About MCC Toronto
We started as a LGBTQ+ church, but we have become so much more – straight, gay, trans, lesbian, queer, questioning, immigrant, Canadian, young and old – a Christian community that includes all people.
About Our Senior Pastor
Rev. Jeff Rock is a Canadian clergy who became the Senior Pastor Elect of the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto in the Fall of 2017 after a ‘Yes’ vote by church members on July 9, 2017. He was installed as the Senior Pastor in a ceremony at MCC Toronto on January 21, 2018, and officially succeeded Rev. Dr. Brent Hawkes on February 1 of the same year.

How Can You Become a Member of Toronto’s LGBTQ+ church? – It can be a very fulfilling experience becoming a member of a church family. The support a person can give and receive can be a tremendous comfort during times of celebration and also in times of hurt and sorrow.
The Denomination of Metropolitan Community Churches
In 1968, before the Stonewall Riots and the Christopher Street Parades, the Reverend Troy Perry founded Metropolitan Community Church of Los Angeles to serve the spiritual needs of people looking for a LGBTQ+ church. His action was revolutionary and transformative.
