Transgender is regularly on the media, is becoming a more contentious issue in sport and schools are scrambling to draft policies to cover it. In the midst of the cultural conversations, those struggling with gender dysphoria often get lost.
The Evangelical Alliance is launching its new resource Transformed which provides a brief biblical and pastoral introduction to understanding transgender in a changing culture.
This is a free event which will take place from 7.30-9.30pm on 25th June 2019 at Belfast Bible College.
This event is geared towards the wider church - particularly parents, children & youth workers, pastors and any Christian grappling with questions and issues surrounding the Transgender movement, within the wider cultural framework.
Peter Lynas is passionate about faith in the public square and leads the team at Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland. He is the lead author of the Transformed resource.
David Martin is the director of Irish Church Missions and the author of Rewriting Gender? The book helps parents who are looking for guidance on how to explain gender issues to their children.
Tim Shiels is the pastor of Omagh Community Church. In 2012, his Dad transitioned and Tim will share about journeying as a son and pastor with a family member who experiences gender dysphoria.
