The first MCC in Europe was started by Rev Elder Jean White in London in 1972. The need for MCC in England was great and the church grew rapidly. As soon as people were trained to become pastors within the denomination so new churches were planted. MCC North London came into existence in 1987 under the pastoral care of Rev Elder Hong Tan. MCCNL has held worship services in a number of different churches in the north London area over the years. Often we had to leave because of a change in pastor in the host church bringing a different view towards acceptance of lgbt people. We moved to our current home in Trinity URC, Camden in 1996 where we continue to receive a warm welcome and our congregations support each other.
