 About Core Issues Trust

Core is a non-profit Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression. It respects the rights of individuals who identify as 'gay' who do not seek change, and supports dignity for LGBT persons. It does not support gay "marriage" - usually considered an "equality" issue, premised on the belief that being gay is "biological"   and is therefore unchangeable. Core Issues Trust offers one-to-one support for individuals volunarily seeking to leave homosexual behaviours and feelings. Please read our "Statement on Prejudice" The Royal College of Psychiatrists (2014) has recently affirmed that human sexuality is fluid for some, and therefore changeable in some cases. Core Issues Trust promotes the idea that individuals are not "victims" of their sexual desires.

Which is it? Did Boris mislead the media or the HIgh Court?.


Consulting rooms for men and women who want therapeutic support to help them move away from same-sex attraction, (denied to them by the UK Professional Mental Health Bodies) were dedicated at the headquarters of the Christian Charity, Core Issues Trust (CIT) in Belfast on Sunday 15th June, 2014.  Similar services are available in London. In December 2014, the Trust was denied renewed affiliation of the Association of Christian Counsellors, and in a statement the trust has declined to support the ACC's view that clients may not work to reduce or eliminate unwanted homosexual feelings, nor therapists assist them. As a Christian Charity recognised for tax purposes by HMRC based in Northern Ireland and operating in both Belfast and London, CIT also holds institutional memberships in the Evangelical Alliance (EA), and with the International Federtion for Therapeutic Choice (IFTC), a branch of the USA-based National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).

The dedication was attended by Dr Christopher Rosik, President-elect of the US National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (foreground left), Professor Robert Gagnon, of Pittsburg Theological Seminary (foreground right), and CEO of Restored Hope Network now representing more than 40% of ministries based in the USA, Anne Paulk  (back left) and others.  Rev Rodney Stout (Ballynahinch Baptist) and Professor Robert Gagnon offered dedicatory prayers.




Core Issues Trust Counselling - with Jake Finchley (actor), taking the role of client in this illustrative video

Core Issues Trust campaigns for the freedoms of men an women who, although may have experieinced homosexual feelings and behaviours, are unwilling to be forced into accepting that homosexual practice is innate, and immutable.

Dr Mike Davidson has was recently removed from the trainee register of the British Psychodrama Association (BPA) on instruction by the UKCP  which sought to expel him. His expulsion relates to views he expressed on the BBC that for some people homosexuality is changeable and that with informed consent, those seeking to reduce homosexual feelings where possible, should be supported by therapists. Consider the voices of Catholic Christians in the video "The Third Way".


Some other voices to consider ...

I didn't choose my homosexual feelings, but I knew I had choices around these feelings...

Sexual Identities and the right of Choice: "The Big Questions" BBC 1

The Core Vision and Core Values and ethical statements recognise that sexual expression outside of marriage between one man and one woman, and homosexual genital expression is not God’s will for His people. Resource material cited on this site can be purchased from the online bookstore. The Core Learning Community provides a secure, online learning site providing a place for those coming out of homosexuality, and those who support them, to connect and learn from one another.
