Biker Carols

[img] 2017 Biker Carols Santa Claus Vintage PosterIt’s that time of year again —Christmas. No one can escape it, not even bikers. But, come on, would you even if you could? Of course not; everyone loves Christmas!

What we all especially love about Christmas is not the food and the fun and the parties and the pressies. What we all really love about Christmas is the carols! Woo hoo!! Bikers are no exception to this great tradition and so, not ones to miss an opportunity to invite our mates around for a party, we are inviting you and yours to our annual Biker Carols.

On Sunday, 3 December, from 6:30-9:00, at Street Level Christian Community (59-63 Pitt St, Parramatta), bikers young and old, fat and slim, in tune and out of tune, will gather to sing Christmas carols, share yarns, eat far too much food, and generally have a rip roaring old time that is bound to bring the cops around 🙂 Don’t be the one who misses out. We’ll all be glad to see you!

Just show up or let us know you’re coming (the preferred option for catering) at our Facebook event page.

[img] Greg "Hirsty" HirstIt is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that we announce the Greg passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, 6 June, following complications from surgery. He was surrounded by his wife and children at the time.

He was very much beloved by all who knew him —his legacy will live on forever. We are going to miss him greatly.

Reflections on Brotherhood CMC’s 40 Year Celebration

For over 40 years, Brotherhood CMC members have travelled the roads of Australia and found ways to authentically share the good news of faith in Jesus Christ, help practically and personally those struggling to survive, and trod the corridors of power seeking to advocate for those marginalised in our great land. Throughout this website you will find a brief account of that journey, as well as news of upcoming events and views on a range of issues. Please have a look around and get in touch.

Brotherhood CMC started in 1977 providing a meeting place for Christian bikers. Over the years it has developed friendships with many motorcycles clubs, church groups and others in society. While still a small club it prefers to work in partnerships with other organisations to get things done including God stuff, welfare and political for those on the streets and in the motorcycle community.

“As a lawyer who worked with clubs, both outlaw and social. I got to see the Brotherhood patch many times.  I saw it at weddings and I saw it at funerals. I saw it on the back of someone ministering to someone who needed help.” Wayne Baffsky, Legal Advisor NSW UMC.

“Over … two decades I witnessed the club regularly helping those less fortunate and in need. Whether it was donating food and clothing to the homeless or offering the opportunity to remember lost mates, the Brotherhood CMC’s contribution to the motorcycling community has always been positive and purposeful.” Pugs – Live to Ride Magazine.

‘I spent a lot of time talking to members of the club especially when we had adjoining stalls at the Bankstown Show. The club has an old fashioned brotherhood bond and all of the members are always looking out for people with needs, they do so many things for the motorcycle community and the general public as well. ‘ Crossy, American Thunder Magazine Australia. 

“Congratulations to Greg Hirst and the Brotherhood CMC for 40 years of doing the right thing. The Brotherhood have entwined themselves in all areas of the Australian motorcycle culture, from helping the needy, to helping make motorcycling a safer lifestyle.  From the spiritual to the political, work well done. Keep it up and all the best for the future.” Moose  H61MC 

Campaign Against Anti-Rights Laws in Australia

The members of Brotherhood CMC have always stood with the fraternity of motorcyclists to oppose unfair laws proposed and/or enacted in Australia.  The latest round of anti-rights laws introduced in Queensland are no exception. Please check out our position statement, and the progress of our campaign to raise awareness of these laws among the general public and,  especially, the Christian community on our dedicated campaign page: We Oppose Anti-Rights Laws

Open Meetings

Brotherhood CMC holds its open meetings on the last Wednesday of each month, from February to November. Anyone who wishes to drop by to say g’day or play pool is welcome. It is a pretty low key night where we catch up, talk motorcycles and the associated culture, listen to live music and pray for each other. Everyone is welcome! Our clubhouse is at 59-63 Pitt Street,  South Parramatta. See you there!
