'Faith and Thought' is the working name of the Victoria Institute.
Since 1865, this has been a forum for those who wish to hold together Christian faith and advances in scientific knowledge. We seek to communicate these issues to the non-specialist.
We publish two journals. Faith&Thought seeks to convey to non-specialists the pastoral and ethical implications of advances in science. It also contains the text of lectures in our Annual Symposium.
A full archive of back issues of Faith & Thought (and earlier publications of The Victoria Institute) are available online at BiblicalStudies.org.uk
Science and Christian Belief is published jointly with Christians in Science.
Officers must be evangelical Christians, but membership is open to those of all faiths or none.
