This Sunday, 7News Spotlight presents a revealing episode as it goes inside the Jesus Christians, one of Australia’s most secretive cults, based in suburban Melbourne. The episode airs on Channel 7 at 8:30 p.m. on May 19, 2024.

In this investigative report, 7News Spotlight explores the world of the Jesus Christians, a group shrouded in secrecy and led by the enigmatic David McKay.

What sets this episode apart is the unprecedented access granted by McKay himself. In a surprising move, he invites the 7News Spotlight team to spend time with him and his community, offering a rare glimpse into their daily lives, routines, and beliefs. However, what starts as an invitation to dispel coercion and manipulation allegations takes an unexpected turn as McKay finds himself in a confrontational exchange with 7News Spotlight’s Liam Bartlett.

The investigation uncovers a story that is not only bizarre but also deadly, as hinted at by Bartlett: “What we saw during our time there was bizarre and would eventually lead us to the other side of the world – and a story bigger and more deadly than we could ever have imagined.”
