Calfaria Baptist Chapel - Nelson (1905)

The pastor reports - 72 new members and remarkable evidences of the Spirit. From, 'The South Wales Daily News', 14th January 1905.


The Revival has its story here, as in the majority of our country's churches, if the tide is not so high nor the fire so hot as in some churches, yet the tide has been high and the fire hot. We have enjoyed a fervour here when the heavens came very close to the sanctuary. In early November we started conducting prayer meetings every evening, and it was not long before we received clear proofs that God was listening to the prayers of his people. There are 48 additions through baptism. 4 [were baptised] on November 13th; 19 on Christmas Day; 5 on 29th January; 2 on February 21st; 13 on March 2nd; all by the Rev. W. Jones, and 5 on March 20th by the Rev.J.Pugh, Abercynon, since Mr.Jones was suffering from a heavy cold. The total converts bring the increase to 63. We have also baptised by immersion persons who have joined other denominations.
