Change of Heart - Souvenir Programme

By Chris Hancock

The 1988 MAYC London Weekend was titled "Change of Heart".

I have acquired a copy of the programme which I have scanned to share with you, just click on the link below.

I have removed the hymn words which are marked as copyright but left the first line so you will know what was sung!

Although I collect things mainly for their historical interest, I always look for some links to my own history and interestingly with this programme I notice that there was a Steel Band "Dayspring" from Earlsdon Methodist Church in Coventry. My Father went to be Superintendent Minister there the following year in 1989.

I also noticed that half of the London Weekend Offering was given to the Methodist Association of Youth Fellowships in Sierra Leone. Which if you have perused the rest of this site you will see that I have a little involvement with the Nixon Memorial Hospital in Sierra Leone. Sadly the great need identified in the programme was intensified three years later when the Sierra Leone civil war broke out.

"Unfortunately" in my badge collection I don't yet have one for 1988 so......

If anyone was there and has any pictures or souvenirs of the weekend I am sure we could get this page updated to include them. Also any information on the people or groups in the programme would, I am sure, be fascinating.

It looks to me as if the Dayspring Steel Band is still in existence and performing some information on them can be found at http://www.dayspringsteelband.co.uk/
