Communion

Communion at MCC Brisbane is open to everyone. You do not have to be a member of this or any church. We use gluten free bread and non-alcoholic grape juice as the symbols of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

Fellowship

After the service please join us for supper and fellowship in the courtyard. Supper at MCC provides opportunity for friendship and mutual support in time of need.

Question Box

Write your questions (anonymous if you prefer) and place them in the box on the table at church. The pastor will answer the questions during the service. Questions can be on Biblical themes or teachings, relationship issues or other matters relevant to MCC Brisbane. A small prize will be given for the best question.

MCC Melbourne Training Seminar

Marriage Equality Postal Survey

MCC Brisbane has long advocated for marriage equality – indeed for the rights of all humans to live their lives freely under God. MCC Brisbane supports a YES vote in the upcoming postal survey on marriage.

Support

MCC Brisbane will provide support for anyone who needs it over the next few months. If you, or someone you know, needs help, then contact one of the following organisations:

Annual General Meeting

Our AGM will take place on Sunday 26 November at 5pm at the church. Reports for the last 12 months will be presented, including a financial statement. The budget for 2018 will be presented for approval and two Board members will be elected. Everyone is invited and members are urged to be present. Official notices with nomination forms will be emailed to members soon. Pizza will be served after the AGM at approximately 6:15pm and the normal church service will follow at 7pm.

Annual Christmas Appeal

This year we are collecting for Open Doors and Queensland Positive People (QPP). Open Doors have requested $10 gift cards from either Woolies or Coles. This enables a homeless or at risk youth to obtain food that night. They have also requested non-perishable food (tins and packet food) for the same reasons. Please bring your donations to church any Sunday. Give gift cards to any board member and place food items in the box near the entrance door. For information see Kevin, Service Project Coordinator for MCC Brisbane.

Pastoral Care

If you would like to speak with the pastor privately, please email pastor@mccbris.asn.au or phone 3891 1388 to make an appointment. The pastor is available on Sundays from 5pm at the church but can meet at other times as required.

New Trans Website

New Trans Website started by Rev Jo Inkpin, Anglican priest and trans woman who recently spoke at MCC Brisbane. Resources include: video links, theology, scripture, spirituality, support and Jo’s ongoing blog. Go to: <www.transspirit.org>
