The Science and Religion Forum (SRF) had its inception in a series of discussions involving scientists, theologians and clergy which took place in Oxford in the early 1970s.  The key figure in the early discussions was Arthur Peacocke who was to become the Forum’s first Chairman, and later a Vice President and then President. 

Today, SRF exists to promote discussion between scientific understanding and religious thought on issues at the interface of science and religion, and membership is open to people of any religion or none.



Join us!

The Science and Religion Forum is open to anybody with an academic or personal interest in the discussion between science and religion. It is open to those of all faiths and none.


The Forum publishes its outputs through our journal 'Reviews'. We also work with leading journals just as Zygon to publish selected keynote and short papers from our annual conferences.

Members can subscribe to the journal 'Science and Christian Belief' at a reduced rate via our shop.


We run a full three day conference in "odd" years. This conference is hybrid with the majority of delegates joining on site. All members receive a discounted registration to this main hybrid conference.

In "even" years we run one or more 24hour online conferences. Student members are able to access the online conferences for free as part of their membership.
