United Reformed Church. The invitation is for all in the Cambridge area who self-identify as scientists (from graduate students to FRSs and Nobel prize-winners) and who also self-identify as Christians.

This year's speaker will be Prof. Russell Cowburn, FRS, Director of Research for the Department of Physics and the founder of two start-up companies and the inventor of the anti-counterfeiting technology 'Laser Surface Authentication'.

The purpose of the free event is to provide a convivial opportunity to meet other Christians in the Cambridge scientific community, to hear a short talk by a well-known local speaker, and to spend some time in disciplinary discussion groups.

There will be an extensive book-stall relating to science and religion.
