Goginan (1859)

Goginan Lead Mines, near Aberystwyth.—" The practice of the miners formerly was to meet together to smoke and to talk of things which will not bear repetition; but now there is a change. Prayer-meetings are held daily, even in the mines, far below the surface of the earth, and it is evi­dent that the God of heaven smiles upon them. The clefts of the rocks in which they assemble for prayer and praise, serve to remind them of the cleft in another rock, even Christ, in which the sinner is permitted to behold the Divine glory. There is only one person working in this mine who is not a professor of religion, and his conversion is made a subject of fervent prayer."

From ‘The Welsh Revival’ by Thomas Phillips.
