Stroud - Primitive Methodists (1823)



In the town of Stroud and the neighbouring villages, they preached with their wonted success. They addressed large multitudes in the open-air, and a great religious awakening took place. Great numbers who received their first permanent religious impressions under the zealous and pointed preaching of the missionaries, united with other denominations of Christians, but a goodly number early cast in their lot among the people through whose instrumentality they had received spiritual benefit.
