Horeb (1836)

1836 Horeb, Cardiganshire. Great success attended the labours of Samuel Griffiths from his ordination in 1818. Within a few years the congregation had grown from 218 to over 3 times that number so that the chapel had to be extended in 1826. (HEAC iv. 197) ‘But the most powerful revival that was here occurred in 1836. One Sabbath 50 young people aged between 15 and 25 were received, the majority of whom were an adornment to their profession, and a comfort to the church. Some of them remain to this day [1868], but others have fallen asleep. This was a lovely time in Horeb, and the church put on her glorious garments, and God was evidently with his people. The members soon grew to 400.’ (Letter of Evan Davies, dated 30th March 1868, quoted in E. Pan Jones, Cofiant y Parch. Samuel Griffiths, Horeb, Corwen, 1879, p.31)
