At MCC Sydney the focus is, as always, on loving God
even when we can't gather in person.
We value our community & visitors safety therefore, currently all MCC Sydney's worship services, programs and other events are being conducted Online as required by Australian health authorities. Our sacred place and sanctuary is waiting to welcome us home.
In addition to the live stream of worship services, we stream Virtual Coffee Chats to help minimize the isolation that may be felt from social distancing.
Keep informed of the risks associated with Covid-19 and act on information from reliable sources, such as health.gov.au regarding preventive measures.
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, although joining us via Live Stream means you'll need to bring your own bread and juice.
Traditional Service: 10am to 11:15am
followed by morning tea when we meet in person.
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! Have bread and juice on hand and join our Live Stream.
Contemporary Service: 6:30pm to 8pm
followed by "Coffee Hour" when we meet in person.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The structured part of our Sunday worship services lasts a little over an hour — a bit longer in the evening.
Our streaming platform is GoToMeeting, and we recommend that you log on a little early if it's your first time streaming with us, as you may need to download the GoToMeeting App.
Like you, we are finding some challenges adapting to the new Social Distancing regulations, so please be patient and flexible, and pray for us as we seek to bring you God's love through our Live Stream.
By far we would prefer to be able to share conversation and coffee with you after the service, but since that's not possible, we offer "Virtual Coffee Chats" at various times through the week. Check our events to see when the next one is.
Australians are now able to legally marry a person of any gender. Many believe it's important that this is in a church, and so MCC Sydney is available as a venue for your wedding.
You don't need to be a member of our church, or of any other church, in order to get married with us.
