    Heriot-Watt University Chaplaincy’s 2021 Annual Public Lecture will be given by Professor Alister McGrath on the topic “SCIENCE, FAITH & THE MEANING OF LIFE: Comparing Richard Dawkins and Albert Einstein.” It will be live-streamed via Microsoft Teams Live on Monday 8 February at 7.30 pm. Professor McGrath is the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion and Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at the University of Oxford, and the lecture will be based on his current unpublished research. We are delighted that he has agreed to join us as part of our bi-centenary celebrations marking the founding of Heriot-Watt’s predecessor institution, the world’s first Mechanics Institute. The lecture is free and open to the public.

    We might not be able to gather in person quite yet, but we’ve discovered how much we can do online! Join us on Tuesday 16th February - 10 am to 12 noon - to hear about some of our amazing partner work at the virtual Gathering.

    We’re delighted to welcome staff from Christian Aid Ethiopia. Netsanet Feleke and Solomon Woldetsadik will speak to us about the impact of climate change, locusts, and conflict on vulnerable communities.

    We’re also excited to find out about new ways of celebrating Christian Aid Week. We’ll hear from supporters who tried new ways of fundraising in 2020. We’ll look forward to COP and think about how we can all be involved in the fight against climate change. And you’ll meet some of the new faces on the Christian Aid Scotland team.

    This will be an interactive session with lots of opportunities to ask questions of our staff and other supporters.

    Please do save the date and invite others to join us.

    Email edinburgh@christian-aid.org to register and receive the joining instructions.
