About this Event

Teaching on relationships and sex, evolution and other religions have frequently been battlegrounds between Christian parents and others when it comes to schooling. But is there more we can learn about a Christian education?

How does the gospel relate to our understanding of children, parenting and education? How can we learn from Jesus about teaching? What is distinctive about the aims of Christian education?

Former head teacher Steve Beegoo, Christian Concern’s Head of Education, addresses these questions and more to help us gain a Biblical vision for education.

We will be joined by Christian Concern’s Chief Executive, Andrea Williams and Head of Public Policy, Tim Dieppe for a Q&A straight after.

More about the series

Gospel Issues is Christian Concern’s seminar series launched last year to inform and equip the church on issues that Christians are facing today. Whether we are aware of it or not, society is changing at a rapid rate, and many Christians are finding themselves at odds with the truths of the Bible and what is being accepted and promoted in modern society.

At the first Monday of each month, we will explore hot-button topics such as transgenderism, abortion, education reforms, marriage and Islam. These seminars aim to give Christians clear and compassionate ways of understanding, responding to and challenging the issues that are becoming ever present in schools, workplaces and churches.

Join us as we explore the ideological roots of the challenges around us and put on the mind of Christ as we think through the Biblical responses needed.

You can also watch all of our previous seminars for free!

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
