(3NEWS) — Auckland church St Matthew-in-the-City has raised enough money for at least two more controversial billboards by auctioning off its Christmas offering on TradeMe.

The old billboard, depicting a gay baby Jesus, sold to Wellington bidder ‘Jon’ for $860 this afternoon after the church asked its creative agency to list it on the auction site.

The 2.1m by 3m vinyl poster shows a baby Jesus lying in a manger with a rainbow halo, and the words “It’s Christmas. Time for Jesus to come out.”

The billboard gained worldwide attention when it was put up before Christmas last year.
