Workshops & Consultation

So here’s the thing…

No faith-filled leader in history has ever intended to miss-handle a sensitive topic. Like, ever.

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 sex and sexual experience. 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 church walls.

As a result we are seeing a generation that knows God put sex in marriage, but doesn’t understand why. They are left with rules to follow, instead of a pathway to the heart of God.

“But BKT”, we hear you say, “There has to be a way!”


…and there is.


Let us not forget that when Jesus met the women by the well, He did not reprimand her way of life, but instead offered Her access to the living God. Her behaviour transformed after this encounter (John 4:1-26).


At BKT, we believe that all people are worthy of acceptance and education regardless of their experiences and opinions. We acknowledge that all people’s stories and questions are valuable and deserve a space to be explored.


We like to suggest that ‘curiosity didn’t kill the cat, curiosity empowered it!’

BKT is in their element when unpacking a biblical understanding of sex, sexual health and sexual expression within the Kingdom of God.

We love big questions and specialise in taking a deep dive into the following:

🍆 What is sex?

🙌🏼 What does God have to say about it?

💓 And, what do we do with all of these ‘big feelings’?

We use personal narrative, informed teaching and action-reflection activities as we facilitate a space to wrestle, carry doubt and ask BIG questions.

“It’s been great to work with the team at BKT and help our parents talk about this with each other and their young people! BKT helps give us (parents and leaders) a common language and framework to share God’s grace and work through big questions around sexuality with our young people.

I look forward to the way God will use this night as a springboard to helping our young people navigate living for Jesus in a complex world. Can’t wait to have them back!”

“I am so excited to endorse The Big Kids’ Table in their endeavour to bring to the table the crucial topic of sexual and reproductive health, fully aware of our God who loves us and gives us purpose and identity.

There is much information (and mis-information) on the topics of sexual and reproductive health from secular sources, the internet, and in pornography. Georgia and Lauren provide a much needed alternative voice which is God centred, scientifically accurate, engaging and fun!”

“Working with BKT was simply awesome … It was biblical, thoughtful and engaging for our teenagers, and raised so many important aspects of the topics while incorporating so much of the current cultural dialogue. The best part was their program empowered our leadership team to facilitate discussions with our young people that continued after the sessions.


Having them in gave us the permission to approach big topics, and removed any fear or shame from the discussion. There were resources for parents, for leaders, and for the youth themselves.


Thanks BKT, can’t wait to work with you again!”

“I found the discussion and sharing throughout the session to be quite engaging and stimulating & I definitely got a lot out of it.

I am very much looking forward to when we host the Youth Workshop and how they respond to this different perspective on sex culture and putting it into a comparative context from a Christian point of view!”

“One of the leaders just told me that’s the best thing he has ever done on this topic – out of all the talks at school and youth and stuff like that – by far the best one!

Thanks again – such good nights and everything I was hoping they would be and more”

“It was so amazing having an organisation so excited about Jesus come and share with our young people all about how to steward their sexuality!

Their biblical and gospel focused teaching paired so beautifully with a clear heart to see young people liberated from shame and condemnation, which gave such honour and dignity to each of our youth.

It was such a valuable and interactive night, and I highly recommend all youth groups get on board with BKT!”

“Thanks for your work last week to create an engaging, biblical, informative and positive view of sex. I’m sure it will help our youth to develop a healthy view of God and sex. We will be happy to recommend BKT to other groups. Your work in this area is greatly appreciated. God has raised you up for this time and we pray you will have a tremendous impact on youth not just in Melbourne but across Australia.”

“Massive props to the Big Kids’ Table for seeing the need to talk about what healthy relationships are. It’s so easy to ignore the issues of sexualisation and pornography’s impact on relationships, but BKT has recognised a need to start the discussion.

At our youth group, it was clear that BKT really made an impact, I could see many of our youth being challenged and also encouraged to talk about the ‘taboo’ subject of sex. I loved the vibe BKT brought, they gave us a judgement-free, guilt-free space to talk about these issues in a real way.

I would definitely want BKT to come back! Strongly recommend!”

Working together is a dream come true for us, and we recommend it looks a little something like this:

Just imagine…

Being confident and equipped to talk about God and sex, with anyone.

Seeing your community thrive in their Christ-like identity and sexuality.

Seeing Jesus glorified in the relationships (romantic and other) you’re surrounded by.

Seeing your young people actively challenging culture and representing Christ in all they do.

If this made your heart sing, let’s chat now! We would love to make this your reality.

We work with ministries and education providers!
