Information for CMA Sussex

Welcome

CMA Sussex : Riders for Christ supports most of the major events in the South of England either as a branch or assisting other branches, most notably the Ace Cafe Brighton Burn-Up and the Brightona rallies in Brighton, which both attract tens of thousands of bikes. We also have had a presence at an Ardingly bike show over the years, but presently we no longer do a display. We have close ties with many of our neighbouring branches. 

In the warmer months [April to September] we enjoy rideouts, outreach evenings and regular 'Mystery Church Runs' to raise awareness amongst local churches. 

In the off-season we gather for fellowship one evening a month, including occasional Bible studies and worship times. We aim to meet 19:30 on the 4th Wednesday at Gateway Baptist Church, Burgess Hill
