The topic of sexual and gender diversity has been one that has ripped through the Australian and Christian landscape in recent years. It is a topic that Christian young people want to be informed about and given a safe space to discuss. We want to raise a generation of Christians who step into big conversations with confidence in the Gospel.
To achieve this, within our general workshops we seek to facilitate and strengthen participants in their independent thinking and research of such topics. We provide a framework built around the heart of God, that aims to equip our audience instead of dictating a list of rights and wrongs.
We do not unpack gender and sexual diversity in our School Program workshops as it deserves to be explored with time and intention. This is why we have created the BKT Roadmap.
The BKT Roadmap is a therapeutically informed, legally sound program for Christian communities. This program does not champion a particular theological view, or “destination”, but is focused on building skills of active listening, robust conversations, critical thinking, and Biblical literacy, i.e., “how to drive” and “what to pack”. The BKT Roadmap exists to equip communities with the skills they require to have conversations in a healthy, safe, and ongoing way.
If you are interested in this program, please sign up to our mailing list below to receive updates on its launch. The program will commence in early 2024.
We are very aware of how sensitive the topics we discuss are and take great care to equip the communities that we are working with to continue the conversations we start. We target our content at the age and stage of our audience and work closely with our clients to ensure that the content we present is in line with their vision and values.
Furthermore, we have an incredibly experienced and qualified team. Our Co-Founder, Georgia, has over a decade of experience in parachurch and parish-based youth ministry, has worked as a chaplain in several schools, and has attended bible college. Our other founder, Lauren, is a registered teacher and Wellbeing Coordinator at a Christian school with a Bachelor of Teaching (Outreach and Community Education), a Diploma of Mental Health and a Diploma in Alcohol and Other Drugs.
Additionally, our team is made up of psychologists, teachers, youth pastors, bible college students, social workers, nurses, and more. Everyone on the team is a committed, active Christian and all follow our child safety compliance policies.
You can read up more on our child safety policies and our team below.
Big Kids’ Table does not represent, or affiliate, with a specific denomination. We pride ourselves on building a team from various protestant Christian backgrounds and expressions of faith. We uphold a mainstream doctrine and you can find out more below about what we believe.
While we uphold a mainstream Christian belief, we offer an explorative cultural analysis of both secular and church environments. Our workshops are designed to help participants explore what they believe and provide frameworks and discussion to do so. Participants do not need to be a Christian to benefit from our program, however we always share a gospel message as we conclude and invite responses.
After all, our dream is that someone would come to faith as a sex-ed workshop!
We believe in a whole school approach to learning and our Program is designed to be exactly that! We recommend you front-load your parent and guardian cohort by sending out the provided letter prior to hosting a Parent & Guardian workshop. Next, we work with your staff to facilitate a workshop on unpacking culture and their role as a Chistian educator within this.
As the student workshops commence, our Pastoral Care resources, included with the student workshops, are designed to ‘warm up’ and ‘cool down’ your students before the workshop by building skills and language that will assist them to engage with the workshops effectively, with a focus on student-led cultural change.
Finally, our School Program is designed as a scaffolded Scope and Sequence to ensure that your students are building skills and language as they advance through their schooling.
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all method. We will work with you to ensure that the workshops fit into your school’s learning approaches and culture.
We can help! Our Co-Director, Lauren, is experienced in consulting and creating wellbeing programs for Christian schools. Additionally, our Schools Program is created as a Scope and Sequence that is in line with the Victorian Curriculum.
As our program is a whole community approach, we recommend booking as far in advance as possible! Ideally we prefer bookings no less than a term in advance. However, from time to time we are able to squeeze a community in with quick notice, so get in contact to explore things further.
Yes, absolutely! We have worked with church communities that have done just that. If numbers or budget are a difficulty for you, consider joining forces with another local ministry to double the reach, and half the program cost!

Yes, we do. We offer online workshops for adults at a cheaper rate than in person. However, please note we do not offer online programs for young people as we believe these conversations need to be had in person where things can be safely and successfully explored in a pastorally considered way.
