Following a hiatus of 18 months, we are writing to inform you that the British Methodist Youth Choir is now back up and running. You may know that in 2022 the BMYC will be celebrating its 40th anniversary and is now in preparations for rebuilding the choir and the membership.
We have recently taken over as administrator and musical director after being elected at the most recent AGM and are keen to try to recruit as many members as possible to restart this choir, so that we can sing throughout the connexion and truly show the Methodist spirit of 'Born in Song'.
We would be very grateful if you could assist us by promoting the choir in your district by asking that this information is disseminated in the circuits and sharing our contact details for people to make enquires. We currently have an age range of 14-27, but we will shortly be increasing this to an upper age of 30.
Here are some links to our social media sites:
the current website is under development and so doesn't reflect the current status of the choir
Please contact us if you would like any more information. We very much look forward to hearing from the young people in your District who may be interested in joining the British Methodist Youth Choir.
Yours in Christ,
Judith Laycock (Administrator) and Jason McMahon (Musical Director)

The haunting line 'when will they ever learn' always echoes when I see again how our...
