“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls… And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.” ― Khalil Gibran

 
 

Metropolitan Community Church Sydney

 

is an affirming Christian Church for all people, and especially LGBTIQA+ identifying people.

 

As a progressive Christian church we are open to all people who want to learn more about God. We give thanks to God for people of all genders, sexualities, ages and cultural backgrounds. At MCC all persons have value and worth, and are uniquely gifted to share the Good News with others. So no matter what, you are welcome at MCC Sydney.

We invite you to come as you are, whether you

identify as Christian, come from another faith background or are of no prior faith tradition.

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!

Fellowship

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.

Caring

Queer Spirituality.

Homosexuality is not a sin!

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

Programs

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.
