In the mid 1930s he was greatly concerned with the welfare and problems of teenagers and youth of the day. He turned his attention to the Young People’s Fellowship, as it was then called, held at Christ Church.
He saw this group as a basis for broadening it into a society for cultural activities, with no particular religious bias, for all denominations, from sixteen years upwards. This resulted in the formation, in the Autumn of 1937 of “The Young People’s Society of Christ Church, Enfield”.
The Society consisted of a Choral Section, Dramatic Section, Orchestral Section and a Social Section. Most of these sections struggled on throughout the war years, but sadly did not survive.
Enfield Choral Society is the sole surviving Section of the original Young People’s Fellowship and has been celebrating its seventieth anniversary in 2008.
