CURRENT ISSUES FACING THE CHURCH

Here we explore some of the theological and sociological issues which the Church is currently wrestling with.

 

Much of our purpose and meaning in this life depends on an accurate understanding of the tension between the ‘here and now’ and the ‘there and then’. As a church, what should we expect in this life and what should we be patiently waiting and praying for at the second return of Christ?


Biblical justice is being distorted within the church by modern, secular ideas and activism. What does it mean to be ‘anti-racist’? Should we be aiming for equal representation on our pastoral teams? How should the church be helping the poor? Let’s get back to a Godly perspective on justice.


Never has a woman’s role and contribution in society, family and church been so hotly contested – are Feminism and Christianity compatible? Can women serve as pastors? Here we re-visit these pressing questions from a Biblical perspective.
