Capel Garmon (1839)



‘Very powerful revivals have been experienced in various counties of the North besides the one above [refering to Bethesda and Ebenezer]; some of which I will be pleased to refer to, if I possess sufficient information. We know of powerful revivals in Denbigh, Rhuthin, Mostyn, Colwyn, Llanrwst, Capel Garmon, and other places in Denbigh and Flint. We have heard of revivals as powerful in some parts of Merioneth, where all the heads of families have come to faith. We have heard that a very powerful revival has broken out recently in the old chapel of Llanuwchllyn, and scores, if not hundreds, have been added to the church. I have been informed of a place called Rhyd-y-main, where all the young people in the neighbourhood have given themselves to the Lord and his people. Did you hear that, young people of Anglesey and Arfon—will you be left behind? And we have heard similar news of other places. We also know of powerful revivals in Anglesey...’ (Richard Parry, Y Pentecost Cymreig; neu Sylwadau ar Adfywiad Crefydd mewn Parthau o Ogledd Cymru, Llanrwst, 1840 (Ail Arg.), pp.42-8)
