Jesus and the Postal Vote (Sermon by Dominic Steele, September 20, 2017) Start listening at 6:50

"The teaching of Jesus is that marriage is to be between a man and a woman, and it's to be lifelong...that's the definition of marriage established by God. The bible in other places says that homosexual sex is wrong."

Is Jesus good news for the LGBTI community? (Sermon by Sam Allberry, August 21, 2017) Start listening at 13:13

"That's why they've translated it in these church bibles 'sexual immoralities' plural, because there's more than one form it can take. Jesus would be including sex before marriage; he would be including adultery, which he mentions elsewhere; he would be including prostitution; and he would have been including any same-sex sexual behavior as well."

God, Gender & Sexuality (Sermon by Dominic Steele, July 22, 2016) Start listening at 28:15

"There is no androgynous human nature that underlies our humanity...a person's gender is either male or female, is an objective God-given reality. God intends us to know, to embrace, to inhabit our gender, as an aspect of our particularized human nature...It is because a person's gender as either male or female is a God-given reality, that gender dysphoria causes so much trauma both physically and psychologically."
