Time for Action

The crucial third reading of the Assisted Dying Bill is expected before the 2024 Summer recess.  Please write now to your MHKs to say that they should vote against the Bill. Even if you only have time for a very brief email, that would be hugely helpful.

If you would some ideas on what you could write, please see our Call to Action Briefing.

Alternatively, if you would like to see an analysis of specific problems with the Bill, here's a helpful briefing from Right to Life.

You can find email addresses for your MHKs here.

Get Active

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the Government consultation on Assisted Dying. 

The Consultation Bias Report highlights several concerns with the wording of the consultation. You could make these concerns known to your MHKs.

Get Prayerful

Prayer is powerful, so we are calling on God's people across the Island to seek Him regularly and persistently on this matter. 

So far, we have two opportunities to pray with other Christians:

  • Every Tuesday morning, 8am to 8.30am, at the Well, Broadway (next door down from Broadway Baptist Church, Douglas).

If you sign up to our mailing list below, you will receive weekly prayer pointers, which can be used in your private prayers, and will also form the basis of the weekly prayer gatherings.

Some people have committed to fasting each Tuesday as part of humbling ourselves and seeking God on this matter. We would be delighted if others sense and respond to God's invitation to do the same.

"The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective" (The Bible: James 5:16 - NRSV)
