Lanehead (1830)

Lanehead was the scene of the outbreak in William Lister's time. It began at the usual weekly prayer meetings, at which a young man who had been at a funeral was converted. At a watch-night service, in the same week, and on the following Sunday, when Mr Lister preached, several more were converted, and for many weeks thereafter crowded services were held nightly, and the society was lifted into a stronger position than it held before.
