MCF exists to promote Christian faith in the Australian Defence Force. It does this primarily through supporting Christians who work in and around the ADF, helping the vital ministry of ADF Chaplains, and reaching out to those that want to know more about Christ and the meaning of Christianity.
On behalf of the MCF Council I welcome you to our website and trust that it enables you to learn, be inspired, and get in touch with other Defence Christians. If you have any news or contributions that are in line with the MCF mission then just email the MCF Office.
If you are interested in exploring the Christian faith and would like a good place to start, check out our Exploring Christianity page.

The Forum of Christian Military Ministries (FCMM) is a gathering between various Christian military ministries to come together and share what God has been doing in their organisations and to produce and maintain strong ties of unity.
Taking the MCF Hope Seminar (21 May 2016) to a region was a great success. It was held near RAAF Williamtown. It sought to explore how our hope in God is important for our physical, mental and spiritual resilience and wellbeing, with a focus on mental health. Thanks to everyone who played a part in bringing this event together and for all who came along. Future seminars will continue to be held in various locations.
The 2016 Defence Christian's Dinner was a great success. It took place on Friday August 5th 2016. It was again at the Southern Cross Club in Woden and 186 adults and 3 children were there enjoying the evening. This years speaker was Air Commodore Alan Clements, Commandant of ADFA. He did a QandA style talk on the topic of 'Resilient Leadership'.
