A church in central Auckland is auctioning one of its controversial billboards on Trade Me.

The image of Jesus Christ with a rainbow halo and the words 'It's Christmas - Time for Jesus to Come Out' is being sold by St Matthew In The City.

The auction is up to nearly $800.

It has attracted over 50 comments with some people outraged and others amused.

One person says he's bidding so he can put the billboard through the shredder.

Bids close on Monday.
