The film and discussion ‘Do We Need a Gay Church in the 21st Century? ‘ on Tuesday evening has been cancelled due to illness. Apologies to those who were planning to attend.
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.
Due to last minute changes by the London Pride organisers, the march will now be beginning at 11am, rather than 1pm.
Therefore we will be meeting at 10 am outside Methodist Church House on 25 Marylebone Road, and sharing communion there before we begin the march.
Due to the forecast inclement weather, the plan for this saturday’s social has changed.
We will now be meeting at Halfway to Heaven, Duncannon Street, at 1 o’clock, and making our way to Trafalgar Square to enjoy the free Musicals show, where participating shows will be performing selections from their shows.
Small groups recommence again looking at Creationism.
Camden: Wednesday 29/2/2012
Charlton: Thursday 1/3/2012
Both groups start at 7.30pm.

Please come to the right hand side door.
MCC North London are holding a service of remembrance and celebration for the life of Charles Saffery who died on 26th December 2011.
Charles was the Senior Deacon and had been a member of the Board of Directors during his membership of the Church.
All who knew and loved Charles, are invited to attend the service and share their memories.
People are invited to wear bright coloured clothing and blue nail polish to celebrate Charles’ love of colour, especially bright blue.
The service is at 3.30pm at Trinity URC, Buck Street, Camden and will be followed by refreshments.
Staff from Sainbury’s completed a sponsored walk in torrential rain to raise £195 for us. We will be purchasing a licence to show films so that we can continue to offer this entertainment to our guests at the Cold Weather Shelter as well as being useful for social events and our Younger Adults Group.
Rev Sharon Ferguson received the cheque from a member of staff who had participated in the walk.
Rev Ferguson expressed her gratitude to all who had participated as she was well aware of the terrible weather they endured on the day.
Plans are being made for more activities to raise money for us including Carol Singing and bag packing.
Thanks to all your support we have been chosen by Camden Sainsbury’s to be their charity for the coming 12 months. I have attached below the press release that went out this week making the announcement.
Not only will their financial assistance help us to expand our ministries but some of the staff will be volunteering for the Cold Weather Shelter which will ensure we will be able to once again open the doors to the homeless during the coldest months of the year.
I am looking forward to working with Sainsbury’s and I hope you will also get involved in various fundraising activities and events.
One of these will be carol singing in the store leading up to Christmas.
The vision of MCC North London is to express faith inwardly, outwardly and upwardly through grace, inclusion and compassion.
We will achieve this by:
Inwardly – providing opportunities for all people to deepen and grow their faith by supporting them on their individual journey.
Outwardly – taking God’s love into the world around us in word and deed, fulfilling the Great Commission and Christ’s call to social action.
Upwardly – coming together as a community of faith to worship and adore our God.
