7News Spotlight: May 19

Seven cameras visit the secretive Jesus Christians community operating in suburban Melbourne.

This Sunday, 7News Spotlight goes inside one of Australia’s most secretive cults, the Jesus Christians, operating out of suburban Melbourne.

In this confronting worldwide investigation airing this Sunday at 8.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus, 7NEWS Spotlight goes inside one of Australia’s most secretive cults, the Jesus Christians, operating out of suburban Melbourne.

It’s known as The Kidney Cult, with followers urged to donate their kidneys. For what purpose, nobody knows. But it doesn’t stop there.

Leader David McKay persuades his followers to cut ties with family and friends and limits their communication from the outside world, leaving parents devastated and angry.

In a bizarre attempt to prove he is not coercing or manipulating anyone, McKay invites 7NEWS Spotlight’s cameras to spend time with him and the secretive Jesus Christians community, granting unfettered access to their home life, daily routines, beliefs and the inner workings of one of the world’s most controversial religious cults.

This time, however, McKay might have bitten off more than he can chew as he faces off with 7NEWS Spotlight’s Liam 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,” Bartlett said.

8:30pm Sunday on Seven.
