The 2024 Online Conference Series is inspired by Key Themes from Arthur Peacocke's Work in what would have been his 100th year. Delegates are invited critically to re-engage with these themes from multi-faith perspectives and examine how they interact with the scientific, technological, and environmental challenges and opportunities posed by the 21st Century.

The conference will explore and challenge key themes around divine action, causality, and science including:

•Forces, causality, and Divine Action

•God’s interaction and communication with the world

•Divine Action, the Causal Joint, and consciousness

•Laws of nature, ecology, and divine action

•Creation, co-creation, and continuous creation

This event will be updated with speaker and programme details as they become available.
