Dr Peter Catt has criticised the Sydney Diocese's $1 million donation to the No campaign.

An Anglican Dean has hit out at his own church's decision to donate $1 million dollars of church money on the same-sex marriage 'no' campaign.

Anglican Dean of Brisbane, Dr Peter Catt, was gutted by the news the Sydney diocese had been poured the sizeable sum into a Coalition for Marriage advertising campaign, saying there were much better uses for the money.

"I would have thought that million dollars could have been spent on something that the church is more agreed on, say looking after the homeless, the plight of the refugee - the list goes on and on," he told ABC radio on Thursday morning.
