Baptist Chapel - Pandy'r Capel (1905)



Vale of Clwyd. There is no talk of anything but the revival. Prayer meetings are held in the open-air nearly every night of the week, and on Sunday at Ruthin about 300 came together and held prayer meetings... At Pandycapel, Llanelidan and other places the fire is spreading.

From, 'The Wrexham Advertiser', 21st January 1905.

 

We are a small church in the lower edge of the Merioneth, and Religious Revival influences have felt somewhat widely, abundantly, but they have not yet ended, and we continue to pray, expecting and believing that the Holy Spirit will come yet more powerfully among us. Soon after the Revival broke out, we decided to hold prayer meetings, and we have been on our knees for more than three months, and there is no indication at present that we are giving up. We have had wonderful meetings. Our dear sisters are especially taking part in them, and pulling heaven down in their petitions until we get tempted to ask, ‘Why did this happen', that such bright talents have been hidden for so long from the church… The Rev. W. B. Jones, Penycao, preached here the Friday night before Christmas, and the Rev. E. Williams, Rhos, the subsequent Monday. We were blessed with the divine service of these dear brothers. The fruit of the Spirit is through all our meetings; we have not forgotten the scene Sunday night, February 27th, when the dear pastor, Rev. W. G. Owen (Llifon ) baptised 11, 7 brothers and 1 sister of this church, and 2 brothers and 1 sister of Llanelidan.
