Faith To Live By service
On the evening of Sunday 12th October at 6.30pm we will be pleased to welcome at the Methodist Church our guest speaker Baroness Kathleen Richardson and her title is ‘Is there a Christian case for assisted dying?’ She will talk about the bill on this topic currently being discussed in the House of Lords. There will be a short time or worship, an address, refreshments and discussion. Everyone welcome.
Is the Bill to legalise assisted dying consistent with theological understanding and pastoral experience? Is life a gift or a loan? When Ecclesiastes says there is a time to be born and a time to die – is it God who determines that time? Kathleen is a Member of the House of Lords and is currently considering the Assisted Dying Bill. She is a Methodist Minister, a former President of the Methodist Conference (1992-3), a former President of Churches Together in England (1995-99) and is a former Moderator of the Churches Commission for Inter Faith Relations.
