Understanding and Addressing Atheism – St. Andrew’s, Ajax, June 23-24

Understanding and Answering Atheism Event at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Ajax

Understanding and Answering AtheismIs religion dangerous? Is Christianity intolerant? Does God exist, and is He worth following? How do I share my faith in a culture where belief in God is dismissed as anti-intellectual and ridiculous?

Professor Stephen Hawking once said that heaven is a “fairy story for those afraid of the dark.” Is he correct or is there good reason for what Christians believe?

Understanding and Answering Atheism is a conference designed for students, families, small groups, churches, and anyone interested in the rising challenge of atheism to the Christian worldview.

Whether you’re a questioning skeptic or an interested Christian, join us as we listen to Ravi Zacharias, Abdu Murray, Vince Vitale, and other members of this RZIM team in the conference, speak live in “Understanding and Answering Atheism.”

This is a 2-day event that St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 35 Church Street North, Ajax will live stream in its sanctuary.
