Aaron Edwards

Aaron Edwards was sacked from his role as a theology lecturer at a Bible college and threatened with a counter-terrorism referral for a tweet on human sexuality.


Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Dr Aaron Edwards, a former theology lecturer at Cliff College, is launching legal action against the Methodist Bible college on the grounds of harassment, discrimination and unfair dismissal.

Lawyers representing Dr Edwards will argue that the college unlawfully interfered with his rights under Article 9 and/or Article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR).

Dr Edwards will be seeking damages for unfair dismissal, and compensation under the Equality Act 2010. A full employment tribunal hearing is expected in 2024.
