New guard at MCC Sydney

New guard at MCC Sydney

A new generation of young people is at the helm of the Metropolitan Community Church’s (MCC) entry into the 2012 Mardi Gras Parade.

Christopher Entwistle, 23, and Alex Pittaway, 22, are organising this year’s float and are part of a recent increase in younger members joining MCC Sydney at Mardi Gras. Pittaway said he felt honoured to be able to express his faith to Sydney’s LGBT community.

“Our theme borrows from the Lady Gaga song, Born This Way, with ‘God makes no mistakes’’,” Pittaway said.

“So often the church has told gay and lesbian people that they are a mistake that needs fixing. Chris and I are passionate about telling a different story at Mardi Gras: that God does not make mistakes and Christ’s love for God’s children is all-inclusive.

“This year we’ll be kicking off with a blessing of Mardi Gras Service which I encourage all to attend, on February 19 at 6.30pm.”

MCC Sydney attracts upwards of 80 people to its two Sunday services, with a traditional service at 10am and a contemporary service at 6.30pm.

“There are still places available on the MCC’s parade float, and all are welcome to participate.
