SERVICES

At MCC Sydney the focus is, as always, on loving God

TRADITIONAL SERVICE
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. You may even recognise some of the music performed here from your childhood. At every service you are welcome to join us as we gather around God's table in Communion.

This is our 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!

WHAT TO EXPECT
CONTEMPORARY SERVICE
6:30pm

The structured part of our Sunday worship services lasts a little over an hour — a bit longer in the evening. Afterwards, we share some light refreshments and conversation. This element is as important as any other part of the service, because Jesus draws us into a community, and that's something we can't do by ourselves. We don't see it as sharing coffee — it's sharing ourselves.

No need to dig out your "Sunday best" clothing. We want you to be comfortable. We value integrity and authenticity over the outward appearance that a change of duds creates. Be you.

And if it is your first time with us, don't sneak out before saying hello. Give us a chance to give you a genuine MCC Sydney welcome.

. . . AND BEYOND

Being Christian isn't a one-day a week thing. We encourage our members to dig deeper into their faith through mid-week discipleship groups and bible studies.

Ask us about our Young Adult Small Group. Or sign up to be part of our next discipleship group.

 

We also have a group that seeks to deepen knowledge and enrich our spiritual life through a study of modern scholarship and archaeological findings, seeking insights into the biblical narrative that are less traditional. If you're the kind of person that can think 'outside the box', this group might be ideal for you.

Men Becoming Real is a monthly discussion group for men to focus on a single powerful question and examine their lives and the impact they can make on the world. It's not a therapy group, nor a self help group, but it draws on the biblical principle that "as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." The group is facilitated and is overseen by a professional, but the group is able to move the conversation from the starting point towards the specifics that arise from the experiences of the participants.

The group meets on the fourth Thursday of each month. For more information, email men@mccsydney.org

Our Women's Spirituality Book Circle is a fortnightly group for women and those who identify as women. It creates a sacred space for learning, growing and being. Using a variety of books as a starting point, the group seeks to draw out timely perspectives of women for the women of our time.

The group meets fortnightly on Monday evenings. For more information, email women@mccsydney.org
