Sisters in Song

MIN’s Joyous Choir were the subject of this wonderful video made by students from the 2019 Documentary Production Course at the University of Stirling. We think the video gives great insight into the individual stories of members of the Choir and how being part of the Choir helps them to have a sense of belonging. You can catch the next Joyous Choir performance in Maryhill Park on Sunday 9th June at the Friends of Maryhill Park Summer Fair.

MIN Closed for European Elections May 2019

MIN will be closed from 6pm on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 and all day Thursday 23rd May due to Maryhill Community Centre being used as a Polling Station, this means there will be NO Family Nest or Youth Group on Wednesday and NO Oasis Women’s Group or Joyous Choir on Thursday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, activities will return as normal the following week.
