Mollicar Woods Sing
The Mollicar Woods Sing is a tradition which has now been held
for well over a hundred years. It started back in 1903, when the
choir at Zion Methodist Church, went to Mollicar Woods early in
the morning to practice their singing, without disturbing their
Nowadays, at 7.30am every Whit Sunday, people still come together
to continue the tradition. We may be blessed with sunshine or
get a little damp, but this does not deter the usual, excellent
renditions of well known hymns, resounding through Mollicar, Royd
House and beyond.
Where do we meet?? For the next Mollicar Wood
Sing on the 20th May 2018 at 7.30am, we will be starting in the
field at the bottom of the woods beyond Royd House Farm (off Sharp
Lane). Further information from John and Jo on 304730.
The sing starts in the field at the bottom of Mollicar Woods with
a good selection of hymns. John S introduces the hymns, providing
the vocal keys and conducting the choir of 50 singers/walkers
(and a few hundred midges). The walk then continues into the bluebell
filled Mollicar Woods, gathering at the big beech tree for the
next set of hymns. The little walks between the hymns give a time
to rest one's voice and enjoy the surroundings, or enjoy a time
of fellowship with friends old and new. After the singing at the
big beech tree, the walk then continues up and out of Mollicar
Woods, on to the hillside facing Castle Hill, ready for the last
sing (if everyone has it in them...).
One thing is for sure... be it rain or shine, amongst beautiful
surroundings, it is an amazing way to worship and praise God.
At the end of the sing, a collection is usually held, with all
donations going to Charity. Last year's donations went to Yorkshire
