Forming a Christian Mind 2018

Forming a Christian Mind (FACM) explores how the Christian faith interacts with personal and academic development. It aims to help postgraduates and post-docs to develop their capacity to think biblically about their discipline and address the tensions between secular and Christian perspectives on their subject, both in the university and in wider society. It is open to academics across the sciences, arts and humanities, demonstrating how Christian worldview is vital to every area of study.

FACM is a movement in Cambridge constituting a partnership between the Jubilee Centre, Christian Heritage, and KLICE and generous involvement from other local ministries including the Christian Graduate Society and UCCF.

The event is primarily for postgraduates, post-docs and junior academics; however anyone who is pursuing an academic career in other ways is welcome.
