CAKE is the network for UK-based science-Christianity public engagement people and organisations.
Each group listed below has their own speciality and flavour, but we work together with the aim to provide the Church with excellent quality resources around science to aid discipleship and mission. We meet regularly online for fellowship and support. Cake related chat and eating is not always necessary, but encouraged.
If you would like to join the network please get in touch.
Believing Science has a focus on both Church and community work and seeks to use science to bring the two together.
We provide hands-on science experiences and access to science shows for communities not typically reached by them, especially through our Science Wonder Days programme. We also provide science based teaching and event support for churches.
