  • MCF is proud to work in collaboration with the Defence Chaplains.


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.

God bless,
