Civil and Human Rights

Founded in 1968, Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) has been at the front of civil and human rights movements by addressing issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, economics, climate change, aging, and global human rights.

Marriage Equality

MCC was the first church to perform same-sex marriages and has been on the forefront of the struggle towards marriage equality worldwide. MCC celebrates the recent change in Australian law that now provides equality for all people to marry the person they love.


MCC recognizes needs around the world in the areas of human rights and justice, including but not limited to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community.

Building Bridges

As people of faith, MCC builds bridges that liberate and unite voices of sacred defiance. MCC leads from the margins and transforms.

MCC Brisbane is on a bold mission to transform hearts and lives.

We are a movement that proclaims God’s inclusive love for all people and bears witness to the integration of spirituality and sexuality.

Just as Jesus did, we are called to:

  • Do justice, show kindness, and live humbly with God (Micah 6:8)
  • Explore life’s questions with open heart and minds
  • Raise our voices in sacred defiance against religious (and political or systemic) exclusion
  • Reach out to those with no hope
  • Lift up new generations of remarkable, far-reaching spiritual activists.

Would Jesus discriminate? No! Neither do we.

If Jesus were here today, would he ignore a LGBTIQ person? Of course not! That is inconceivable for us. The Jesus we know loved and accepted everybody.

At MCC Brisbane, you will find people who are passionate about Jesus and the love of God, and are not afraid of diversity and independent thought.

Like the early church, we are a rainbow congregation.
