*Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the event will be rescheduled for the autumn of 2020. More details to come.* Stand for Life: Belfast represents an urgent international gathering of Christians who care deeply about the issue of life and who are grieving over the cultural change that has occurred. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, in connection with Evangelical Alliance and Both Lives Matter, have joined together to gather concerned Christians to answer these important questions: Are Christians in Northern Ireland prepared to live and minister in this culture with new abortion regulations? Are churches equipped to be a voice of truth and demonstrate the compassion of Jesus in the midst of this looming crisis? Bringing together Christians from across these islands, we will seek to equip churches with how to build an all-encompassing pro-life ministry and demonstrate how to care for the mothers and families affected by abortion and its aftermath. This unique moment in time will serve as the catalyst for launching a powerful pro-life movement that carries the light of the gospel forward in the midst of one of the darkest moments in Northern Irish history.
