In May 2018, we hosted a five event series of lectures encompassing many different aspects of Science and Faith.
The series was named after world famous and Nobel-prize winning theoretical physicist Prof Max Planck; an originator of Quantum Theory and a man of both science and faith. 2018 marks the 160th anniversary of his birth and the 100th anniversary of his Nobel Prize for Physics.
