Church leaders

Welcome

Living Out is committed to helping churches to support same-sex attracted Christians and to teach wisely and compassionately on sexuality. There are a number of things that we offer to churches:

  • We have a 10-point audit that leadership teams can work through to assess how well they are doing at being biblically inclusive, as well as highlighting areas to work on.
  • We run the LOCAL training days with a mixture of personal stories, biblical teaching, practical application and Q&A.
  • We have a range of stories, videos and animations that you can download and show in your own church contexts to teach and inspire.
  • We provide resources giving clear teaching on biblical sexuality, rooted in the gospel and framed by God's good creation and ultimate redemption.
  • We provide practical teaching on how to listen well and respond with pastroral sensitivity.
  • We are constantly developing new resources for churches which will appear here.

The Living Out Church Audit

The Church Audit is a tool designed to enable you to assess how biblically inclusive your church is and to make sure it is a community in which same-sex attracted and single Christians can thrive.

LOCAL training days

The LOCAL course has been running for six years. It is a day of biblical and practical teaching on sexuality, designed to equip churches to better help those who experience same-sex attraction to stay faithful to biblical teaching on sexual ethics and flourish at the same time.

The course offers 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
