Peel Street Baptist Chapel - Accrington (1905)



The Rev J Hatten, Baptist minister, Accrington, a native of Penarth, has been supplied with copies of the ‘South Wales Daily News’ containing reports of the revival in Wales… It is felt that an imitation of the Welsh meetings might prove merely mechanical, and that the only thing to be done there is to prepare the way, ope the gates, and to continually pray that the flood may come. At Mr Hatten’s church last Sunday evening great enthusiasm prevailed and at the after meeting eight decided for Christ, the youngest being 18 and the oldest a man of 60. The meeting was quite spontaneous…
