Get To Know MYCA

  • Who We Are

    Merseyside Yorùbá Community Association (MYCA) is an offshoot of Liverpool Social Yorùbá Club Association.

    The Yorùbá Club was set up in the early 1950s to meet the aspiration of our people in the quest for a place to socialise.

    The new association embraced the word ‘Merseyside’ as opposed to ‘Liverpool’ in order to spread the membership catchment area and this has paid dividends with subscribed members from Liverpool, Skelmersdale, Wirral, Southport, Prescot and Sefton.

  • Our Objectives

    The association in adhering to its set objectives refocused on self-help and supporting each other while promoting family values that are prevalent within the Yorùbá culture.

    The association is unique with no political or religious bias. The welfare of MYCA members is a priority, with particular interest in the health of our elderly members.

  • MYCA Meetings

    The Merseyside Yorùbá Community Association (MYCA) holds monthly meeting on the first Saturday of the month with the exception of January when we have family day.

    The months of August and September are usually dedicated to MYCA Gala Night when we raise funds for the association while promoting different aspects of our culture.
