Living Out - Southampton
Living Out wants to help churches understand how we can better help those who experience same-sex attraction to stay faithful to Biblical teaching on sexual ethics and flourish at the same time. On our LOCAL (Living Out Churches And Leaders) Course we will show you why many churches fail – but how the Bible wonderfully meets the challenges we all face.
The course will offer a positive biblical vision and practical steps forward as we seek to model both grace and truth in our Christ-like love for all those who experience same-sex attraction.
The Living Out team will share their insight and stories as same-sex attracted Christians who hold to traditional Bible teaching on sexual ethics and who have spoken and written on this subject widely.
Living Out is delighted to be bringing you this day of training in association with the Southampton Christian Network and the Evangelical Alliance. We ask that all who attend assent to the Evangelical Alliance Basis of Faith and understand that while there are opportunities on the day to ask questions about what the Bible teaches in this area, those speaking are committed to the Evangelical Alliance's biblical and pastoral position with respect to homosexuality, summarised in these affirmations. The focus of the day will be how we can uphold these truths and love and serve same-sex attracted people in our churches and society.
