Christian musician challenges Norfolk pupils

Chip Kendall and Galactus JackA multimedia event developed by Christian singer-songwriter and rapper Chip Kendall will be challenging pupils in Kings Lynn and Harleston this week with the question ‘Does God love science?’

Test of FAITH:Live developed by Manchester based musician Chip Kendall, formerly of thebandwithnoname, alongside Cambridge based scientist Dr Ruth Bancewicz, will be visiting secondary schools in Kings Lynn and Harleston from Monday 8th – Thursday 11th October

Test of FAITH:Live aims to help young people look at the relationship between faith and science. 
Chip Kendall said: “Many teenagers say to me, “Science has disproved God”, so it’s great to be able to bring in working scientists who also have a faith and get everyone discussing those issues.” 
Dr Ruth Bancewiz said: “Often people assume that faith and science are at war with each other, but actually nearly all the early scientists were Christians and for me, science is about learning about the amazing creation God has made for us.”
Chip Kendall and his DJ Galactus Jack (both pictured) will bring music and dance to the sessions as well as getting involved in the experiments and discussions.  
Mark Heybourne from the Diocese of Norwich, which has helped to arrange the events in the region, said: “The fact that there is the beauty of science for us to discover and help us make sense of the life is an argument for God and it is important young people hear this debate to help them make up their own minds. I look forward to seeing how Norfolk young people respond to the discussions"
