Hamilton Bikers’ Church will NOT be meeting on Thursday evenings for this winter effective immediately. We will be meeting at the usual location on Sunday mornings at 10:30 with the Crown Point Congregation. Thursday nights will be reserved for training sessions for new road captains, ministry leaders and associate pastors by appointment. If you are interested in being involved in our motorcycle ministry aspect of Bikers’ Church, contact Pastor Ken directly: your first task is to find our website: hamiltonbikerschurch.com as well as a Facebook message to Ken Williams to book an appointment. You can also contact him through the “Contact Us” menu but please give your telephone and email in the message body.
Our 2015 Fall Ride was very successful this year with 93 bikes and 130 participants. With Pastor Ken’s clutch hand in a cast, it was most excellent to have a dozen volunteer road captains leading the groups safely through our very beautiful route. Starting at SBB in Stoney Creek mountain, we rode out into the countryside and followed a wine route on old highway 8. Notable stops were Touchdown Willy’s, the Jordan House, Lotto’s Bar and Grille (who donated a fridge for a door prize) and ended at The Get Together Bar and Grille on Kenilworth Ave. N. for a great meal. After the many door prizes were given out, the North Wall Rider’s Association was awarded the Most Well Represented Club trophy. We raised $1800. toward sending a busload of Hamilton’s City Kidz to camp. We expect to raise the rest of the monies for this at our Spring Swap Meet. Thanks to all who rode with us on September 27!
Our annual visit by City Kidz where we turn over our cheque to send a busload of kids to camp (called the Miracle Sunday Service) was a very nice evening. It’s great that the biker community steps up and helps to raise funds to better the children of the Hamilton area every year! Imagine never having the chance to go camping as a kid!? Now remember what it did for you, or could have!
What a great day for our May 9th Bike Blessing for 2015! With the problem of several clubs and friendship groups double booked and missing, we had a more intimate BBQ and blessing service that nobody wanted to leave quickly! Make sure you dedicate your bike to God before the riding season goes much further!
Thanks to all of our vendors, patrons, and church volunteers of our 2015 Swap Meet! Even with a couple vendors unable to make it because of vehicle breakdowns, we had a full house and the event was very successful and fun! We were able to top up our camp fund beyond all previous years and it was fun to have so many friends visit and most found some bike parts or bling that they came for!
Our Annual Cheque Presentation to City Kidz. Our Fundraising from 2013 raised exactly enough to send a full busload of kids to camp this past summer. This works on a pay it forward fund basis. The 2014 Fall Poker Run raised almost enough for the 2015 busload of kids. Our winter and spring fundraising for this local mission will certainly put us over the top! Thanks to all of you who helped.
Our 2014 Fall Poker Run was well attended by over 100 people. Good food, good fun, and a great ride out to several Royal Canadian Legions. We raised enough money to send almost a full busload of kids to camp for next summer.Thanks to all the clubs and riders who rode with us this year!

What a great ride through four counties. Breakfast at the Rose Garden in Aldershot and dinner proudly sponsored by Go’s Sports Bar in Waterdown. With nearly 100 bikers in this run, we raised three quarters of the money for a full bus load of kids to go to summer camp in 1014!
