  • NEW SEGMENT DURING CHURCH SERVICES: "Why I choose to belong to MCC Sydney"

How are we going MCC Sydney? Are we taking care of our body, mind and spirit? Are we taking a break from news cycles and social media to do something lifegiving? As we move into a new month, an opportunity each day to practice kindness toward ourselves and one another. My thanks to www.actionforhappiness.org for some truly amazing resources to help us keep balanced during these anxious days. The calendar attached invites us to take one simple action each day of August to bring a ray of happiness into the world and to give a positive focus for ourselves throughout the month. Remember as always to reach out if you need to talk, and that this time of pandemic shall too pass, it's not forever. Blessings 💒🙏. Rev. Dale

Our Typical Weekend Service

Traditional Service

The morning service is 'traditional', combining elements and worship practices that will be familiar to you if you have participated in Protestant or Catholic church services before. We recite liturgy, read from the bible, hear a sermon, pray, and sing hymns.

Contemporary Worship

In this contemporary worship service the music is modern, the worship style is flexible and different aspects of faith and spirituality are explored. This service is a unique blend from many different backgrounds and traditions and is for both young and old!


After the morning or evening service we invite everyone to join together for fellowhip in our community room over coffee, tea, finger food, and snacks. During this time we announce who's having a birthday that week & celebrate.


Queer Spirituality.

Homosexuality is not a sin!

Tear down the false belief. It's time to reconcile your faith and your sexuality.


See our various groups for Bible Study, Conversation, Catch Up & Pastoral Care, designed for LGBTQA+ community

What People Say About Us


Sydney Star Observer (SSO) interviewed Peter Webster one of our members in 2015: 

SSO: "As LGBTI people become more accepted in heterosexual society, why should places like MCC Sydney continue to exist?"


“We could go to a gay-friendly church, and there’s a number of them, and we can take communion. (But) We can’t do it together. We can’t kiss. We can’t hold hands. No matter how open and affirming, and that’s the official term, ‘affirming’, churches are, there are limits.”

“In MCC Sydney, my partner and I take communion,” Webster said.

“We go down there together. We hold hands. We give each other the bread and the wine. We kiss. Then we go for prayer with the pastor… then at the end of that we kiss again".

Together, We Can Change The World


Brad Scanlan is one of our congregants, he is a recently retired police sergeant who served three decades with @nswpolice. 

When Brad joined the force back in the late 80s, gay hate crimes and homophobic attitudes were rife. While he knew the relationship between police and the LGBT community was fraught, Brad was eager to combat issues from the inside.
