We want to ensure that everyone is welcomed in churches, whether they are a Christian who experiences same sex attraction (SSA) or who has experienced SSA in the past, or whether a member of the LGBT community who is exploring faith. 

Becoming a recognised SPACIOUS PLACE church ensures that anyone coming to your church knows that they will be met with love, and given space to learn about God’s purpose for their life in line with Biblical teaching, without the fear of judgment or coercion.

We have produced these training resources to help equip your church leadership to provide loving and safe environments for all to explore faith and fully understand the specific needs of this community.

There are two programmes available, one for Church leadership and one designed specifically for youth pastors and parents to have those important conversations with teenagers as well as a one off training video to help you consider how best to offer prayer ministry within your church environment.

Sexuality, God and Teenagers

Access our series of videos aimed at helping parents and youth pastors talk to teenagers.

Work through 7 sessions with content designed to help you start those important conversations about sexual orientation, identity, the teaching of different denominations as well as understanding the voices which influence teenagers, how to distinguish between experiencing attractions and acting on them and the importance of relationship; how God views us as sexual beings.

Spacious Place Training for Churches

Access our training for Church leaders and pastoral carers. Explore how you can lead your church to be a place where members of the LGBT community feel welcomed to explore faith.

Equip your pastoral carers to understand the unique challenges of those who are same sex attracted and seeking to live in line with God's word and become a church where singles are absorbed into the body of the church, with equal value placed on singleness and marriage.

9 Step Model for Prayer Ministry

You may wonder why there’s a need for a specific model of prayer ministry when you have probably been successfully praying with people for years. The key reason for this new model is to help you to become a safe space for people battling with issues that are often deeply personal without you inadvertently influencing them to conform to certain standards or ideals or cause them to withdraw or struggle to share in the future because of fear of judgment.
