A series of preaching meetings was held at Mold, Flintshire, by the Calvinistic Methodists during Whitsun week in 1815. A number of effective sermons were delivered that left deep impressions on many of the hearers. After one sermon by Edward Williams, Cilcain, it is reported: ‘the place at the end of the sermon was a Bochim—everyone weeping.’ Following the Association, a great number of young people joined the church at Mold, and the churches in the surrounding area. Among them was John Davies, from Nercwys, who became a powerful and popular preacher.
