Welcome to the official website of God’s Squad Christian Motorcycle Club
Whether you are already part of our God’s Squad community, have seen us on the road or are wondering what it is that we believe and causes us to do what we do, we hope you find something on these pages worth looking at.
2021 is a big year for us. We celebrate fifty years since our colours first originally flew in Sydney and in 2022 we celebrate fifty years of the Melbourne chapter, which has been fully operational for the duration. Last year saw 25 years in the United Kingdom and this year also sees 25 years in New Zealand.
With all of this in mind, we are currently completely reworking the whole website to bring more of our collective story, a deeper insight to our mission and how we understand the call of Jesus of Nazareth in our lives. As we reflect, we know our story isn’t a perfect one by any means, but it is one where we can see the traces of God’s faithfulness over the decades. So, expect to see more history content, more personal stories, more reflections from the bible and other resources, whether written, audio or video. We also plan to be able to offer the content in multiple languages.
For many of us, recent ‘Covid’ days have been tough. We have been separated from our loved ones, our club communities, our support networks and the road has not been travelled as much as we would usually do. But we, like every other motorcycle club, church community, or family unit, will emerge with a resolve to hold close what is most important to us. For us that means things like Jesus still being a friend of the outcast. It means the sentiments of the ancient scriptures that speak of God not wanting to break a ‘bruised reed’ or put out a ‘smouldering wick’, have new resonance, as we all emerge feeling somewhat weary from however the pandemic has been affecting us.
It also means reminding ourselves, that this faith we hold dear, is not held together because of our own sense of self-importance or persistent ability to be right – but because Christ walks towards us with open arms in the same way he travelled the dusty roads of Galilee, with his ragamuffin bunch of misfit mates, making sure the outsiders knew they weren’t forgotten, and those who thought they were the insiders, were reminded it was still all about grace.
In the meantime, thanks for dropping by and looking us up.
Sean, GSCMC International President.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?

This message can also be viewed on our YouTube channel here We are all disciples. And being a disciple is hard work. It is everything but safety and comfort, considering what happened to the disciples that is self-evident. When asking people what faith gives them it is often words like safety, love and comfort that […]
