Welcome to MCC North London

We would like to share a bit about the church with you. MCCNL strives to be a passionately open, active and Spirit-led Christian faith community. Whilst founded in the LGBT community, the church is open to everyone.

MCCNL invites you to come as you are - you don't have to pretend to be more or less than yourself here. We believe that you will find much love, strength and life-affirming spirituality at the heart of the church.

It is a great place to be moved spiritually through a range of cutting-edge music combined with traditional liturgy in a contemporary style. We hope this makes our services suitable for those who like dynamic Spirit-filled worship within a larger group as well as those who are seeking opportunities for more reflective contemplative moments in worship

Come and join us for our 7pm Praise & Worship Service at Trinity United Reformed Church, Buck Street, Camden.

  1. AGM – 16th November

    9 October 2014

     

    Our Annual General Meeting is on 16th November. This is your chance to have your say in the running of the Church, vote for the Board of directors, or to stand for the Board yourself if you wish. Remember, if you don’t turn up, you can’t complain about the way the votes went!

    Anyone who is a Member in good standing, and has been a member for at least 6 months can be nominated for the Board. It is not an easy job, however – if you wish to stand, please pick up a copy of the Board protocol from the table at church on Sunday, and ask a Board Member or the Pastor more about what the job entails. If  you still want to stand, get two members to propose and second you, (forms available at the back of the church) and send a photo and an explanation of why you think you would be a good choice for a Board Member, so that Rev Sharon can include these in the information packs, and we can all see why we should vote for you!
