About the event

In December 2020, 400 religious leaders from around the world signed a declaration calling for a ‘gay conversion therapy’ ban. Earlier this month, MPs held a debate in Westminster Hall calling for the government to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy.’ However, the question of whether ‘conversion therapy’ has a place in today’s society has been the subject of debate for a number of years.

Mike will explain his perspective on ‘conversion therapy’ and why banning it would have a significantly negative impact on individuals, churches and society as a whole. He will share how therapy helped him move away from unwanted same-sex attraction.
