Brisbane Christian Fellowship

Special Guest: Simon Doyle

Simon was born into an associated branch of the Brisbane Christian Fellowship. He spent his life amongst the group until his mid-20s when he started to question the beliefs and practices of the group. He eventually escaped around Easter 2018 with the help of his now-wife. Since then Simon has been rebuilding himself. He now enjoys spending time with his wife and child and building guitars.

Brisbane Christian Fellowship sounds like a fairly innocuous name for a church. But the BCF and its network of organisations across Australia have been the subject of a Four Corners investigation and a detailed book, speaking with former members who have numerous stories of families being torn apart as a result of their involvement. Author Morag Zwartz wrote that this church “is every bit as pernicious and harmful as the Exclusive Brethren.”
