ENGAGE 2017 Gender and Sexuality

Enagage 2017

The sexual revolution of the 1960s has given way to a hyper-sexualised society, in which non-heterosexuality and transgender are part of everyday conversation. Christians and churches have often struggled to join those conversations and feel bewildered about how best to respond to questions like:

  • What do we do when a teenager in our youth group seeks a sex change?
  • What would we do when a married lesbian couple start attending church with their jointly adopted children?
  • How does the church respond to the charge of homophobia?

 

Engage 2017 is an event for Christians who are seeking a biblical approach to such practical questions. It will provide teaching and testimonies that enable you to explore your own response, with the goal that future non-heterosexual visitors to our churches would say that their experience of us was like having met Christ himself.

Subjects covered will include:

  • Pastoral responses to gender dysphoria
  • Discipling and sexuality
  • Training the next generation

 

Booking will open in August 2017. To register interest and to receive notification of when bookings open, please sign up here.
