Little Gomersal - Bramwell (1794)

As part of the Birstall Circuit Bramwell visited Gomersal.

'When opportunities offered, he occasionally held watch-nights in the circuit in private houses. In one held at Little Gomersal, there appeared to be nothing particular at the beginning. At ten o'clock Mr Bramwell was about to conclude, but he commenced again and continued engaged in prayer until twelve o'clock. At that hour he still felt unwilling to break off.

In a short time a young woman cried aloud for mercy; several more were soon after in deep distress: and before four o'clock in the morning fifteen souls enjoyed a sense of pardon and were made glad in the God of their salvation.

From, 'Memoir of the Life and Ministry of William Bramwell', by James Sigston, p74/75.
