A Special Invitation to Church Leaders

EFN is delighted to invite Church Leaders to participate in an important conversation on pornography use and how to talk about it in church.  This event will take place as part of our annual Bridge Conference, which is being held online for the first time.

EFN recognises that pornography use is a key driver to human trafficking. Unfortunately, the church is not exempt from pornography use.  Often the church struggles to deal with the issue, considering it a taboo subject.  This event hopes to help church leaders understand the issue better as well give keys for addressing the core issues behind it.

We look forward to seeing you there!


This event is free.  However, donations are welcome.
