West Free Church, Helensborough - D L Moody (1874)

On Tuesday Messrs Moody and Sankey addressed two meetings in Helensburgh. The first was held in the West Free Church at half-past three o'clock. An hour and a half before the time announced the church was filled to overflowing, and by the time the service commenced the passages and every available space were occupied. Mr Moody delivered his lecture on "The Blood," and Mr Sankey sang several hymns. The crowd was equally great in the evening in the United Presbyterian church.
After the first meeting, believers and inquirers were asked to remain, when about 600 or 700 occupied the whole body of the church. Mr Moody addressed the anxious, showing that simple trust alone was needed. He then invited those who wished to be spoken with individually to retire into the session house. About 50 went. It was a most solemn meeting, many being
in the deepest distress.

On Wednesday Mr Moody was in Paisley, on Thursday in Greenock, and on Friday again in Paisley. Mr Sankey was in Greenock on Wednesday, in Paisley on Thursday, and in Greenock on Friday.
