Kilsyth Methodists - Alexander Patrick (1838)



In autumn 1837 several came to the Lord through the ministry of Alexander Patrick and then in April 1838 there was a powerful meeting in someone's home where six gave their lives to Jesus. A woman was converted, then her husband, then her husband's mother, two sons and two daughters. There were 40 converts, but many more went to other churches because there was a significant anti-Methodist sentiment in the town. 

Thanks to Tom Lennie's, 'Land of Many Revivals', pages 319/20.

This was thought by some to be a precursor to the Kilsyth revival.
