MAYC launches new logo, name and website
MAYC, the youth section of the Methodist Church, has agreed that it will now be known as "MAYC - Supporting Youth Work in the Methodist Church."
MAYC will no longer known as Methodist Association of Youth Clubs. This acknowledges that in the sixty years since its foundation MAYC has evolved and has moved away from its initial presence in youth clubs to a much wider role, which includes youth development and training courses, campaigns work and various music projects.
MAYC's new logo represents a cross/plus sign, showing the positive effects of being part of MAYC while conveying the central focus of Christ in the work and ministry. As part of these changes MAYC will launch its new integrated website highlighting the range of work being carried out. The comprehensive site will include resources to read and download, campaign and worship material, policy information, ideas-exchange, a national events guide and many useful links to various organisations and groups around the country and beyond. MAYC's site goes live on Youth Sunday 21 November 2004.
MAYC celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2005 and will be marking this milestone with a variety of events including:
6:T Invest - 14 May 2005: a Garden Party at Chester House, London
6:T Intense - 15-17 July 2005: National Weekend, Cliff College, Derbyshire
