Value of Life

The sanctity of human life cuts to the heart of what we as Christians are concerned with. 

As those made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27), we aim to shed light on issues of public policy which directly impact upon this truth.

There are numerous challenges facing us in a culture in which medical advances are constant and a desire for autonomy and championing of individualism take the place of togetherness and dependence upon one another.

We engage on issues at the beginning of life such as abortion; issues at the end of life such as assisted suicide, euthanasia and palliative care; and issues impacting all of life now and for the future as we consider bioethics and embryology.

We are precious in God’s sight – we are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ and have been ‘knit together’ by God who ‘saw our unformed bodies’ and ‘ordains our days’ (Psalm 139: 13-16).  It therefore matters greatly what we say and do with our bodies and how we defend and protect life around us.

' For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made... '

Psalm 139: 13 & 14
