Pastors' Academy
Study Days


Our Ethics Study Days consider what it means to live faithfully as God’s creatures in his world. Sometimes the focus is on a pressing cultural issue, sometimes the days consider more enduring questions of what it means to live a life that is pleasing to God.

These days are grounded in the wisdom of the Scriptures, and enriched by the great teachers of the Christian tradition. They also pay careful attention to the roots and fruits of current philosophical and cultural trends. They will help you to understand more clearly and deeply the relationship of ethical questions to the doctrines of the gospel, and the practical implications for Christians and our families, friends, churches, communities, and institutions.

Our Tutor in Ethics, the Revd Matthew Mason, teaches our ethics study days at London Seminary. He also teaches groups of pastors around the country.

Current Ethics Day

The Wounded It Heals: The Gospel and the Ethics of Transgender

Demands for public, total, and unreserved acceptance of transgender people and ideology have been bombarding our newsfeeds and Netflix watchlists, schools and universities, workplaces and churches. For some people, including some in evangelical churches, the issue is deeply and painfully personal. This study day will help us navigate the theological, philosophical, cultural, and pastoral issues involved, wisely and compassionately in the light of the liberating and renewing biblical gospel of Jesus Christ.

Matthew Mason, our Tutor in Ethics, introduces the day:
