Christian sex education workshops for churches

Age-appropriate programs tailored for whole church communities.

Trusted by Aussie churches for authentic faith-inspired sex ed

So here's the thing...

No faith-filled leader in history has ever intended to mishandle a sensitive topic. 

But for too long, the modern church in Australia has missed the opportunity to effectively and consistently speak into the lives of their young people regarding sexuality, relationships, and God. Good intentions aside, whether it be miss(or no)-education or a culture that doesn’t foster safe exploration, young people are being left to answer big questions outside of Christian community and are being discipled by the internet.

As a result, we are seeing a generation of young people that have heard Christians think sex belongs in marriage, but aren’t sold on, or don’t understand, why. They are left with rules to follow or avoid, instead of a pathway to the heart of God and a personal relationship with Christ.

All of our programs are tailored to fit the needs of your community, and we can cover any of the following topics in a scaffolded way…

Frequently asked questions

Our program fees vary depending on the booking, however small church communities have a special place in our heart. Please get in touch to explore this further!

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.

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 & sexual diversity in these 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 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.

CHILD SAFETY INFO

MEET OUR TEAM

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.

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!

Yes, absolutely! We have worked in various contexts, not only Friday night ministries. Get in contact to explore what this could look like for your community.

Get int ouch to explore this further.

Yes, we sure do. We are passionate about making the love of Jesus known in this space all over the country! Please get in touch to explore what this could look like.

Get int ouch to explore this further.

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.
