'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 and the winning essay of our prize essay competition. A few back issues are available to order here .

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.
