Wick (1919-1922)

Some Pilgrim Preachers came from Wales in 1919. A small movement occurred which grew on the return of those fishermen who had been converted in Lowestoft/Great Yarmouth. The Baptist Church, which was then in Union Street, and the Salvation Army were heavily involved. Meetings took place in the open-air and in the Rifle Hall, which was the largest meeting place in the town. Around 500 joined the Salvation Army alone. The morality of the town was considerably changed. This was the home of Jock Troup, and he was involved, particularly in January 1922.

There was also a movement in 1874 and 1905
