Bikers Church

The Biker’s Church is a non-denominational church which believes that every biker has a spiritual side that can be explored in a non-threatening, welcoming environment. Services are on Thursday nights to allow members to participate in the many rallies and events that take place on the weekends. A “typical” Thursday night service includes a show-n-shine, rocking blues music, shooting pool, biker videos, lots of magazines, as well as a relevant discussion on how to make sense of our spiritual side. Our pastor has been ordained for over 11 years, and is available, free of charge, for biker weddings, counselling, visitation, funerals, dedications, etc.

They all have a common passion for motorcycling and in particular BMW motorbikes of all ages.
