Our Services




Every Sunday 10am.

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.




After the morning service or before evening service we invite everyone to join together for fellowhip at our pantry in the building. During this time we announce who's having a birthday that week & celebrate.

Contemporary Worship


Every Sunday 6.30pm.

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!

So what is MCC all about and what does MCC Sydney believe? 
And how does faith and sexuality go together? 
Here are some resources that may help in answering some of these questions.

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".
