Durham (1859)

The venerable Robert Garnett, speaking of his experience as a minister in the circuit in 1859, says a mighty spiritual force operated on the minds of the people, and there was an ingathering of hundreds of souls into fellowship with God's people, no fewer than an increase of 800 in the station in three months. M. Garnett's colleagues were William Clemitson, J. Wratson, and J. Elstob. The visitation was far-reaching in its influence, and he has no doubt that the building of Durham Jubilee Chapel and the subsequent division of the circuit into several large and important stations can be traced to that great spiritual awakening.
