At TFT, we conduct around 50 speaking engagements each year and have speakers who can come to churches and Christian events around the UK and Ireland.
We are fully aware of the sensitivities around issues of faith and sexuality and always seek to speak with both grace and truth. All our speakers are also personally impacted in some way by the topic of same-sex attraction and can, therefore, share their personal stories and experience.
Breadth of speaking events
Our speakers come from a range of denominational backgrounds and are available to speak at a variety of events and institutions including:
- Church services
- Bible colleges
- Training days for church leaders
- Church Q&A’s and interviews
- Youth groups
- Student events
We speak throughout the UK and Ireland. Occasionally, we speak further afield too.
Range of topics
Please feel free to suggest a title and topic. We specialise in speaking on same-sex attraction, but we can also speak on related topics such as singleness, intimacy and biblical friendship. We do teach on gender, but only within the context of wider teaching (e.g. gender can be one element of a Bible College lecture, alongside other elements such as teaching on sexuality).
Alongside our teaching ministry, we also have TFT Representatives who can attend church breakfasts, prayer meetings, or similar events. Their focus is to promote the ministry of TFT and share something of their story. The Representatives are not expected to teach or answer theological questions.
Normally we suggest booking a speaker around 4-6 months in advance and a TFT Representative 3-4 months in advance, to ensure availability. If you are not able to do this, however, we will try our best to accommodate all enquiries.
Is there a cost?
We normally expect those who invite a speaker to at least cover our expenses, although we do not expect this from places which may not be able to cover the costs, such as youth groups and Christian unions.

“The feedback was invariably very positive. I thank the Lord for the brothers from TFT for their Word-based, grace-filled, Christ-exalting ministry.” Craig Dyer, West of Scotland Gospel Partnership
“The feedback from both staff and students from last week has been overwhelmingly positive. We much appreciated the strong biblical content in the sessions you led, and comment has also been made about the way in which you both dealt with issues in a pastorally sensitive manner.” Ian Coffey, Moorlands College.
Thanks so much for all you did last week at our youth camp. That was really appreciated, and very well received by the campers, who continued to chat about it as the week went on. Above all, thank you for your honesty and biblical faithfulness, and your gospel focus in all you do. Jim Sayers, Grace Baptist Church
“Thank you so much for coming to teach us and share your story with us. We very much appreciated your time with us, and the way that you warmly modelled truth and grace.” John Russell, Cornerstone Church Nottingham
