Amid controversy in church and society, a change in the law on assisted dying is a real possibility in the next few years. The latest issue of Modern Believing offers an in-depth exploration of the theological questions raised.
Modern Church (which publishes Modern Believing) takes no position on assisted dying. We recognise that strongly held views are held with integrity on both sides. We hope that the journal and this event will provide insight into a central issue for our society.
You are invited to join a debate around these issues on Tuesday 2nd June 2015 at 6pm (refreshments on arrival), at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Ave, London WC2H 8EP.
