2. CASE website forums

We hope that the CASE forum will become a platform for vibrant discussion of topics related to Christian apologetics. Everyone is welcome to participate in CASE forums by becoming a member of the CASE website (no charge involved). To sign up as a member of the CASE website click here. The relevant information about membership is on the second half of that page. (Note: there is a difference between being a CASE Associate (which involves a cost and gives a four-issue subscription to Case magazine, access to Associates-only resources on the website and discounts at CASE events) and a member of the CASE website.) Please also be aware of the forum rules and conditions.

3. Training in medical ethics presentations

Do you have a passion for educating the Christian public on issues in medical ethics? Would you like to see community discussions about bioethics more robust and informed? Do you wish you knew what to say when something like euthanasia comes up in conversation with your friends?

As a follow-up to our medical ethics conference, Dr Megan Best will be conducting training sessions later this year for those who would like to be able to give talks on Christian ethics at the beginning and/or end of life. Two evenings of training will be held at New College, U and are open to all. Registration for each session will include an interactive education session, information regarding ongoing education resources, and a slide presentation on the topic for the registrant’s own use. Email us if you would like to be contacted later in the year with more information.

4. Latest posts on the CASE Blog

In our CASE blog we seek to engage with issues and ideas that are relevant to contemporary life. We welcome your comments and feedback. Our latest blog posts are:

We at CASE hope you will be drawn closer to Jesus this Easter. It is his death and resurrection, which is especially remembered at Easter, that gives CASE as an organisation and, we believe, all people our raison d’etre.
