Ainon Welsh Baptist Chapel - Abertysswg (1905)

Abertysswg is a comparatively new place, and so Ainon is a young church, only a year and a half old. When the few faithful here were incorporated as a church, they were only about twelve in number, but now they number about one hundred and thirty members. So, it can be seen that the Lord has blessed the efforts of the few with great success. We have been holding prayer meetings here every night for weeks. It is felt that the spirit of the Revival, the living thing itself, is working powerfully on the hearts of the brothers and the sisters, and it is clear that God is answering their prayers on behalf of local listeners and backsliders since forty-nine have already been added to the church during these meetings. Considerable missionary work is also being carried out here, through going out into the streets, &c. [Luke 14:23]The church's great need now is to have a new house of worship, since all that has been built here is a schoolroom, and that is now far too small to accommodate the congregation on a Sunday evening. The above cost £510, and as proof of the church's industry I can state that £230 has already been paid off.
