Walls - Shetland (1839)

A Congregational report in 1839 exulted in the news that their chapel had for the last two years been much favoured of the Lord. During the period about 30 individuals had been added to their fellowship. Indeed the congregation had so much increased that it was found necessary in the summer of 1839 to enlarge the building, although constructed just two years previously. Additions to the chapel complete, the church began holding protracted meetings in an attempt to promote a revival of religion in the neighbourhood. Such was the success of these meetings that the chapel, even in its enlarged state, proved to be too small for the increased Sunday congregations and during the services some had to stand outside the doors and windows.
