For some two years past there has been a special effort made to reach the young people and children attending no place of
worship in the neighbourhood of Rotherhithe. The blessing of God has rested on the labours of his servants, and in about six
months some twenty or thirty youthful hearts were given to the Saviour. By degrees, however, the parents of the children and other friends began to flock to the services, the character of which was necessarily somewhat changed. During the summer, open-air services were held outside the main gate of Southwark Park, crowds gathered week after week, and souls were born to God. Many conversions are known to have taken place, and many other people are now under conviction of sin.
