We have built a house of worship for the loud and proud, the lost, the lonely and the enquiring alike. We have welcomed those with families and those without. We have catered to women and men who have felt alienated by other churches. We have supported beloved friends who are living with HIV. We have welcomed refugees, new migrants and visitors from abroad.
The Spirit truly does move at MCC Sydney. We are committed to teaching and learning more of the message of Christ, and helping each other learn and grow with God and to spreading the gospel in a supportive, non-bullying manner. If we had to pick a single thing we wanted to be famous for, we'd probably say the way we welcome anyone who wants to worship with us.
Jesus said: “A new commandment I give to you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
At MCC Sydney, you are loved, you are accepted and you are free.
Our vision at MCC Sydney is simple:
WHAT WE DO
Our goal is simple: to provide a place of worship where everyone is welcome, without exception. You are welcome.
MCC Sydney is led by our new Pastor, Rev. Dale Yardy. Rev. Dale brings almost two decades of Christian ministry experience to the role.
Each week we look forward to being challenged and inspired by Rev. Dale as he brings the Spirit and Word of God to us to enlighten and empower us in God's service.
