Salem Welsh Methodist Chapel, Llanarmon-yn-Ial (1875)

Last Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday the usual anniversary services, in connection with the Salem Wesleyan Chapel, in this place, were held. On Sunday and Monday evenings and Tuesday morning, the services were conducted and powerful sermons were delivered by the Rev John Jones, Brymbo, and the Rev Mr Evans, minister of the circuit; and on Tuesday afternoon and evening, the Rev Hugh Hughes, Holyhead, and the Rev John Evans, Liverpool, officiated. The sermons and exhortations throughout the series of meetings were characterised with unusual earnestness, were fervent and pointed, and delivered with a very telling power. Mr Evans, of Liverpool, has imbibed of the spirit and to some extent of the manner of the American evangelists, and his efforts with those of his ministerial brethren were eminently blessed. The services of Tuesday afternoon were conducted in the open air, and at the close all church members, and all those who wished to become united with the Lord's people, were invited to go into the chapel. The names and addresses of 62 persons were taken, who expressed a desire to 'flee from the wrath to come" and after speaking and exhorting the enquirers, Mr Evans closed the meeting with prayer.
