2020 Subject: Human Sexuality
Do you wish you had more time to reflect on the key issues of our day? Do you share a passion to do theology
well at the coal face of ministry and mission? Would you love to spend two days engaging with eminent
theologians who will stretch your thinking, with plenty of time for discussion, interaction, and good food and
hospitality? Whether you’re a church leader, part of a leadership team, a student, or just interested in
theology, you’ll love Fresh Streams Theology School 2020.
What will we discuss?
At Conference 2019 delegates identified Human Sexuality as the key area church leaders would value greater
input in theologically, recognising that this is a matter on which there is serious disagreement. The
contributors to Theology School in 2020 disagree about this amongst themselves also, whilst agreeing that
our churches must take seriously their welcome of those who identify as LGBT+.
With grace and courage, delegates are invited to listen attentively, engage fully, study the scriptures carefully, and consider how those who disagree can thrive together as the people of God in loving fellowship and mutual respect in the same church. Our hope is that you will feel empowered and resourced to facilitate thiscrucial conversation in your own setting when you go home.
