Mr. John A. Macdonald, of Aberdeen, one of the leaders of Scottish 
Y.M.C.A., writes:— 

" Who could fail to have been impressed by the fine graceful restraint 
with which he handled his audiences, his deft use of the chalks and 
blackboard, and his wonderful Scripture readings from memory .... 
The most lasting impression was made by the freshness and simplicity of 
his teachings, and his complete departure from the stereotyped method 
of approach. Of course, there were those who missed the ordinary 
phraseology of the ordinary appeal .... it is sufficient to know that 
new light broke on mafiy a life. Indeed seldom have we beard of so 
many people benefited from a special effort of this kind. And what 
was more encouraging, there were those who, for the first time, definitely 
surrendered themselves to Christ*" 

The Rev. W. Kaye Dunn is available (any distance) for

The "Ideal Protector 



99 



Highly Polished Aluminium 
Communion Cup Tray 

With Crystal Glass Cups 

PATENTED 

T^HESE Trays are so constructed as to cover and 
•*- protect the wine from atmospheric impurities or 
dust. The cover of the stacked trays protects the 
top tray, and each of the other trays protects the 
one below it. The stack of traysrests on a bottom 
carrying tray which has side handles, so that the 
whole may be safely carried at one journey to and 
from the Church. They can be used as elegant 
single complete Stands, or can be stacked one 
above the other with very handsome effect should 
limitation of space on Communion Table require 
it. In order to accomplish this, each Tray has an 
aperture in the base, enabling the over-handle of 
the Tray beneath to pass through the Tray above. 
Any number of Trays may thus be stacked. 

These Aluminium Trays are highly polished, and 
unlike ordinary aluminium articles, which are of a 
dead colour. Our Trays are as exquisitely lustrous 
in finish as silver plate, whilst only one third the 
weight of that metal. Their original beauty can 
be easily maintained by simply rubbing with a 
soft dry wash leather. 

ADVANTAGES: 

Wine protected from Atmospheric Impurities, 
Great Lightness, Strength, Beauty, 
Non-corrosiveness and Safety from Infection 
involved in the use of a common cup.

London City Mission 

Est. 1835. 258 Agents employed. 

V^OUR SYMPATHY AND SUPPORT are earnestly |= 

Hj -■■ solicited on behalf of this old-established Society, whose ||j 

=s supreme object is to evangelise the poor of the great Metropolis— j 

H chiefly by domiciliary visitation. That much is being done to H 

JH permeate London's millions with the principles of the Gospel Wi 

§= cannot be denied, but the Churches are admittedly unable to =§ 

H adequately cope with the situation. Hence the value of a lay g 

= agency like the London City Mission, which supplements the §| 

|H work of the Churches, as is evidenced by the hundreds of souls = 

Hf harvested for Christ, induced to attend public worship, and =j 

H added to various churches year by year. 

Funds are very urgently needed for the maintenance of [|j 
H the Society's operations throughout the Capital.

A Great Demand !: 



God's chosen people are manifesting great interest 
in the hitherto despised New Testament. The 

BRITISH JEWS SOCIETY 

is finding a great demand for it among the Jewish 
pioneers of Palestine. Rev. S. B. Rohold says: "In a 
manner unknown in any other land, these keen inquirers 
buy the Book. They are inquiring into the claims of 
Christ. Day by day I ask myself what can be done to 
commend Him to them." Will you help to make Him 
known through the work in Palestine, Poland, Austria. 
Danzig, and at Home of 

The British Society for the Propagation 
of the Gospel among the Jews?

L.M.S. in over sixty different languages. Books for the 
foreign mission field are sent out on such terms that no

WILLA5T0N SCHOOL 

NANTWICH, Cheshire. 

WILLASTON, founded as a Public School, was opened in 
1900. The situation is healthy. The buildings are well 
constructed and stand in their own grounds, with good 
playing-fields. The Memorial Hall and Swimming Bath were 
added in 1924, and the Science Laboratory in 1926. , 

The School aims at providing a liberal education on modern 
lines, and is fully equipped for this purpose. The general course, 
before specialization, includes both Latin and Science. Individual 
attention can be given in all forms. Admission to the Preparatory 
is from the age of nine, and to the Big School between twelve 
and fifteen. 

The Religious instruction is unsectarian, in accordance with 
the terms of the Trust Deed. On Sundays there is morning 
Service in the School, and in the evening boys whose parents wish 
it may attend worship elsewhere. 

Willaston is easily reached, being less than four miles from 
Crewe. Inspection is invited. Prospectus, with views, may be had 
from the Head Master, H. Lang Jones, M.A.(Oxon) ; or from the 
Clerk to the Governors, 42, Dover Street, Manchester. 

BISHOP'S STORTFORD COLLEGE 

Headmaster— F. S. YOUNG, M.A. (Oxon.) 

SCHOLARSHIPS up to the value of £50 per annum, and Exhibitions 
and Bursaries up to the value of £30 per annum are awarded each 
year in May. 

The Halley-Stewart Scholarship (founded by Mr. Halley- Stewart) 
value £55 per annum is awarded to the sons of Congregational Ministers 
with preference in favour of those who exercise, or have exercised, their 
ministry in the County of Hertford. 

Full particulars of the Scholarships and Exhibitions may be obtained 
from the Headmaster. 

Attention is particularly called to the fact that there is another 
Boarding School for boys in Bishop's Stortford, which is called Bishop's 
Stortford School, and correspondence intended for the College is frequently 
addressed to Bishop's Stortford School through ignorance of the existence 
of another school, with the result that the correspondents may not come 
into communication with the College at all, or at best do so only after much 
inconvenience and delay. Correspondence intended for the Public School 
must be addressed to Bishop's Stortford COLLEGE, and it is wise to 
address it also to the Headmaster or other official by name.

Burial in populous areas is insanitary, wasteful, a menace to the health of 
the living, and has heen described as our chief relic of barbarism. 



Safeguards the living, and provides for the permanent disposal of the dead 
with Reverence, Simplicity, and Economy. Avoids dangers attending grave- 
side funerals in inclement weather, and offers facilities for a return to the 
ancient custom of Church burial. Cremation has become an established 
fact, not only in this country but all over the civilised world, and is rapidly 
superseding burial in all large centres of population. 

A few extracts from the opinions of people who believe in it : 

REV. A. W. PALMER (Congregational Church, Oakland, Cal.) — 

" I am heartily in favour of cremation ; not only is it sanitary and scientific, but I believe 
it has a distinct religious value in emphasizing the fact that it is the spirit, and not the garment 
which the spirit wears, that is immortal." 
SIR HENRY THOMPSON (cremated 1904) — 

" Never could the solemn and touching words ' Ashes to ashes, dust to dust ' be more 
appropriately uttered than over a body about to be consigned to the retort." 
BISHOP FRASER (1874) — 

" No intelligent faith can suppose that any Christian doctrine is affected by the manner in 
which, or the time in which, this mortal body of ours crumbles into dust." 
REV. JOHN HUNTER, D.D. (late Trinity Congregational Church, Glasgow, 1895) — 

" The sentimental as well as the sanitary argument was also in favour of it. We had only to 
let our imagination play for a little about the subject to see and be persuaded that the process 
could only be called 3weet and tender compared with what went on beneath the earth." 
FRANCES E. WILLARD (late President Women's Christian Temperance Union. Cremated 
1898) — 

" I have the purpose to help forward progressive movements, even in my latest hours, and 
hence hereby decree that the earthly mantle which I shall drop ere long, when my real self 
passes onward to the world unseen, shall be swiftly enfolded in the flames and rendered 
powerless harmfully to affect the health of the living. Let no friend of mine say aught to 
prevent the cremation of my cast-off body. The fact that the popular mind has not come 
to this decision renders it all the more my duty, who have seen the light, to stand for it in 
death, as I have sincerely meant in life to stand for the great cause of poor oppressed 
humanity." 
ELLA WHEELER WILCOX (cremated 1919) — 

" I heartily approve of Cremation. In the first place it is cleanly, in the second place it 
is economical. It helps along Nature." 
MAETERLINCK — 

*' Purified by fire, the memory lives in the heights of a beautiful idea ; and death is naught 
but an immortal birth cradled in flames." 
EDITOR, British Medical Journal (1913) — 

" Having witnessed the process in its minutest details at Golder's Green, we can testify 
that nothing could be more cleanly and more reverent." 
SIR MALCOLM MORRIS (1922) — 

" This method of disposal of the dead is going to do more to save the living than any modern 
movement." 

CI, Crematoria established at Woking, Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool, 
Birmingham, Bristol, Hull, Bradford, Leeds, Leicester, Sheffield, Darling- 
ton, Pontypridd, and in London. The chapels are available to all religious 
denominations, and the beautiful buildings and Gardens of Rest at Wok- 
ing and Golders Green are open for inspection by rambling clubs and the 
general public. 

THE CREMATION SOCIETY OF ENGLAND 

was founded in 1874 by the late Sir Henry Thompson, and incorporated in 

1922 as a body limited by guarantee, without a share capital and not conducted 
for profit. 

d. Capable speakers provided for lectures and debates, and lantern slides 
illustrating the modern cremation movement lent free of charge. 

CL The Council invite applications for free Registration or Membership. A 
single payment of five guineas qualifies as a Life Member and includes 
cremation at death. Write for free booklet about oremation.

Central Heating 

ON THE MOST MODERN, ECONOMICAL & DURABLE SYSTEM 




A South London Church installed by KINNELL'S 

The Minister writes : "Your work has now stood the test of a long and 
severe winter, and it is perfectly satisfactory in every way. You have 
secured uniform heat throughout the building, and the church has never 
been so comfortable. We feel you deserve a word of acknowledgment 
and thanks." 

Old and Wasteful Systems Modernised 

For fifty years we have been designing and fitting our Heating System 

and the services of experienced Engineers are always at the disposal of 

Clients.

2YL IS NOT FAIR 
INTEREST 

TO»DAY 




IF you leave your money 
on deposit or put it in 
some low-paying invest- 
ment, 2 A % (or 3% at the 
most) is all you can expect 
it to earn for you. Now 
that was fair interest fifteen 
years ago but not to-day. 

A WISE PLAN 

If you invest your money 
in the Co-operative Per- 
manent Building Society it 
will earn 5% for you — 
absolutely free of tax or any 
liability to tax. That means 
that you really get 6i% for 
your money — more than 
double the earning power 
of ordinary gilt-edged in- 
vestments. 



Absolute Security 

The money you invest in 
the Co-operative Permanent 
is used to help home builders 
in buying their houses. 
Because your money is used 
for this purpose, and not 
for any speculative venture, 
the value of your shares 
never varies. 

You can withdraw up to 
£10 of your money on 
demand. Larger sums are 
released on a few days' 
notice. 

Shares in the Co operative 
Permanent are of £10 value, 
and you can purchase as 
many as you want outright, 
or you can pay in a little at 
a time, and each complete 
pound invested will earn 
interest. 

Write and get full particulars 
of this sound and profitable 
investment.

PREFACE. 



The changes noted in the previous issue of the Congregational Year 
Book have been continued in the present volume. By vote of the Assembly it 
was decided that the Chairman's Addresses should no longer be published as 
part of the Year Book. These Addresses are published at the time of their 
delivery, and it is hoped that a series of Addresses for a period of years may be 
published in book form from time to time. 

The Council has decided that the photographs of all deceased ministers shall 
in future be inserted free of charge in the obituary section of the book. 

Under the instructions of the Legal Committee the legal information has 
been very carefully revised and brought up to date, and it is hoped that it will 
be found useful to the churches. 

A Statistical Summary discontinued since 1918 will be found after the 
list of ordinations. 

Acknowledgment is here made of the valuable service of all who have con- 
tributed to the production of the present volume. 

22, Memorial Hall, Farringdon Street, London, E.C.4. 
December Zlst, 1927. 



OFFICIAL NOTICE. 

Thk Council of the Congregational Union of England and Wales, under 
whose direction the Congregational Year Book is prepared, do not hold 
themselves responsible for any omissions or errors which may be found in 
the statistics. The greatest care is taken to secure accuracy. Suggestions 
and amendments will be carefully considered. 

Ministers with or without pastoral charge, who wish the insertion of their 
names in the Year Book, should communicate with the Secretary of the 
Association of the County in which they reside, as names are in no case inserted 
which are not thus officially communicated. 

Ministers who, in the course of the year, have removed from one County 
to another too late to join the Association of the County to which they have 
removed before the returns have to be prepared for next Year Book, should 
forward to the Secretary of that Association an official certification of their 
connection with the Association of the County which they have left, that 
he may include their names in his official list. 

§r Early information is solicited on all matters for the next YEAR 
BOOK, to be addressed to the Editor, 22, Memorial Hall, Farringdon Street, 
London, E.C. 4. The insertion of names in the ministerial lists cannot 
be guaranteed if they are not communicated through the proper County 
Secretary by the end of OCTOBER. County Secretaries will please 
note that County Union Lists and the Schedule A should be returned 
NOT LATER than the end of SEPTEMBER. All other matter should be 
in the Editor's hands by the end of OCTOBER. The dates mentioned 
are the latest consistent with the punctual production of the Book. 



The NINETY-SIXTH SPRING ASSEMBLY of the Congregational Union 
of England and Wales will be held in LONDON during the week beginning 
Sunday, May 6th, 1928. 

The March meeting of the Council of the Congregational Union of 
England and Wales will be held in Harrogate on Monday, Tuesday and 
Wednesday, March 19th, 20th and 21st, 1928. 

The EIGHTY-SEVENTH AUTUMN ASSEMBLY will be held in LEEDS

PREAMBLE. 

1. Certain powers and duties belong to the individual Church in self-govern- 
ment under the Headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, due regard being had to 
the interests of other Churches of our own and other denominations. For 
example : The reception and dismissal of members ; the discipline necessary 
to preserve purity of communion ; the election of pastor and deacons ; the 
order of worship ; financial arrangements ; and all that concerns the internal 
administration of the Church. 

2. Certain duties and responsibilities concern Congregational Churches as 
a whole, and these can be most effectively fulfilled by a union of Churches. 
For example : Congregational Church extension, and the promotion of mis- 
sionary work at home and abroad ; the assistance of Churches needing support ; 
the introduction to the ministry of properly qualified and suitable men ; the 
support of Congregational Colleges in the training of Ministers ; the admission 
of npne but worthy persons to the privileges of the Denomination and of 
The Union ; the provision of facilities for the settlement and removal of 
Ministers ; the adequate support of the ministry ; the assistance, when neces- 
sary, of Ministers of good standing disabled by age or infirmity ; the bringing 
of Congregational societies and institutions into closer connection with The 
Union and with each other, and the brotherly co-operation with other Christian 
denominations in the extension of the Kingdom of God. 

This Preamble is not exhaustive, and it should be interpreted in the widest 
sense. — The aim of this Constitution is to enable Congregational Churches collec- 
tively to fulfil their responsibilities in relation to such questions as are indicated 
in the second paragraph.

Union to another county may be provisionally returned by the Secretary of 
the County Union into the area of which they enter, although they are not yet 
members thereof, provided that the Secretary of the County Union in which 
they were last included shall have stated in writing that letters of commenda- 
tion are likely to be granted.* 

(iv.) Ministers or students accepting a call after the annual meeting may in 
like manner be provisionally returned by the Secretary. 

(D) Aided Churches. 
In the interest of the Aided Churches it is required as an absolute condition 
of grant that no invitation be given to any person to accept the pastorate, or 
even to supply the pulpit with a view to the pastorate, without the approval 
of the Executive of the County Union. 

(E) Ordination and Recognition Services. 
Inasmuch as the Ordination or Recognition of any person as a Pastor is a 
matter deeply affecting the welfare of all the Churches, no such Ordination 
or Recognition Service shall take place without the concurrence and approval 
of the County Union expressed by the presence of one or more appointed 
representatives. No ministerial member of a County Union should take 
part in, or otherwise sanction, the Ordination or Recognition of a pastor of 
any Congregational Church without first communicating with the Secretary 
of the County Union, and ascertaining that such person is duly qualified. 

(F) In the event of any difficulty arising regarding the interpretation or 
application of the foregoing Rules, or in the event of any conflict of opinion 
between authorities concerned, the decision shall rest with the Special Com- 
mittee of the Congregational Union of England and Wales, with a right of 
appeal to the next meeting of the Council. 

(G) In no case shall the Editor or the Council be bound to insert a name 
in the Year Book, whether such name has been officially authorised by the 
County Association or Union or not, but the Special Committee may, upon 
such evidence as it shall consider sufficient, direct that any name be inserted 
in or excluded from, the Year Book, or from any of the lists. All the decisions 
of the Special Committee under the powers given by these rules shall be subject 
to an appeal to the next meeting of the Council of the Union by any person or 
body affected. 

It is recommended — 

(1) That all candidates for the Ministry, prior to appearing before the 
College authorities, shall receive fuller commendation than is now customary. 
It is suggested that candidates in addition to receiving the commendation of 
an individual Church or Minister, should be required to secure the approval 
of the local County Union acting through its Executive or its district Committee. 

(2) That County Unions should exercise the greatest care in the granting 
and acceptance of transfers. 

(3) By recognised Colleges shall be understood those set forth on pp. 92-93 
of the 1923 Congregational Year Book, i.e. New, Western, Yorkshire United, 
Cheshunt, Hackney, Lancashire, Mansfield, Nottingham, Carmarthen, Brecon, 
Bala-Bangor, Scottish Congregational College. 

It is considered that the question of Ministers of the Countess of Huntingdon's 
Connexion, whose churches are not in the Congregational Union, is met by B (iii.). 

* The responsibility for seeing that this is clone rests upon the Minister concerned, not 
upon the Secretary.

EXAMINATIONS. 

A. List Examinations are on the last Tuesday and Wednesday in September. 

B. List Examinations on the last Tuesday in September. 

*i, Il ^ vieW ° f the fact that <l uestions are often asked by men who wish to enter 
the Congregational Ministry by means of the above examinations the following 
statement has been drawn up : — 

1. The regular method of admission to the ministry is by the full course 
of training at one of our recognised Colleges. It is expected that men 
under the age of 28 will take such a College Course. 

2. Admission to the ministry by means of the above examinations 
must not be regarded as an alternative method of entrance • it is for 
exceptional cases only,%hen for special reasons, a man is unable to receive 
the ordinary course of training. 

3. In such special cases the first step to be taken is to qualify for 
admission to List B in accordance with the following Rules. 

To obtain Admission to List B. 

Before a man settles in pastoral charge he must satisfy the County Union 
that he has been a member of a Congregational Church for at least six months, 
and must give satisfactory evidence as to Christian character, general fitness 
u lii W i° rk and knowled g e and acceptance of Congregational principles, 
lie shall then complete a probationary period of one year in charge of a church 
or churches to the satisfaction of a County Union, after which permission may 
be given him to proceed to the List B examination in the following September 

The Secretary of the County Union will provide each candidate with the 
Syllabus of subjects for examination and directions for guidance in study. 

In cases where evidence of satisfactory educational equipment can be given 
the Special Committee, on the recommendation of the County Union, may 
modify or dispense with the examination aforesaid. 

Tbansfbe from List B to List A. 

A man who wishes to pass from List B to List A must furnish evidence that 
he has received a call from, and has exercised the pastoral office in a Congrega- 
tional Church or Churches with the sanction and approval of the County 
Union for at least three years. (The time required to qualify for admission 
to List B is counted as part of the three years probationary period.) 

The examinations are three in number, one to be taken each year the first 
to be taken not earlier than the fourth year. The probationary period must 
be understood to extend throughout the whole course ; the consent of the 
County Union is therefore required for each successive examination 

The shortest period qualifying for admission to List A in accordance with 
the above rules is six years. 



A SHORTER COLLEGE COURSE IN LIEU OF THE CONGREGATIONAL 
UNION EXAMINATIONS FOR LIST A. 

(a) It is expected that men under the age of 28 take the full College Course. 

(b) After a man has served three years' probation, if the County Union 
recommend him, the Committee will be prepared to accept a three years' 
Course at a College m lieu of Congregational Union Examinations. 

Jl! ? h u de8Cri P tion for such students in the Congregational Year Book 
shall be The Congregational Union and College."

instructed to report in future, under the name of College or Institute, no other 
institution except a University or College affiliated with a University, or a 
recognised Theological College. The name of the University or College, if it 
be a degree-giving Institution, shall be given in those cases only where a degree 
has been obtained. Persons desiring to have their academical degrees indicated 
in the Alphabetical List shall produce the official testamur of the degree-giving 
Institution. In all cases of doubt the Literature Committee shall have power 
to decide. The Editor, while not responsible for the omission of any degree, 
requests the holders of degrees to give him at least six months' notice of their 
desire to have their degree indicated. 

15. — -The Editor shall in future insert no University Degree, or Literary 
Distinction other than a University Degree, without also stating the authority

nations conducted in this country shall not be inserted. And no Literary 
Distinction shall be inserted (with the exception of the Fellowship of the Royal 
Society), unless a written Examination shall have accompanied the subscription

SCHEME FOR PROVINCES AND MODERATORS AS AMENDED 
AND ADOPTED BY THE ASSEMBLY AT ITS MEETING HELD IN 
LONDON, MAY 14th, 1924. 

I. That Provinces be formed by the grouping together of County Unions 
and that to such Provinces Moderators, either ministerial or lay, be appointed. 
The question whether any Province is to become an administrative area is 
left to the judgment of the counties concerned. 

II. The general duties of Moderators shall be : — 

(a) To stimulate and encourage the work of the Denomination within 
their own Provinces, and to act as the friends and counsellors of Ministers 
and Churches. 

(6) To act as advisers with regard to all financial assistance from 
denominational funds. 

(c) To assist Churches and Ministers in all matters connected with 

Ministerial Settlements and Removals by personal action and by constant 

and regular conference with one another. This is not to be understood 

as excluding other means of effecting changes of pastorates, but it is 

desirable that the Moderators should be kept informed of any introductions 

effected so as to avoid overlapping. 

N.B. — Whereas it may be considered fitting that the Moderator attend the 

Ordination, Induction or Recognition Services in his Province, his presence 

shall not be deemed essential, nor shall he preside ex officio, but only when 

invited to do so. 

III. To make the work of the Moderators effective they should act in 
co-operation with the County Union Executives. To secure this it is highly 
desirable that each Moderator be elected a member of the County Union 
Executives concerned. The Moderators shall be members of the Council of 
the Congregational Union of England and Wales. 

IV. In each Province a Provincial Committee, consisting of representatives 
of all the County Unions in the group, shall be formed by the County Unions 
concerned, which Committee should meet regularly with the Moderator for 
the purposes of general consultation and co-operation, and to secure as far 
as possible a uniform policy throughout the County Unions. 

No Provincial Committee is to exceed twenty-one in number, and each 
County Union is to have at least one representative. 

V. The appointment of Moderators shall rest with the Assembly of the 
Congregational Union of England and Wales, aoting for the purposes of 
nomination through a joint Committee consisting of 

(a) Representatives of the Province, not exceeding fourteen in number, 
appointed by the Provincial Committee, each County Union having at 
least one representative, and 

(6) Representatives of the Congregational Union of England and 
Wales, not exceeding nine in number, to be appointed annually by the 
Council, on the nomination of the General Purposes Committee. 

Before being submitted to the Assembly of the Congregational Union of 
England and Wales the nomination made by the Joint Committee with regard 

xli 



xlH SCHEME FOR PROVINCES AND MODERATORS. 

to a particular Province shall be confirmed by a Joint Meeting of the Assemblies 
or by a joint meeting of the Executives of the County Unions concerned (as 
may be determined by the Provincial Committee), or where so desired by the 
Provincial Committee acting in their name, 

VI. The General Purposes Committee shall have the general administration 
of the scheme, and shall report annually to the Council. 

VII. Moderators shall be appointed for periods of five years. 

VIII. The stipends of Moderators shall be provided by the Provinces and 
the Congregational Union of England and Wales jointly. 

The method for raising the proportion from the Provinces is by the increase 
of the affiliation fee from the Churches by 7s. 6d. per fifty members or part of 
that number. 

IX. Inasmuch as certain large areas of the country already possess secre- 
taries who devote their whole time to the service of the churches, such areas, 
if they so desire, may be deemed to be Provinces for the purposes of this scheme, 
and these Provinces may nominate their own secretaries for recognition as 
Moderators by the Congregational Union of England and Wales. In such 
cases the Province shall be responsible for the entire stipend of its Moderator. 

That it be left to the General Purposes Committee to make any readjustment 
necessary in any Province and to report to the Assembly.

churches where they are needed, whether in rural or urban districts. (3) In helping toward 
the maintenance of Lay-Pastors and Evangelists, and otherwise assisting evangelistic work 
in spiritually destitute places.

visitation of Churches and Missions for information and for brotherly help and spiritual 
stimulus. This is now done mainly by the Moderators. (2) Grants through the County 
Unions towards Ministerial Maintenance, and Home Missionary Work in town and country. 
(3) Special Grants from the Twentieth Century Fund towards " New Pastorates " and 
"Emergencies." These special funds have done invaluable service but are nearly exhausted. 
Their replenishment is earnestly desired. (4) Assistance in promoting Lay-Preaching and 
he training of Lay-Preachers. 

The funds of this Society are entirely distinct from those of County Unions. 

Congregational collections or sacramental offerings, as well as personal subscriptions and

thereupon lapse and determine ; but she shall not be disqualified 
from again applying should she once more become a widow.

of an Annuity, the Committee shall have power to withdraw or 
suspend the same. 

The Annuities. 

8. — The Annuity shall be made either for life or for such other period as 
the Committee may decide. The amount of the Annuity shall be determined

The objects of the Society shall be to provide for the relief or maintenance 
of the members in their old age by the provision of annuities payable to the 
members under the scale and conditions hereinafter appearing. 

The Fund. 

The Fund shall consist of the capital sum of £30,000 subscribed by the 
Congregational Denomination for the objects set out in the above Clause and 
such other capital sums as may be provided for the same objects. 

The Fund, other than the sum contributed by the members, shall be applied 
by the Committee towards the provision, or increase, of the annuities pro- 
vided under the Rules, in such manner and to such extent as the Committee 
shall from time to time determine. 

Membership. 

The membership shall be divided into two Departments, to be called Depart- 
ment I and Department II. 

Department I shall consist of Congregational Evangelists and Lay Pastors 
whose names appear on List B of the Congregational Union of England and 
Wales for the year 1922.

on List " B," but such annuity shall in no case exceed £40. 

(II.) Every member in Department II shall contribute a sum of £3 per 
annum towards the provision of an annuity in accordance with the scale set 
out-' in the Schedule annexed. Such annuity shall be payable on his retire-

not before he shall attain the age of 65 years. 

(III.) In the event of the decease of a member before he shall attain the age 
of 65 years, the contributions paid by him shall be refunded to his widow, or, 
if there be no widow, to his children, or if there be no widow nor children, to 
such person or persons as he shall nominate under Rule 8. 

(IV.) In the event of the decease of any member after the date upon which 
he shall have become entitled to the payment of an annuity, the contributions 
paid by him, less the amount paid to him by way of annuity, shall be refunded 
to his widow, or if there be no widow, to his children, or if there be no widow 
nor children, to such person or persons as he shall nominate under Rule 8. 

(V.) In the event of the retirement of any member from his pastorate or 
from his employment as a Congregational Evangelist, owing to permanent 
mental or physical incapacity, before he shall have attained the age of 65 years, 
there may be paid to him such an annuity as in consideration of the length of 
his service and the state of his health the Committee may determine.

(VI.) In the event of any member being transferred from " List B " of the 
Congregational Union of England and Wales to " List A," the Committee shall

RlDEE TO THE RESOLUTION OF DISARMAMENT. 

And this Assembly profoundly regrets that the Governments of the British 
Empire have, in the recent Imperial Conference, together refused to sign the 
aforesaid Article 36 (already signed by France and twenty -three other Powers) 
and have given no grounds for this momentous decision beyond stating that 
this fundamental measure which lies at the base of all sincere endeavours 
after law-ordered peace is " premature." 

And this Assembly calls on all fellow subjects throughout the Empire to 
join in protesting against this backward stop. 

The Council Report (posted to delegates) was presented by the 
Secretary and adopted. 

The following Resolution was moved by the Rev. C. Fleming 
Williams. 

Seconded, and carried : — 

On the Growing Spirit of Conciliation in Industry. 

In view of the serious injury to human welfare — industrial, financial, social 
and moral — inflicted by the repeated conflicts between Capital and Labour — 
whether through strikes or lock-outs — we heartily rejoice in the increasing 
indication of a desire on the part of both employer and employed to deal with 
their problems in a more conciliatory spirit and to create such an organisation 
for consultation as may make that spirit practical and effective. We are con- 
vinced that when men are brought together in a proper spirit and with proper 
methods, even though they are acutely divided, their difficulties can be removed 
and a lasting and fruitful peace can be secured. Without desiring to discuss 
the merits or demerits of the Trade Union Bill we regret that its introduction 
should have been made the occasion for a recrudescence of bitterness and 



6 ANNUAL ASSEMBLY. 

strife, and we wish it had been possible that, before a Bill was introduced, an 
impartial conference had been summoned to discuss any alteration that might 
be considered necessary in Trade Union law, and so a measure of agreement 
had been secured. 

The following Resolution was moved by the Rev. R. J. Evans, 
M.A. 

Seconded by the Rev. B. Vaughan Price, M.A., LL.B., and 
carried : — 

On the Continued Housing Shortage. 

This Assembly desires to congratulate the Municipalities and other local 
authorities which have made provision for the housing needs of the working 
classes on the work they have already done and on their continuing efforts ; 
and urgently recommends its members to stimulate them in their respective 
localities. 

At the same time, whilst the present high cost of building continues and until 
wholesale clearance schemes can be carried out, we would call public attention 
to the urgent need for supplementary Housing Schemes organised on a volun- 
tary and partly philanthropic basis, to erect new houses at less than economic 
rents or improve existing houses in the older and poorer quarters of our large 
towns ; and we invite all Christians, so far as they may be able, to share in 
the various existent schemes for the co-operative ownership of such houses, 
and to promote further schemes on similar lines. 

Further the Assembly would urge those whom it represents to encourage 
local authorities to make full use of the powers confirmed by the Housing 
Act of 1925.

Congregational Union of England and Wales. 



REPORT OF THE COUNCIL FOR 1926-7. 

The series of Reports which follow were discussed at the Council 
Meetings in Buxton in March and were adopted for presentation 
to the Assembly. They represent a vast amount of work on the 
part of the ministers and laymen who form our different Committees, 
and the Denomination owes more than it realises to the busy men 
who give so generously of their time and thought to the welfare of 
our churches. 

The Union is now relieved of the great financial anxieties which 
a few years ago rested like a heavy burden upon its work. At the 
Memorial Hall itself there have not only been changes in the per- 
sonnel, but a thorough reorganisation of method. The Rev. 
Maldwyn Johnes took up his office at the beginning of the year, and 
has already proved himself of the greatest value in all departments 
of the Union's work. Mr. Harold Simpson, the new Financial 
Secretary, has made himself master of the financial affairs of the 
Union, and has brought greatly increased efficiency to the spending 
departments. Mr. Hancock, who has served the Church Aid Society 
for so many years, retired at the end of March, and his long service 
to the smaller churches through the Church Aid Society has earned 
the gratitude of all. The work that he has done will now be divided 
between the Rev. Maldwyn Johnes and Mr. Simpson. 

The industrial depression of 1926 made it a black year in the 
record of many of our churches. The problem of ways and means 
was a pressing one, while, at the same time, the distress at their 
doors made new claims upon them. The churches responded to 
the challenge with a good heart and the Denomination has reason 
to be proud of the quiet, steady devotion of ministers and people 
under trying circumstances. It is earnestly to be hoped that the 
cloud has now definitely passed from the country and that the 
shadow of want will be removed from so many homes. 

The series of Reports which follow deserve careful reading on the 
part of all interested in the welfare of the Denomination. 

Particular attention is drawn to the reply which the Council 
suggests should be sent to the Lambeth Appeal. It will be recalled 
that the Federal Council of the Free Churches representing all the 
Free Church Denominations has already made a reply to that Appeal, 



and the Denominations are now making their own separate replies 
giving their own distinctive points of view, and the draft included 
in this Report was the subject of very careful examination and close 
discussion at the Council meeting at Buxton. 

Another Report which may be mentioned is that of the Church 
Extension Committee. The problem of Church Extension in the 
newly growing districts is one that concerns all Congregationalists, 
and there is no more urgent problem which faces us at the present 
time than the task of so distributing our work as to bring within 
its scope the great new districts which are springing up all over 
the country. 



REPORTS. 



Reply of the Congregational Union of England and Wales 
to the Lambeth Appeal. 

We, the Delegates of the Congregational Churches of England and 
Wales in session assembled, send greetings to the Archbishops and 
Bishops of the Anglican Church, and desire to place on record our 
sincere appreciation of the Christian spirit which prompted their 
Appeal for Unity and our lively gratitude for the same. We have 
delayed making any formal reply so long as the official conferences 
arising out of the Appeal were being continued. Now that they 
are over for the time being, we feel it incumbent upon us to make 
some comments on the situation as we understand it. 

1. We reciprocate with all earnestness the longing of our Anglican 
friends for a closer Christian unity. We, too, believe that God wills 
fellowship among Christian people, although we have more hope 
of a union based on the cultivation of friendship among differing 
Christian communions than of a union based on any attempt to 
embrace them all within one uniform system or organisation. We 
cannot regard the existence of separate Churches, or the variety 
in the expression of Christian faith and life for which they stand, 
as necessarily contrary to the mind of Christ : what is entirely 
contrary is the spirit of sectarian jealousy and dissension which has 
too often animated Churches in the past and must assuredly be 
abandoned on every hand before union can become possible. 

2. We recognise that there can be no real union of fruitful 
fellowship apart from some agreement on the fundamentals of our 
Christian faith ; but we must once more record our conviction that 
this cannot be secured by the imposition of creeds or formularies. 
We believe that there is a better way — the way of freedom under 
the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And while accepting the Scriptures 



10 

as the general rule and standard of faith, and being willing that the 
united Church should make declaration of its faith from time to 
time for the help of its members and the information of those 
without, we would not make such declaration binding upon any, 
believing as we do that God has always more light and truth to 
break forth from His Word. 

3. We recognise that the ministry of any united Church must 
be a ministry duly authorised by the whole Church through its 
representatives. We agree that this authorisation should take the 
form of ordination — as the recognition and ratification of the call 
of God to the ministry, and as the commissioning of the man so 
called, after due preparation, to work in a particular sphere. We 
cannot, however, agree that episcopal ordination should be essential 
to the exercise of the ministry in any united Church of which we 
as Congregationalists are to form part. The theory that only 
through the laying on of a bishop's hands can a ministry be made 
valid runs counter to our deepest convictions. If the office of 
bishop is to be retained in any united Church, we agree that it should 
be made purely elective and representative. We wish, moreover, 
that it were possible to avoid the use of this historic term, which, 
just because it is historic, cannot fail to suggest and perpetuate 
ideas as to authority and the transmission of grace from which we 
entirely dissociate ourselves. 

4. We regret the ambiguity which has crept into the discussions 
on the status of existing Free Church ministries, owing to the pro- 
posal that Free Church ministers should " receive their commission 
to minister to the whole fellowship through episcopal ordination." 
To us, this proposal does not seem to harmonise with the expressed 
belief of the Lambeth Conference that our ministries " possess 
spiritual reality," and have been manifestly blessed and owned 
by the Holy Spirit as effective means of grace " ; nor with the 
subsequent admission that they are " real ministries of Christ's 
Word and Sacraments in the Universal Church." 

We should be prepared to welcome some solemn act of mutual 
recognition ; but the proposal of ordination sub conditione cannot 
be accepted by us. 

5. We Congregationalists are by conviction Protestant Free 
Churchmen. We regard the Church of Jesus Christ as a spiritual 
body, under His sole Headship ; and we feel the State establish- 
ment and control of any Church to be a usurpation. We are 
sincerely anxious to know whether such a united Church as the 
Appeal suggests would be a free Church, in the sense of enjoying 
complete spiritual autonomy ; and whether it would continue to 
be loyal to the broad principles of the Reformation. Before any 
further steps could be taken, we should require more definite 
assurance on both these points. 



11 

6. We thank God for the spirit which was manifested in your 
Appeal. Like yon, we desire, and we are oucselves prepared for, 
the fullest possible co-operation in the work of the Kingdom of God 
between all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ. We, too, long 
for a deeper understanding, a closer sympathy, and a wider fellow- 
ship, especially in the solemn acts of worship, between all branches 
of the now divided Church. We therefore plead for closer co- 
operation along the lines of the Lambeth Appeal and in the spirit 
which it breathes ; for we are very confident that only by such 
means will be created that temper and atmosphere which can make 
re-union real and fruitful. In all the Churches people need to learn 
to work and worship together, and to find in their realisation of 
common values, the way to unity and peace. We unite with you 
in humble, earnest prayer that we may all more clearly discern 
what is the mind of Christ, entirely desiring in this, as in every 
other matter, to be guided by the Holy Spirit of God. 



GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE REPORT. 

Chairman : Sir James Carmichael, K.B.E. 

Y ice-Chairman : Mr. E. Hindle, J.P. 

Elections. — Sir James Carmichael, K.B.E., was re-elected Chair- 
man, and Mr. E. Hindle, J.P., Vice-Chairman of the Committee, for 
the year. 

Spring Meetings. — The year 1926 will be remembered for the 
grave industrial troubles which involved the whole country in 
distress and anxiety. The outbreak of the general strike occurring 
at the time originally fixed for the holding of the May Meetings 
made it necessary to postpone the Meetings at the last moment. 
A shorter series of meetings was held in June which, considering 
the alteration in plans, were very well attended. 

The Chairman. — The health of the Chairman, the Rev. F. W. 
Newland, has been a matter of great concern during his year of 
office, and deep sympathy has been felt with him in the limitation 
it has set to his labours. It was gratifying that the Chairman 
should be able to give his address in June, and the Committee 
earnestly wishes him complete restoration of health and strength. 
The Rev. Arthur Pringle acted as Chairman in Mr. Newland's absence, 
and the General Purposes Committee wishes in the name of the 
whole Union to put on record its deep sense of gratitude to him for the 
great services he rendered both at the Spring and Autumnal Sessions. 

Dr. J. D. Jones. — For the greater part of the year covered by 
this Report, Dr. J. D. Jones has been absent on a visit to Australia, 
New Zealand, and Travancore, doing valuable work in encouraging 



12 

our churches in the Dominions and our workers in the Mission Field. 
The Committee recognises the great importance of these visits as 
forming a strong link between the churches in the Motherland and 
across the seas. 

The Staff. — During the year the work of reorganising the staff 
has been proceeded with. Mr. Stancliff, who for forty-nine years 
served the Union, has retired from his work, although the Union 
temporarily retains his services as editor of the Year Book. Oppor- 
tunity was taken at the Spring Meetings to express the great regard 
and affection in which Mr. Stancliff is held, and a gift which had 
been subscribed to by Congregationalists all over the country was 
presented to him by the Secretary. Mr. Stancliff responded in a 
speech which will long be remembered by all who heard it. 

Another retirement which takes place in the spring of 1927 is 
that of Mr. Hancock, who for nearly forty-two years has served 
the Union in connection with the Church Aid Society and latterly 
with the Central Fund as well. Mr. Hancock has been a loyal and 
devoted servant of the Union, and suitable provision has been 
arranged for his retirement. 

Recommendation. — The Committee recommend that Mr. Stancliff, 
Mr. Minshull and Mr. Hancock be elected Life Members of the 
Union as a mark of appreciation. 

Mr. Simpson took up his duties as Financial Secretary in July, 
and while special reference to this appointment will be made in 
the report of the Finance Committee, it is gratifying to record that 
already great steps have been taken towards co-ordinating the 
work of the different Departments, and by a readjustment of rooms 
the Finance Department now includes the Central Fund, Church 
Aid and Chapel Building sections of the work, and in the near 
future the Superannuation Fund for ministers and widows will be 
brought under the same administration. 

/The Sub-Committee appointed to deal with the appointment of 
an assistant to the Secretary of the Union reached a unanimous 
decision in the recommendation -that the Rev. Maldwyn Johnes, of 
Sandown, Secretary of the Hampshire Union, should be invited to 
fill the position. Mr. Johnes' acceptance of the invitation was 
announced in October, and he was enthusiastically received by the 
Assembly at Leicester. 

The Committee, with these new appointments in mind, looks 
forward to increasing effectiveness in the administration of the 
affairs of the Union. 

Circulating Libraries. — A generous gift by the Chairman of the 
General Purposes Committee has made it possible to inaugurate a 
scheme of Circulating Libraries in a large majority of the Counties, 



13 

through which some of the newer books are brought within the 
reach of the poorer ministers. The Counties are working in close 
co-operation with head- quarters, and already favourable reports 
are being received of the working of the scheme. 

Coming Meetings. — Invitations have been received during the 
course of the year to hold the Council Meetings in 1927 at Buxton, 
and in 1928 at Harrogate. An invitation has also been received 
from Newcastle to hold the Autumnal Session of the Union there 
in 1927. All these invitations have been cordially accepted.

J. H. Whitley, M.P., Rev. Thomas Yates. 

Alterations at the Hall. — During the year the Sub-Committee of 
the Memorial Hall Trustees has been considering suggestions for 
making the premises more suitable for the head-quarters of the 
Denomination. Consideration of detailed plans is in progress and 
it is confidently anticipated that during 1927 considerable progress 
will be made in the provision of better accommodation. 

United Navy, Army and Air Force Board. — The work of the Board 
in organising religious provision for members of the federated 
churches in the three Services has been following a normal course 
during the year. The most sensational event to be recorded is in 
the loss by fire of the United Board Institute at Portsmouth. The 
fire was attended with serious danger to the inmates, but fortunately 
no fatality occurred. The site covered by the old institute has 
been sold and the insurance money, together with the proceeds 
of the sale, has made it possible to purchase a more suitable 
block of premises at Southsea, where the work is being carried 
on under the leadership of the Rev. W. M. Yorwerth with increasing 
success. 

* The Board wishes to express its great appreciation of the work 
that the Chaplains in the three Services are doing, and also of the 
work of the ministers who in different areas act as Officiating 
Chaplains. 

The work of the Board depends for its effectiveness upon the 
churches sending information when any of their young men join 
the Forces so that they may be looked up immediately by some 
representative of the Board. Omission to do this frequently results 
in loss to the Denomination. 

Congregational Union Examinations. — The following are the results 
of the Congregational Union Examinations for the year, and in 
submitting them the Council desires to thank the Examiners for 
their services.

Moderators' Report. 
Chairman : Rev. J. D. Jones, C.H., M.A., D.D. 

Terminable Pastorates. — Early in the year we were instructed by 
the Council to give some consideration to the question of Terminable 
Pastorates, that is, to discuss the desirability or otherwise of 
suggesting a method by which a minister's invitation to a pastorate 
should be for a limited and stated period, the hope being that by 
such means changes of pastorate might be facilitated, and the 
difficulties and disappointments of the present system, or lack of 
system, minimised. 

The desirability of investigating any method for dealing more 
effectively with present difficulties is continually in our minds. 
Invitations to pastorates are usually given for an indefinite period, 
but occasions occur where we are confronted with the desire of 
churches to invite a minister for a limited time, and sometimes this 
has been done. We are not altogether happy about these individual 
and isolated attempts to avoid the difficulties of the present system. 
The attempt to carry out a new policy in this piecemeal fashion is 
calculated to inflict hardship upon ministers, and is not without 



16 

serious risk of causing division in our churches. Except possibly 
in the case of our older ministers, who may be willing to accept such 
an arrangement, we feel that it is unfair to ask a minister to agree 
beforehand to terminate his pastorate on a given date when there is 
no regular system that will ensure his being invited to another 
pastorate when the agreed period comes to an end. In our opinion, 
any modification of the present system must be of general, and not 
merely individual application. 

We have not arrived at any agreement among ourselves about 
the advisability of making any change in the present system. Our 
considered judgment upon the whole matter is that it requires 
further careful and exhaustive investigation. It is a question 
of such importance, and involves changes of such fundamental 
significance both to ministers and churches, that we recommend 
to the Council the setting up of a special committee or com- 
mission to collect information, to examine the matter in all its 
bearings, and to report. Any knowledge and experience possessed 
by the Moderators will, of course, be at the disposal of such a 
commission. The Council has approved the recommendation of 
the Moderators and has appointed a Commission of Inquiry as 
follows : Kevs. Luke Beaumont, H. C. Carter, M.A., W. Griffith 
Jenkins, B.A., Prof. E. J. Price, M.A., B.D., A. Pringle, Messrs. 
A. E. Glassey, Owen Kentish and A. Owen Ward, J.P. 

Settlements and Removals. — Meanwhile we are doing our best to 
facilitate changes of pastorate according to the usual methods of 
the Congregational Churches. We believe we have been able to 
do effective work in this direction, and that our assistance has been 
valuable both to churches and ministers. On some occasions we 
have been able to expedite a settlement so that the perils and 
difficulties of an interregnum period have been completely avoided, 
and before one minister has left his successor has been invited. We 
see no reason why such a happy solution should not more frequently 
be found. 

\Ve deeply sympathise with those ministers who, during the past 
year, have not found the change of pastorate often so urgently 
needed and desired. We believe that they appreciate our diffi- 
culties. We are continually mindful of their anxiety, and are ready 
to welcome any action that will help towards the desired end. In 
the amended scheme for Provinces and Moderators adopted by the 
Assembly in May, 1924, it is stated that the work of the Moderators 
is not meant to exclude " other means of effecting changes of 
pastorate," and it adds : " It is desirable that the Moderators should 
be kept informed of any introductions effected, so as to avoid over- 
lapping." If we emphasise this, it is solely in the interests of the 
ministers and churches concerned. The well-meant attempt to 
help one minister has often led to the frustration of the hopes of 



17 

another. Cases could be mentioned where everything seemed 
favourable to the settlement of a minister urgently desiring a change 
of pastorate, when the whole situation has been changed by the 
friendly introduction of another name. This has frequently caused 
a divided vote in the church meeting, and both names have had to 
be dropped in the interests of the unity of the church. In this 
delicate and difficult matter we can only hope to succeed if our 
efforts are co-ordinated to a much greater degree than at present 
obtains, and much disappointment would be avoided if the 
Moderator concerned were apprised of the intention to introduce a 
name to a vacant church in his Province. It should be remembered 
that while one may have a particular friend whom he specially 
desires to help, the Moderators, in this sense, have no " friends," 
but are striving to give each minister an equal opportunity. 

Transfer of Church Members. — It is a matter of deep concern that 
members and adherents of our churches are frequently lost to us 
by removal to other places, and we have been asked to consider what 
can be done to prevent this wastage. This is a vital subject, and 
calls for the immediate attention of ministers and church officers. 
It is the universal practice of our churches to give a removing 
member a transfer when desired. It is essential that the principle 
be everywhere adopted that no member or adherent of our churches 
removing to another neighbourhood shall be lost sight of until he 
or she is definitely gathered into the fellowship of another church. 
This result is sometimes secured by keeping a separate list of " Non- 
resident Members," and by keeping iii touch with them by letter 
until a transfer has been effected. In the case of non-members a 
similar procedure may be adopted. It is the clear duty of every 
church from which a member or adherent may be removing to 
communicate without delay with the nearest church in the neigh- 
bourhood where such member or adherent intends to reside, and 
practically everything depends upon this being done in time. The 
church thus informed should be equally prompt in the Christian 
welcome it offers to the new arrival. It would appear that in some 
cases members desire to retain their membership in the church they 
have left behind. We fully appreciate the feelings of affection for 
the old church that give rise to this desire, and occasionally there 
may be special reasons why such a request may be granted. But it 
cannot be too strongly urged that it is the duty of a member or 
adherent removing to another neighbourhood to throw in his or her 
lot with the church in that neighbourhood, and he or she is more 
likely to do this if definitely connected with it either by form of 
transfer, or letter of introduction, from his previous church. A 
sense of loyalty to the other church should cause a minister to urge 
this upon departing families with all possible persuasion. Forms 
of Transfer for members and Letters of Introduction for non- 
members can be obtained from the Memorial Hall, but the successful 



18 

working of this arrangement can only be secured by the earnest and 
constant attention of the ministers and officers of the churches 
concerned. 

Church Extension. — We wish again to express our concern at the 
problem which confronts us in the need for Church Extension in the 
new districts which are growing up. These districts are springing 
up very rapidly in many cases, and unless some action on a large 
scale is taken Congregationalism will be unrepresented in many of 
the new centres of population. 

Encouraging Signs. — In carrying out the work entrusted to us 
we have the privilege of constantly visiting our churches, and often 
we are asked what impressions we gather concerning their life and 
activity. We believe that in the churches there is an increasing 
sense of the life and work of the whole Denomination and a deepening 
interest in the wider reaches of our service. The appeal of the London 
Missionary Society and the Colonial Missionary Society for our 
world-wide enterprise, with its necessity for prayer and service, and 
the dedication of lives and of money, has met with a gratifying, if 
still inadequate, response. The movement among our young people 
initiated by the Young People's Department is going forward with 
hope and enthusiasm. The Summer Campaign for the visitation of 
the churches, for which Mr. Meggitt and the Union are preparing, is 
awakening expectation, and is receiving ready and glad response 
from all who are asked to serve. In addition to these activities 
there is, we believe, in many of our churches a deepened sense of 
the Presence of Cod, and an increased desire after a public worship 
which is marked by heartiness, reverence, and the beauty of holiness. 
For all these things let us thank God, and take courage. 

Legal Committee Eeport. 
Chairman: Mr.,W. Mercer Wade, M.A., LL.B. 
Mr. W. Mercer Wade, M.A., LL.B., was re-appointed Chairman 
of the Committee for the ensuing year. 
The following cases have been completed during the year : — 
Adderbury \ 

Bolsover L Deeds deposited at the Memorial Hall. 

Haslemere Manse ) 

Hadleigh — Deeds deposited with the Bank as security for an 
advance. 
Felixstowe, New Manse — Deeds held by the Mortgagee.

ence to the Union (Incorporated) as Trustee : — 

Lee, Burnt Ash Lane. Whaley Bridge. 

Redhill. Lincoln Manse. 

Wirksworth. Middleton. 



19 

New Gases. — Applications from the following Churches for the 
Union (Incorporated) to undertake the Trusteeship of their properties, 
have been accepted during the year by the Council, and the transfers 
are now being carried through : — 

Beaconsfield. • Hythe. 

Slough. Itchington. 

Church Stretton (Silvester Home Institute). 

The following properties have been, or are being, sold : — 
St. Mary's, Broadstairs. Havant Manse. 

The New Conveyancing Acts. — The Committee are happy to say 
that the Law of Property (Amendment) Act, 1926, has made it 
possible for the Incorporated Union to act as sole Trustee, subject 
to the authorisation of the Lord Chancellor. The necessary 
authority was received on the 16th July, 1926. 

The Marriage Service in Book of Congregational Worship. — The 
following letter has been sent out, with the authority of Somerset 
House, to all Congregational Ministers : — 

" Dear Sir, 

" I wish to call your attention to the following important 
point with regard to the Order of Service for Marriage in the 
Book of Congregational Worship : Where a marriage is attended 
by the Civil Registrar, the present Registrar-General is of 
opinion (notwithstanding the paragraph in the preface to 
the Book of Congregational Worship) That for the purpose of 
removing doubts that have sometimes been expressed, the 
form of words prescribed by the Statute (6 & 7 Will. IV, c. 85, 
s. 20) should be strictly adhered to. The Council of the Union 
concur in this view and for the same reasons, though they and 
the Registrar- General are fully satisfied that marriages which 
have been celebrated with the use of the shorter form set out 
in the Book of Worship are in no way affected. They recom- 
mend, therefore, that the Ministers should insert at the foot 
of the page of the Book of Worship where the declaration 
occurs, the following note : — 

" Note. — Where the marriage is attended by the Civil 
Registrar, the declaration is to run : — 

" ' I call unon these persons here present to witness that 
I, M.M., do take thee, N.N., to be my lawful wedded 
wife . . .' 
and similarly in the case of the declaration of the woman. 

" I hope that you will make this insertion in your own copy 
of the Book of Worship, as cases have arisen where there have 
been difficulties when the shorter form has been used. 
" Yours sincerely, 

"Sidney M. Berry." 



20 

Benevolent Societies and Return of Income Tax. — The Secretaries 
of the County Unions have been informed that by a decision in 
the Courts on the 17th June, 1926, exemption from Income Tax 
on the income of their invested funds has been granted where 
annuities are paid to beneficiaries on the grounds of need and not 
as a matter of right. 

Trust Funds administered by the Union. — The Committee have 
had under consideration the position of certain of the Funds which 
are administered by the Union and which are not governed by any 
legal instrument. It was felt that this was unsatisfactory, and 
Mr. Harold Shepheard was accordingly instructed to report to the 
Committee on the whole of the Funds which are under the care 
of the Union and to prepare draft Declarations of Trust in respect 
of such Funds where necessary. The Report has been received 
and the draft deeds are under consideration. The Committee are 
co-operating with the Executive Committees of the various Funds 
concerned, and generally with the Finance Committee. 

The authority of the Council was given to the Church Building 
and Extension Committee, the Church Aid and Central Fund 
Committee, and the General Purposes Committee to have their 
respective declarations of trusts sealed when the work of revising 
the declarations is completed to the satisfaction of these 
Committees. 

Legacies. — The Incorporated Union has accepted the Trusteeship 
of the following legacies : — 

Emma Elizabeth Bynon — £600 2J per cent. Consols, upon 
trust to pay the income to the Minister of Clyro Church. 
Leman — Belmont Mission. 
Newbury — Ministers' Fund. 
The Committee record with great pleasure the addition to their 
membership of Mr. Arthur Binns. They are confident that his 
expert knowledge of all questions in regard to Income Tax will 
be of invaluable assistance. 



FINANCE COMMITTEE REPORT. 

Chairman: Sir R. Murray Hyslop, J.P. 

Vice-Chairman : Mr. J. C. Meggitt, J.P. 

Affiliation Fees and Associate Members. — In presenting the 

financial accounts of the Union for the past year, the Committee 

once again thank the Churches for the loyal support which they 

have so generously given. The Affiliation Fees received during the 

past year have exceeded by more than £500 the amount contributed 

in 1925, and this response in the face of the industrial trouble which 

has made the year 1926 so unhappily memorable is most encouraging. 

The Committee, however, feel that any further expansion in the 



21 

income of the Union can only come from an increase in the number 
of Associate Members, and they appeal to all who have the welfare 
of the Denomination at heart to add their names to the roll and 
thus help in the progressive work which the Union has in hand. 

Financial Secretary. — The Committee, having received the 
Council's approval that a Financial Secretary should be appointed, 
proceeded at once by public advertisement to, invite applications 
for the position. Over one hundred applications were received 
and considered by a sub-committee. By processes of elimination 
these applications were reduced to seven, and as the result of inter- 
views were further reduced to three. The sub-committee then 
decided that the three applicants should appear before the full 
committee, which unanimously decided to recommend to the 
Assembly the appointment of Mr. Harold Simpson. The appoint- 
ment of Mr. Simpson was approved by the Assembly, and he 
commenced his duties early in July last. 

The Committee record their appreciation of the professional and 
administrative ability and tactfulness shown by Mr. Simpson in a 
position of delicacy and difficulty. Already the fruits of the policy 
pursued by the Committee are beginning to show in the increased 
efficiency of the administration. 

Mr. Hancock. — As from December 31st, 1926, the financial duties 
hitherto devolving upon Mr. Hancock in the Church Aid and Central 
Fund Departments have been taken over by Mr. Simpson. Mr. 
Hancock retires on pension in March, 1927, after serving the Union 
faithfully for forty-two years. 

Policy of the Committee. — The policy of the Committee is gradually 
to bring the whole financial administration of all departments 
under the control of the Financial Secretary. The effect of this 
policy will ultimately be a considerable reduction in the cost of 
administration. 

It must be borne in mind, however, that the work of adminis- 
tration of the finances of the Union was never greater nor more 
onerous than it is to-day, and it is certain to increase in the future. 
For instance, of the £460,000 allocated from the Forward Movement 
£360,000 remains under the control of the Union and the proper 
records of investments and changes of investments in respect of 
the various trusts have to be kept and the income from investments 
duly received and properly recorded and disbursed. 

Legacies, etc. — The Committee desire to report the receipt of the 
following legacies : Exors. of Miss D. M. Crosfield, deceased, £1,000, 
and Exors. of Mr. E. J. Paine, deceased, £25, both of which have 
been added to the Capital Account of the Union, as also the receipt 
of £50, fees for Life Membership. 

An anonymous gift of £105 has been added to the Staff Super- 
annuation Fund. 



22 

Forward Movement.— The primary allocations of the Forward 
Movement Fund have now been met, and as to £100,000 have 
passed out of the control of the Union, viz. : — 

London Missionary Society . . . . £75,000 

Colonial Missionary Society . . . . 25,000 



£100,000 

Investments have been made in respect of £360,000 and allo- 
cated to the following Trust Funds (under the control of Union 
committees) : — 



Pastors' Superannuation 


. £150,000 


Pastors' Widows 


. 50,000 


Schools for Ministers' Sons and Daughters . 


. 50,000 


Moderators 


. 50,000 


Head-quarters 


40,000 


List " B " Superannuation 


. 20,000 



£360,000 

Independent Press, Ltd.— The formation of " Independent 
Press, Ltd." to take over the business of the Publication Depart- 
ment was referred to in the last Report. 

This Company has already declared an interim dividend on 
account of the year 1926 of 12J per cent., and the amount of this 
dividend, less income tax deducted (which will be recovered), has 
been credited to Interest and Dividends Account. 

Staff Superannuation. — The Committee has pleasure in reporting 
that the Staff Superannuation Scheme was ratified by the Assembly 
at the Autumnal Meetings at Leicester, and an Account and Balance 
Sheet of this Fund are appended. It will also be observed that an 
item appears in the general expenditure for the year under the 
heading of " Pensions." This item will occur regularly in future, 
and will represent the annuities which are not provided for by the 
Staff Superannuation Fund, but such annuities will, of course, 
disappear in process of time. Reference to the Staff Super- 
annuation Fund would not be complete without an expression of 
the Committee's appreciation of the work that Mr. Binns has done 
in undertaking the negotiations with the Inland Revenue for the 
recognition by them of this Fund— negotiations which have been 
completely successful. 

United Board Institute. — In June of last year, the premises at 
88, Queen Street, Portsea, where the Rev. W. M. Yorwerth was 
carrying on the work of the United Board, were destroyed by fire. 
Out of the proceeds of the insurance money, the loan from the 
bank of £4,000 has been repaid, and new premises at 27, Western 



23 



Parade, Southsea, have been acquired and completely equipped. 
The site of the old premises has been sold to the Portsmouth Welfare 
Association, but there has been some delay m the completion of 
the sale When the balance of the sale price is received, there will 
be an amount of approximately £2,800 available for investment, 
the income from which will provide some £140 per annum towards 
the annual grant of £250 which has been voted by the United Board 
for the maintenance of the Institute. 

Blake Estate.— Mi. Geen (Executor of the Blake Estate and a 
member of this Committee) has during the year acquainted the 
Committee with the progress made in the realisation of the Estate 
and as to the policy which he is pursuing m the administration 
thereof The sincere thanks of the Committee are given to Mr. 
Geen, and a further report will be made to the Council when 
matters are sufficiently advanced. 

Thanhs.— In closing their report, the Committee thank the 
Council for their adoption of the recommendations which have as 
their objective the provision of an administrative organisation, 
adequate to the needs of the present, and so devised as to be capable 
of ready expansion as the work of the Union extends.

CHURCH BUILDING AND EXTENSION COMMITTEE 
REPORT. 

Chairman : Sir James Carmichael, K.B.E. 

Vice-chairman: Mr. W. Mercer Wade, M.A., LL.B. 

Schemes. — During the year Church Extension schemes have 
sprung up in different localities and especially in some of the larger 
towns where Congregationalists are reviewing the whole situation 
in the locality from the point of view of the Denomination rather 
than of the single church. Among such schemes mention may be 
made of Cardiff, Manchester and Birmingham, while in other 
localities there has been a notable revival of interest in the whole 
question of Church Extension. Unfortunately, owing to the fact 
that the total amount promised to the Forward Movement has not 
yet been paid in, the Committee have found it impossible to go 
further in raising by private appeal the Fund which was mentioned 
in last year's Report and which the Council sanctioned. It will be 
recalled that that private Fund was to be used to make challenge 
gifts to different localities and that the Fund was to be restricted 
to actual Church Extension work. The Committee still adhere to 
the policy of raising such a Fund. It is obvious, however, that 
even if there were a considerable Fund of that kind in existence 
the main burden would fall on the localities themselves. This is 
the way in which Congregational churches have been formed in 
the past, and the Committee feel that all future policy for Church 
Extension must follow the same lines. It must rest on Congrega- 
tional Boards in our larger towns and cities and upon our County 
Unions to inaugurate such work, while it is hoped that in future 
years a Fund may be available at Head-quarters wjiich may be used 
for contributing a certain proportion of the amount raised locally 
for approved schemes. 

* The Need for Extension. — The Committee wish to impress on the 
Council and, through the Council, on Congregationalists all over 
the country the urgent importance of this question. It is one on 
which depends the future vitality of the Denomination. If we are 
not represented in the new districts which are rapidly springing up 
everywhere it must be a source of fatal weakness in the future. 
Therefore the Committee press upon Congregationalists the duty 
of making a careful investigation in their own neighbourhoods, and 
if nothing else can be done the Committee recommend them to 
secure suitable sites and to hold them until it is possible to start 
building operations. At the same time it is quite clear to the 
Committee that the policy of putting up new buildings must go 
hand in hand with a courageous policy in disposing of properties 
where effective work is no longer possible owing to changed conditions. 



37 



Help given— In carrying out the administration of the Fund at 
present in existence the Committee have to report that 65 cases 
have engaged the attention of the Committee during the past year, 
to 30 of which £7,307 was voted in financial assistance. The actual 
payments amounted to £5,722, of which £5,550 was by way of 
loans and the balance of £172 in grants. The sum of £20,607 is 
now out on loan among 157 churches, while a further sum of £9,630 
has been promised conditionally towards 41 other schemes when 
they mature. 

New Causes.— Several important undertakings have been launched 
this year, notably the handsome new church at Crowstone, Westclifi- 
on-Sea, which cost over £30,000, and was formally opened by our 
Chairman in June. New buildings have also been completed and 
opened at Cherryhinton Road, Cambridge, and Moorland Road, 
Weston-super-Mare, to which the Committee have given liberal 
financial help. To the Essex Congregational- Union also a loan 
of £250 has been voted towards securing suitable sites for urgent 
cases of Church Extension in the County. 

The Committee desire to acknowledge with special thanks a 
generous donation of £100 from the Congregational Insurance 
Company, and also the receipt of a legacy of £200 from the estate 
of the late Mrs. Royce, of Oakham.

INDEPENDENT PRESS, LIMITED. 

DIRECTORS' REPORT FOR 1926. 

Chairman : Mr. James O'Hanlon. 

Vice-Chairman: Mr. Stanley Unwin. 

Sales. — In presenting to the Council their report of the year's 
working the Directors are happy to record steady and satisfactory 
progress. In spite of industrial conflicts and commercial depression, 
the sales in 1926 rose to a total of £21,861— an increase of £1,461 
over the previous year. In 1925 the total sales reached £20,400, 
and in 1924 £20,760. Such a result is distinctly encouraging. 

The sales of our editions of hymn books and service books in 1926 
show an increase of £1,346. The newly published " School Worship " 
is winning marked popularity. Over 27,000 copies have been sold, 
in addition to editions of 29,000, with special title page, taken by 
the " Psalms and Hymns Trust " of the Baptist Churches. 

The Staff. — The Directors desire to express their appreciation of 
the loyal and effective service rendered by their staff, under the 
admirable leadership of Mr. C. F. Garrood. 

The Directors have arranged with the Finance Committee of the 
Union for their whole staff to be included in the Committee's con- 
tributory Superannuation Scheme. 

Bank Loan. — During 1926 the Directors have been able to pay 
off the Bank Loan of £1,500 with which they began the year. 

Profits. — The whole profits of the " Independent Press " are 
devoted to the funds of the Union. In October, 1926, the Directors 
declared an interim dividend for the current year of 12 J per cent., 
and this dividend (amounting to* £953 17s. §d. less income tax, 
which is recoverable by the Union) has been paid to the Treasurer 
of Jhe Union. 

On January 1st, 1927, after discharging all liabilities to the end 
of November, the Directors had a Bank Balance of £1,576. 

New Publications. — The publications of the " Independent Press " 
during the year have included : — 

New editions of " A Popular History of the Free Churches " 
and " The Romance of Preaching," by C. Silvester Home. The 
former of these has been brought up to date by a supplementary 
chapter, written by Dr. Peel, which is also published separately. 

A booklet on " Private Prayer," by the Rev. Dr. A. Herbert 
Gray and the Rev. George Barclay. 

A booklet on " The Communion Service," by Maurice L. 
Harper, M.C. 

A booklet on " Positive Protestantism," by Dr. W. B. Selbie. 



41 

Two Text-books written for the Young People's Department : — 
" The Reformation," by the Rev. A. Norman Rowland, M.A. 
" The Monk Who Shook the World," by the Rev. W. Melville 
Harris, M.A. 

The Congregational Year Book, 1927. — This has been revised 
and improved, according to the resolutions adopted by the Council 
of the Union at Leicester last October. The bulk of the volume 
has been reduced by 54 pages, while several new features have 
been introduced. 

The Congregational Quarterly. — This excellent Review has main- 
tained and established its position, and Dr. Peel and the Editorial 
Board are to be congratulated on the fact that it is paying its own 
way. It demands and deserves wider support from Congregational- 
ists everywhere.

"WORK AMONGST THE YOUNG" COMMITTEE. 

Chairman : Rev. W. Charter Piggott. 

Vice- Chairman: Rev. Luke Beaumont. 

The Campaign. — Following an inquiry made by means of a 
questionnaire into the condition of our Sunday Schools, a Campaign 
was inaugurated by a resolution in the last Annual Assembly of the 
Congregational Union, and subsequently a letter was sent to every 
Church, asking for a fresh effort to be made to do fuller justice to 
the needs of the children. 

In every county a Young People's Secretary and Committee 
have been urging the Churches to join in this movement to secure 
the children of to-day for the Church of to-morrow. 

To concentrate the thought of the whole Church upon this effort, 
March 20th-26th is being observed as " Sunday School Week." _ It 
is hoped, however, that this will not be the goal of the Campaign, 
but a fresh starting point for the development of all work among 
Young People. 

The Autumnal Meetings at Leicester. — Wednesday, October 13th, 
was a notable day for the Young People's Department, as the entire 
morning session was assigned to the consideration of the work of 
Christian Education. 

The subject was laid before the Assembly by the Revs. W. Charter 
Piggott, Luke Beaumont and Dr. Grieve. A luncheon was given 
by Sir Edward Sharp, Bart., to those who can do so much in the 
counties to see that work among the young occupies a larger measure 
of the Church's thought. 

A New Training Centre for Sunday School Teachers.— The Young 
People's Department has taken a leading part in the organisation of 
an inter-denominational Training Centre for London Sunday School 
Teachers, who are unable to leave their occupations, and yet desire 
to be better equipped for their work among the young. 

With the co-operation of the Whitefields Council and Sunday 
School, the Moorfields Hall of this Central Mission has been secured 
for lectures, which were begun last autumn with ninety students. 

It is hoped that other cities will establish similar centres, so that 
the desire of numbers of Sunday School workers to become more 
efficient may be more fully met. 

Easter Conference. — A Conference for Congregational Sunday 
School workers at Mansfield College last Easter, which was attended 
by 120 students, was so successful that it is being repeated in the 
same place through the kindness of the Principal and the College 
Board. 

Competitions. — Through the generosity of Mr. J. C. Meggitt, J.P., 
a competition on " How to Improve our Sunday Schools " was 



45 

arranged last autumn for workers in Congregational Churches and 
Schools. 

The results of the competition are : — 

First Prize . . Miss Elizabeth Nevitt, B.A., Chadwick Mount, 

Liverpool. 
Second Prize . . Mr. George A. Carr, Felling. 
Third Prizes . . Rev. J. Arnold Quail, M.A., B.D., Mansfield. 
Miss Dorothy Davison, Withington, Manchester. 

While the unanimity of the writers as to the value of grading to 
our schools was noticeable, the utmost stress was laid on the impor- 
tance of the personality of the teacher, and also on definiteness of 
aim in teaching. It is generally felt that our Sunday Schools have 
forces arrayed against them that make it imperative that we should 
see that our work is able to stand firmly against them, and 
prevail. 

Examinations. — " The Reformation " was the subject of the 
Examination in 1926, and, in spite of the difficulty of grasping so 
vast a subject, most of the candidates were so well trained that in 
the Essay Competition there were only 7 failures, while 18 obtained 
Honours, 23 were in the First Division and 17 in the Second ; in 
the Senior Division (for those over eighteen) only 31 failed, while 
there were 3 in the Honours Division, 59 in the First Class, and 77 in 
the Second Class. 

In the Intermediate Section (for those fifteen and under eighteen) 
there were only 44 failures, while 28 passed with Honours, 108 in 
the First Class, and 141 in the Second Class. 

1,291 sat for the Upper Junior Division (for those twelve and 
under fifteen), out of which 328 failed, while 39 passed with Honours, 
283 in the First Class, and 641 in the Second Class. 

741 sat for the Lower Junior Division (for those under twelve), and 
there were 160 failures ; 29 passed with Honours, 267 were in the 
First Class, and 285 in the Second Class. 

The following were the winners of the First Prizes : — 

Essay Elizabeth Nevitt, B. A., Chadwick Mount, 

Liverpool. 
Senior Division . . . . Doris J. Mason, Chadwick Mount, 

Liverpool. 
Intermediate Division . . Lilian M. Youds, Ormskirk Street, 

St. Helens. 
Upper Junior Division. . Lilian Dawson, Stead Memorial, Wil- 

lington Quay. 
Lower Junior Division . . Kathleen Brittle, Lowther Street, 

Kendal. 



46 

The winners of the Christian World prizes are : 

Essay Edna Singleton, Dulwich Grove 

Senior Division . . . . Annie Trim, Boscombe. 

Intermediate Division . . Madie Haworth, Fairhaven. 

Upper Junior Division . . Sydney Myers, Otley. 

Lower Junior Division . . Elsie A. Pyall, Ebenezer, Chatham. 

The subject this year will be " Congregationalism," and in 1928 

John Bunyan," that year being the tercentenary of his birth.

CENTRAL FUND AND CHURCH AID COMMITTEE 
REPORT. 

Chairman: Mr. F. N. Tribe, J.P. 

Interim Grants. — The Central Fund and Church Aid Committee 
held Interim Meetings and dealt with applications received after 
the date of the last meeting of the Council. These were not so 
numerous as in the previous year, and a list of additional grants 
then made is appended. 

Officers. — Mr. Frank N. Tribe, J.P., was re-elected Chairman and 
Mr. G. N. Ford, J.P., continued the valuable service he has rendered 
for so many years as Treasurer. 

Grants. — The apportionment of available funds amongst the 
applicants for assistance is no easy task, but the Committee dealt 
with all applications with the greatest possible care, and none was 
refused, though in some cases it was not in the power of the Committee 
to give the full amounts asked for. All appeals were passed by the 
respective County Unions, and were then considered in consultation 
with the Moderators, and the Committee believe that the grants 
made, which they now submit for confirmation, are just and 
reasonable. 

Income and Expenditure. — As reported in 1926 many grants for 
that year had to be somewhat cut down because of shortage of funds, 
but even then the Committee feared that the accounts for the year 
would show that they had been made on too generous a scale and 
that Income would prove to have been much overspent. They are 
glad, however, to say that, as regards the Central Fund, their 
fears proved to be exaggerated, and it will be seen on reference 
to the accounts that the adverse balance is only £9 Os. lOd. 
But that is not the case with the Church Aid Society. There 
is a constant tendency in these days to replace List A men by 
those on List B. This results in a transference of the burden of 
claims from the Central Fund to the Church Aid Society, which 
alone can give grants to List B men. There was, as a matter of 
fact, a loss on Income Account of £196 17s. 9d., but the Committee 
made a grant in aid from the Bowdler Fund of £300, and this enables 
them to show a credit balance of £103 2s. 3d. for the year. 
Such a grant can only be exceptional, and in considering the grants 
for 1927 the Committee did not reckon upon help from this source. 
By arrangement, however, with some of the County Unions the 
Committee were able to transfer some grants from the Church Aid 
Society to the Central Fund, and they hope that if the grants as 
now submitted are confirmed the Income and Expenditure for the 
year may approximately balance. 



49 

Insurance of Churches. — The Committee believe that the resolution 
passed last year, making grants dependent upon the County Unions 
being satisfied that Churches and Manses are adequately insured, 
has iustified itself, for they find a marked improvement in this 
respect. 

Diminishing Grants. — It should be reiterated that grants from these 
Funds must not be looked upon as in the nature of endowments, 
but that Churches must expect that there shall be a gradual reduc- 
tion, except in special cases. So only can means be found to meet 
new claims. The present is an exceptionally difficult time, and 
your Committee have therefore not thought they should deal with 
this matter now, but when conditions improve it must be taken into 
serious consideration. 

Legacies. — In the course of the year the Committee were very 
thankful to receive two legacies — £899 12s. 6d. from the estate of 
Miss Shelly and £200 from Mrs. Royce. These have been invested 
in the purchase of £1,445 9s. lOd. 3 J per cent. Conversion Stock. 

Trust Deed.— The funds of the Church Aid Society have never 
been formally put in Trust, and there has been no distinction 
between Capital and Revenue. Any surplus has been added to 
the Accumulated Fund, and any deficiency has been charged 
against it. The Finance and Legal Committees of the Union had 
this under their consideration, and thought it very unsatisfactory, 
and they accordingly approached your Committee with a suggestion 
that a Trust Deed should be formed with the Union as Trustee. 

Your Committee felt that this was a proper course of action and, 
subject to the approval of the Council, they have carefully considered 
and accepted such a deed. They did not think it would be wise to 
tie up in trust the whole of the money belonging to the Society, as 
that would unduly cripple them in the administration of the Fund, 
but they have agreed that the sum of £39,000 shall be put into 
Trust as Capital, and that the balance of £1,551 10s. 5d. shall be 
treated as Income available for the general purposes of the Fund. 
The Council approved this recommendation. 

Mr. W. W. Hancock.— After more than forty years of faithful 
and valued service under the Rev. W. F. Clarkson and the 
Rev. J. E. Flower, and afterwards as Departmental Secretary, 
Mr. Hancock has arrived at the time when, under the Rules of the 
Umon, he retires from active service. Your Committee have been 
able to make adequate and satisfactory arrangements to that end, 
and Mr. Hancock's retirement takes effect as from March 31st. 
The Committee hand over to the Congregational Union of England 
and Wales the sum of £520 13s. 7d. standing to the credit of the 
Church Aid Superannuation Fund and undertake to pay to the Union 
annually the amount now paid to Mr. Hancock as salary, so long 



50 

as the retiring allowance is payable, and in return the Union will 
pay to Mr. Hancock the agreed allowance. 

Bowdler Fund.— The Arthur Clegg Bowdler Sustentation Fund 
has. again proved of great service in enabling the Committee to 
deal with a considerable number of cases of urgent need and great 
distress. As stated earlier in the Report, a grant was made from 
this Fund in aid of the Church Aid Society's funds. Such a grant 
seems fully in the spirit of a gift for the help of Ministers. No 
remittance has been received in the course of the year from the 
Executors of the Will of Mr. Bowdler, but when they are able to 
realise the remainder of the property it is hoped that a substantial 
further amount may be available, when, of course, there will be 
additional Income for the purposes of the Trust.

FORWAKD MOVEMENT COMMITTEE REPORT. 
Chairman: Rev. J. D. Jones, C.H., M.A., D.D. 

State of the Fund. — The year under review has seen a gradual 
increase of the Fund, which at the beginning of 1927 reached the 
total of £473,388 19s. 9d., as compared with £422,396 12s. 6d. at 
the beginning of 1926. 

Owing to the new valuation of certain shares that were given 
to the Fund the total of the promises announced at the Albert Hall 
has to be reduced by £10,000. It will thus be seen that the amount 
of promises unfulfilled up to date is £17,639 5s. Od. 

Original Allocations. — All the original allocations, totalling 
£460,000, have now been made. The London Missionary Society 
and the Colonial Missionary Society have received the full amounts 
promised to them. The Ministerial Superannuation Fund and the 
Widows' Fund are now in operation, and while the grants may fall 
below the level of certain expectations which had been formed, the 
new resources available have helped to lift an intolerable burden 
from the lives of old ministers. The Schools Fund is now in opera- 
tion, while the Headquarters Fund has enabled the general work of 
the Union to proceed on a sound financial basis. 

Additional Allocations. — The results actually achieved fully 
justify the great effort which the Denomination made to raise the 
Fund. It is, however, a matter of urgency that the amount out- 
standing should be paid in as quickly as possible, especially when 
it is remembered that a further provisional allocation has been made 
by the Assembly of £25,000 to the Ministerial Superannuation 
Fund and £10,000 to the List B. Superannuation Fund. These 
further amounts are necessary to enable those two Funds to do 
their work efficiently, and it is hoped that individuals and Churches 
will redeem their unfulfilled promises as soon as possible. 

The Commissioners. — Opportunity was taken at the Leicester 
Meetings, by the hospitality of Mr. F. S. Brice, J.P., to entertain 
the Commissioners at lunch, when an enthusiastic expression of the 
thanks of the Denomination was given to them for the great work 
that they had done in helping to raise the Fund.

A MISSIONARY REVIEW OF THE YEAR. 

This report deals with the whole missionary enterprise of our 
Congregational Churches, and is, therefore, a joint report of the 
work of the London Missionary Society and the Colonial Missionary 
Society, for to those two bodies has been entrusted the missionary 
enterprise of our Denomination. 

The missionary responsibilities of the Congregational Union are 
literally world-wide. The representatives of our Congregational 
Churches are in all great lands, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is 
being taught by them throughout Australasia and Canada, in the 
great countries of Africa and India, in the scattered islands of 
the South Pacific, in the West Indies and British Guiana, in 
Madagascar and over the great land of China. 

The work of the Societies in their various fields of effort makes 
them responsible wholly or in part for the support of 360 European 
missionaries and a whole army of native colleagues in the various 
lands of service. The work under their charge is pastoral and 
evangelical, and in many centres large educational institutions and 
a number of hospitals are established. The missionary ships, the 
John Williams, together with the John Cunningham and the Mary 
Cunningham and a fleet of motor-boats and house-boats used in 
carrying the messengers of the Gospel to outlying parts of the 
world and inland mission stations, are also sustained by their funds. 

The history of the widespread adventures for the Gospel which 
have brought so many important missionary centres of life and 
great Christian Churches overseas into being, is one long romance. 
It is a part of our wondrous Congregational heritage and one for 
which we give God thanks. 

The maintenance of this work places upon our people a grave, 
God-given responsibility. Hundreds of men and women who have 
been nourished in our Churches and many thousands of their 
associates in Christian service look from afar to British Congrega- 
tionalism for support and fellowship. Failure to sustain adequately 
their labours is a failure in Christian brotherhood and a neglect of 
spiritual responsibility. 

During the year both of our Societies have received the final 
payments of the monies raised for missionary work in connection 
with the Forward Movement, and would express their gratitude to 
the Denomination for the place given to Missions in that Movement 
and also in the many appeals which were made in connection with 
the Fund. In spite of this financial help, we have to report that 
the missionary work of our Denomination cost £25,000 more than 
was received by the Societies. They are, however, hoping by means 
of their special campaigns so to quicken the interest of our Church 
members in the world-wide appeal that there will be a more adequate 
response to the challenge which comes from all parts of the world. 



68 

The cry of our missionary brethren and sisters has been again this 
year one of appeal for closer sympathy and more loyal support. 
The missionary enterprise is becoming an expression in concrete 
form of that larger Congregationalism of which we have caught but 
a faint vision. 

A glance at the reports of our Missionary Societies shows definite 
progress in the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the exten- 
sion and deepening of Church life, a great ministry of healing and 
the widespread education of the young. In addition to the steady 
addition to overseas Church membership, our missionary repre- 
sentatives have brought into the growing and united Church life of 
developing lands those principles of Christian experience to which 
our Congregational Churches expressly witness, and which are our 
providential and particular gift to the Church Universal. Whilst 
we still stand where the pioneer independent stalwarts of a past 
day stood in the assurance of the Master's presence with the two 
or three gathered together in His Name, we believe that behind the 
two or three there was present in the mind of Christ the coming 
Kingdom of God and the gathering into its fellowship of multitudes 
who would be collectively conscious of His presence and will, 
and would unite to carry these to the waiting world. Nowhere is 
great Christian statesmanship more vital than in our fields of 
missionary endeavour. 

Difficulties of no mean order have been and are still the lot of 
our missionaries in China, where political changes have brought 
varied and intricate problems to the European and Chinese leaders 
of the Church and have severely tested the loyalty of the rank and 
file of the Churches. In Africa also the Church community, Native, 
Coloured, and European, has been called upon to face times of special 
trial and to deal with far-reaching racial and religious problems. A 
sense of spiritual kinship with the Churches in the homeland is a 
great strength to all those engaged in responsible Christian service 
overseas, and we may be grateful for the closer knitting together of 
our home and foreign Churches. 

An increase in the knowledge of the world problems of our faith 
and a closer identification of our Churches with them, expressed 
both in interest and prayer by the ministry and the membership of 
the Churches at home, deepens the hope that a large volume of 
personal service may be forthcoming from the youth of Congrega- 
tionalism. A growth in the missionary ministry of our Church is 
one of its vital needs. It is satisfactory to report a large and hope- 
ful extension of interest and service in missionary endeavour on the 
part of young people in our home Churches'. The carrying of 
Christia'n conviction and service into every land to which our people 
are taken by claims of business or of pleasure is a definite Christian 
responsibility. It is this which marks the living Missionary Church. 

Promising as the advance of the year has been, we have scarcelv 



69 

begun to touch the problem presented to our Church by a world 
largely unevangelised and truly lacking Christian leadership and 
teaching. Financial difficulties are but a symbol of the real need. 
The awakening of the whole Church to its definite responsibility for 
the salvation of the world has yet to take place ; and while we offer 
thanks to God for all that it has been given to the faithful among its 
people to accomplish, it may well be the prayer of our Congregational 
Union that a deep and widespread revival of spiritual life may come 
to equip our people for the tremendous task which lies before them 
in our far-flung fields of Christian service.

Bitton, 48, Broadway, S.W.I. 

Colonial Missionary Society : Secretary — Rev. A. G. Sleep, 
20, Memorial Hall, Farringdon Street, E.C.4. 

The foregoing statement was received by the Council with great 
gratification both for its own sake and as an indication of the 
increasing concern of the Denomination for the work of the 
Missionary Societies.

SUPERANNUATION COMMITTEE REPORT. 
Chairman: Rev. J. D. Jones, C.H., M.A., D.D. 

During 1926 fifty-four fresh annuitants have been added to the 
Fund. Nineteen annuitants have died, and two have relinquished 
their annuities. The present number of annuitants is three hundred 
and twenty-six. The increased grants made possible by the Forward 
Movement have brought relief to many of our retired ministers, and 
while the grants are not as large as the Committee would wish to 
make them, the present scale is the highest that is possible with the 
resources now in hand. It is to be hoped that the additional 
£25,000 provisionally allocated from the surplus of the Forward 
Movement will before long be available for the purposes of super- 
annuation. 

During the year a great deal of time has been spent by the 
Committee in inquiring into the possibilities of forming a Contribu- 
tory Superannuation Scheme. Full facts as to the situation in its 
financial aspects were given by Mr. Owen Kentish at the Autumnal 
Assembly at Leicester. The Committee owes a deep debt of grati- 
tude to Mr. Kentish for all his labour in making the necessary 
calculations and for the admirable clearness with which he set 
forth the facts. Unfortunately the statement revealed the greatly 
increased resources that would be needed to set on foot a Contribu- 
tory Scheme. Further inquiries are proceeding with the object 
of discovering whether a Contributory Scheme of any kind is within 
the range of practical possibility, and a further report will be made 
to the Council at Buxton. 

The List B Superannuation Fund has been put into operation, 
and the present number of annuitants is twenty-three. The 
Committee wishes to emphasise the fact that to make the present 
Scheme actuarially sound the further £10,000 allocated to this 
Fund from the Forward Movement is an absolute necessity. 

f The Widows' Fund. 

In connection with the Pastors' Widows' Fund, a further forty- 
seven widows have been added during the year ; thirteen annuitant 
widows have died, and two annuities have been relinquished on 
re-marriage. The present number of annuitants is two hundred and 
thirty-one. In connection with the Widows' Fund it is disappointing 
that the grants to widows are on such a small scale, but the 
Committee again wishes to emphasise the fact that all the resources 
of the Fund are being used and that the reason for the smallness 
of the grants is the larger number of widows who have become 
beneficiaries.

LITERATURE COMMITTEE REPORT. 

Chairman: Rev. A. Peel, M.A., Litt.D. 

Statement of Congregational Principles. — The Literature Committee 
has devoted special attention during the year to the preparation of 
a Statement of Congregational Principles to replace a leaflet now out 
of print. This has taken much time, but is now ready. 

MSS. — The members of the Committee act as readers of MSS. 
sent to them from the Independent Press. During the year a 
large number have been submitted to them, but in the main they 
have been declined, a good many on the ground that there was not 
sufficient prospect of a sale to justify publication. 

New Publications. — In addition to the books recorded as published 
during the year in the Report of the " Independent Press " there 
are now in the press booklets by the Rev. D. W. Langridge on " The 
Second Coming," and by Principal Kiek on " Biblical Criticism : 
What it is and what it is not," and a volume by Dr. Peel, " One 
Hundred Eminent Congregationalists." In preparation is the Rev. 
K. L. Parry's " Protestant Principles." 

Plans for other works are under consideration. 

Church Bookstalls. — The Committee is in constant touch with 
the Independent Press and is discussing with them the possibility 
of making provision for the sale of literature in Church vestibules. 
It is thought that our churches might do a great deal to increase 
interest in religious and denominational literature if they were 
equipped with racks or bookstalls. 

The " Congregational Quarterly." — The " Congregational Quarterly " 
has had another good year and has now a secure place among 
the quarterly periodicals. Several such journals have been dis- 
continued in the last two or three years owing to lack of support, 
and it is pleasing that our " Congregational Quarterly " seems now 
to be well established. 

The Chairman. — The hearty thanks of the Council were accorded 
to Dr. Peel for his services to the Denomination through the 
" Congregational Quarterly." 



EDUCATION COMMITTEE REPORT. 
Chairman: Rev. A. Peel, M.A., Litt.D. 

The Education Committee met after the Buxton Council, and 
prepared the following statement on educational policy. 

The Education Committee, in view of the general consideration 
which is being given to the subject of education at the present 
time, and conscious of the influences which are being exerted to 



modify and even to reorganise our educational administration, 
feels that this is the proper time to make perfectly clear certain 
principles which should be kept in view in any attempt to secure 
a national agreement : — 

1. The Committee is convinced of the value of religious 
instruction and is willing that it should form part of a 
national system of education, but it is opposed to the 
present system of dual control which has proved to be 
wasteful in administration and detrimental to educational 
efficiency, and a grave injustice to such parents as are 
compelled to use schools controlled by religious denomina- 
tions to which they do not belong. 

2. The Committee holds that any non-provided school which 
may for any reason be transferred to the L.E.A. should 
be administered in all respects as to religious instruction, 
the appointment of teachers, and the appointment of 
Managers, as a provided school. 

3. The Committee believes that religious instruction should 
be a normal subject of tuition alongside and of equal status 
with other subjects under the safeguard of a Conscience 
Clause for children for whom exemption is desired by their 
parents. It should be given by the teachers themselves 
as part of the ordinary school course and without any 
external interference, but subject to the usual supervision 
exercised in relation to other subjects. 

4. Such teachers should be fully qualified, and all Training 
Colleges should be required to provide facilities for training 
in religious instruction for such student teachers as might 
be willing to take the subject. No teacher should be 
compelled to give religious instruction, and the Committee 
is absolutely opposed to religious tests for teachers. 

5; The Committee believes that it would be possible, with good- 
will on all sides, to devise in every area, as has already 
been done in some areas, an agreed syllabus which would 
ensure adequate instruction in Bible knowledge. 

6; The task of winning the children for Jesus Christ and the 
service of His Kingdom belongs not to the State but to the 
Church. Schools which are definitely Church Schools, 
where the aim of religious teaching is the initiation into a 
Divine Society, must be provided and maintained by the 
Church. The use of public money, without full public 
control, to maintain such schools is to us an intolerable 
injustice, and any attempt to magnify or even to perpetuate 
that injustice will be deeply resented and strongly opposed.

WOMEN'S GUILD REPORT. 

Chairman: Councillor Mrs. Alderton, J.P. 

Guild Progress. — It is only possible to survey the work of the 
past year in the light of the expression given by Guild Secretaries 
and Presidents who are in touch with local centres where the influence 
of the Guild Movement has been evident. Two new County Guilds 
have recently become fully organised after three years of steady 
effort and co-operation between Head-quarters and local Secretaries. 
The Hampshire, and Durham and Northumberland County Guilds 
are making their influence felt in many Denominational interests. 
In the Women's Guild of the Kent County Association, District 
Conferences have been held that have afforded opportunities for 
influence in areas where the Churches need the spirit of fellowship 
and co-operation. The Leicestershire County Guild is in process 
of re-organisation, and we are glad to report that sympathetic 
co-operation between the Secretaries of County Unions and the 
Officials of the Women's County Guilds is increasing. In the 
counties of Dorsetshire, Devonshire, Lincolnshire, Somersetshire, 
Sussex and in North Wales, Guilds have been formed and the 
experience of this year encourages the belief that these separate 
Guilds are an early preparation for the development of County 
Guilds later on. There have been ten new Associate and seven new 
Personal Members added to the list this year. Thirteen new 
Branches have been formed, and three Women's Meetings, and two 
Working Parties have affiliated. 

Policy. — The policy of the Guild Movement is, first of all to 
strengthen and develop the work of the individual Church. This 
invariably forms a Centre in which it is possible to cultivate allegi- 
ance and support in the work of the County, and so create a definite 
link with the aims of the Denomination as a whole. The reports 
of work received from various Centres have proved that the immedi- 
ate" result of the Guild spirit is the extension of the Church's interest 
in local affairs, in Civic, National, and International Movements, 
and the Guild Meetings provide Centres of education and fellow- 
ship for all the women members of a Church. There has been 
an additional feeling of security and stability since the Congregational 
Union has supported the finance of this Department. Growth 
involves expenditure, and it is hoped that this much needed financial 
support will return after many days in added power to the whole 
Denomination and increased understanding of its possible contri- 
bution to the upbuilding of the Kingdom of God. 

The " Quarterly News Sheet." — This periodical increases in popu- 
larity and is eagerly supported by Guild Members throughout the 
country. Its circulation of 1,000 copies each quarter provides a 
bond of fellowship and information between scattered members 



77 



and branches. The cost of printing is covered by payments from 
Guild branches and members. A new Pamphlet on Organisation 
and Policy has been compiled and circulated in large numbers. 

Girls 1 Guilds.— In response to requests from Guild leaders and 
Secretaries, the Committee have decided to recommend the formation 
of Girls' Guilds as Junior Branches of the Women's Guild Movement, 
in Churches and areas where no other organisation for young women 
is in being. This organisation for younger women has proved to 
be eminently useful in the Lancashire County Guild. A card of 
membership is available with the Girls' Guild prayer printed upon it 
that is intended to provide a token of membership, and the spiritual 
link that is the central idea in its formation. This effort was made 
after many requests from local branches, and careful consideration by 
the Committee, and it is already providing the means whereby older 
girls and young married women can co-operate in the kind of fellowship 
that appeals to them as distinct from the interests of older women. 

Conferences, etc.— Our Chairman, Councillor Mrs. Alderton, has been 
unfailing in her service as a public speaker at County Guild Meetings 
and on other occasions throughout the year, and her enthusiastic 
and inspiring messages have kindled enthusiasm and interest 
throughout the country. Mrs. Hall, of Bolton, Mrs. Maddox, of 
Bath, Mrs. Sisling, of Quorn, Mrs. Wilson, of Middlesbrough, Mrs. 
Glassey, of Parkstone, Mrs. Tincker, of Cleckheaton, and Mrs. 
Parsons, of Birmingham, have each contributed to the extension 
of our work in their public speeches. The Secretary has spoken at 
fifty-one public meetings during the year, in addition to attending 
Committees and Councils on which she serves as a Women's Guild 
Delegate They are as follows: British Council and Executive 
Committee of the World Alliance for Promoting International 
Friendship through the Churches ; Women's Advisory Council of 
the League of Nations Union; Free Church Women's Council; 
Women's League of London Congregational Union ; and the Board 
of Directors of the L.M.S. . 

In addition to the spirit of fellowship and more definite inter- 
course in work throughout the country, the Committee have had an 
educational programme in the Councils and Conferences that have 
been arranged during the past year at the Assembly in the Spring 
and Autumn, and in the Winter Meetings of the Women's Guild. 
" The Church's Responsibility for Working Women," " The Girl 
Life of our Towns and Cities," Vigilance Work, Missionary Enter- 
prise, International Peace, and the Claims of Beauty in Church Life, 
are subjects that have been introduced by well-known speakers. 
The influence of these central meetings is reflected in the programme 
of subjects arranged by local Guilds, and in this way our members 
are realising a wider sphere of spiritual opportunity and their own 
responsibility in regard to it. 



78 

The Girls' Guild as a Junior Branch of Women's Guild enter- 
prise has received impetus from the addresses of Miss Picton 
Turbervill, O.B.E., and Miss Edith Rose, O.B.E., at Leicester. 
Mrs. F. P. Wilson's paper on " The Claims of Beauty in our Church 
Life," in which she included architecture, decoration and Church 
fittings ; worship, music, and religious drama, as well as the more 
material and practical suggestions for bazaars and their products, 
should stimulate thought and develop some definite proposals for 
future consideration. 

It has been possible to suggest posts for trained women who are 
Congregationallsts, in positions entirely outside the scope of our 
Denominational work, and to suggest workers to applicants who 
have applied for candidates in connection with their Churches. 
The hope still persists that some day a definite training course 
will be available for women in our own Denomination, but until 
that time arrives, our Guilds afford the varied experience and 
education that will create the desire for more definite training. 

Ministers' Aid. — Owing to the depression caused by the industrial 
disturbances of this winter, the service rendered by this Department 
has been greater than in previous years. Eighty-six parcels have 
been despatched, five new school outfits provided, and forty-eight 
families have been helped through the Working Parties registered 
here. It would be helpful if all Working Parties engaged in this 
splendid service would notify the details of their work to the 
Women's Guild office. Eighty-six parcels of clothing have enabled 
us to supply many demands and opportunities of service that 
it is impossible to record. These statistics are inadequate as an 
expression of the loving service rendered by those who contribute, 
or the gratitude of those who receive the gifts. This branch 
of our work must, of necessity, increase the expenditure of 
the Women's Guild Department, and we shall therefore welcome 
an increase in the number of Associate and Personal Members, 
whqse contributions, varying from 2s. 6d. to £1 Is. a year, will 
enable them to share in the varied services rendered by the Guild.

SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE REPORT. 

Chairman : Rev. W. J. McAdam, M.A. 

The Seven Point Programme. — When the year opened we had 
just prepared and issued a Seven Point Programme of Social 
Service for the guidance and stimulation of the Congregational 
Churches, asking that the Churches would put it into practice so 
far as they were able, and let us have the benefit of their comments 
upon it. Our work during the past year has been mainly occupied 
in presenting this programme to the Churches, in developing and 
applying it to meet the needs of different kinds of Church, and in 
preparing material to help the Churches to put it into effect. Whilst 
we have gathered considerable experience for its application in 
detail, we can still recommend this sevenfold outline very confidently 
to the notice of our Churches. 

Conferences. — For the purpose of presenting this Seven Point 
Programme to the Churches, visits have been paid by the Secretary 
or by a member of the Committee to a very considerable number 
of Churches, Ministers' Fraternals, and District and County Union 
Meetings. About forty Ministers' Fraternals, District or County 
Meetings have been visited in this way. An equal number of 
united meetings of other kinds have been addressed, and double 
the number of meetings held in separate Churches or Schools. 

County Activities. — Special reference should be made to the 
Social Service activities of certain counties or County Committees 
which may be of interest to other counties. Thus, the Yorkshire, 
Northumberland and Durham Unions have afforded our Secretary 
the opportunity to give a series of addresses at their Ministers' 
Summer Schools ; in both these Unions the Social Service and 
Temperance Committees have worked out detailed policies for their 
Social Service activities ; the counties of Gloucestershire and 
Herefordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire are co-operating 
to .adapt the Seven Point Programme to local requirements ; Hamp- 
shire has arranged a series of group conferences in three of its four 
chief centres of population as a beginning of a forward work in 
which the Young People's Committee is co-operating with the 
Social Service and Temperance Committee ; Monmouthshire is 
arranging for our Secretary to visit each of its separate centres 
for conference on the policy of the Churches with regard especially 
to the problems of industry ; London arranged at the Memorial 
Hall Library a very fine series of meetings running nightly for a 
week in March, and is now working for the preparation of a panel 
of speakers for the London area, and the appointment of Social 
Service Secretaries in each of the London districts. 

District and Local Representatives. — It is a foremost point in our 
immediate objective to secure the appointment of Social Service 



81 

representatives in every county and in every district which has a 
separate district organisation. At present there are about fifty 
such representatives. If every county and district had its repre- 
sentative there would be over a hundred. The appointment of 
these representatives is under consideration by several District or 
County Executives at the present time. 

We also renew our request to the Churches individually, to 
appoint each its own Social Service representative through whom 
we may be in touch with its Social Service activities and plans. 
At present only about fifty such representatives are enrolled. 

" News and Suggestions." — The establishment of these links with 
the Churches is important to us because of the opportunity it will 
afford us of learning what the Churches are doing or planning to do, 
and of putting into circulation the ideas thus brought to light. To 
make th'e links worth while to the Churcnes we are offering a 
quarterly or bi-monthly series of " News and Suggestions," free of 
charge, to all who are registered with us as the Social Service repre- 
sentative of their Churches or Districts. The sole condition is 
that the recipient will endeavour to use the information thus 
received. The District representatives will naturally receive more 
than the representatives of single Churches. 

Social Service Bulletin. — Meantime, in addition to this special 
service of communication with our Social Service representatives, 
we are sending out a Social Service Bulletin three times a year to 
every Congregational Minister on active service whose name appears 
in Lists A and B. During 1926 we sent out in this way :— 
The Seven Point Programme (in January). 
Two general Bulletins (in July and December). 
Enclosures dealing with : 

The Issues involved in the Coal Dispute (A Cambridge House 

Bulletin) ; 
The Need for Voluntary Housing Schemes under Christian 
Auspices (issued simultaneously in several other Denomina- 
tions) ; 
The Call to the Study of Industrial Issues from a Christian 
Standpoint (reprinted from the November Go-pec News). 
Joint Social Service Council. — In carrying out this programme we 
have been very greatly helped by the creation of a Joint Social 
Service Council, through which we can work in co-operation with 
the Social Service Committees of other Denominations, and especi- 
ally the Baptists and the Friends. Dr. Rushbrooke (the present 
Chairman of the Baptist Union) is Chairman of this Committee. 
Mr. Clifford Newton (the Secretary of the Friends' Social Service 
Work) is its Treasurer, and our own Secretary is Honorary Secretary. 
By the generosity of the Halley Stewart Trust the Council is pro- 
vided with the necessary funds to meet all its administrative charges, 



82 

procure material for circulation to the Churches, and publish it at 
easy rates for wide circulation, or gratis for the help of Social Service 
Secretaries. It was this Council that made possible the issue of 
the Housing Appeal and the Call to the Study of Industrial Issues, 
just mentioned, and it is going on to prepare a series of pamphlets 
on Present Day Opportunities for Social Service, and another on 
Present Day Problems in Industry and their Christian Solution. 

Co-pec Research, Group. — Whilst the above Council provides a 
useful means of co-operation with an increasing number of Christian 
Social Service Bodies engaged in educational propaganda, Copec 
remains the Body through which we are linked with the Christian 
Social thinking of the Churches as a whole. Our Secretary con- 
tinues to act as Secretary to the Copec Research Group studying 
the Social Function of the Church. The Group has published during 
1926 a volume of historical essays entitled " The Social Discipline 
of the Christian Community," the result of a Conference in 1925, 
and it is just now issuing its invitations to another Joint Conference 
in Easter Week of 1927, to which we are in a position to introduce 
delegates. 

Future Policy. — Looking to the future we are specially concerning 
ourselves in the year to come with : — 

(a) A Joint Policy of Educational Co-operation with the Young 

People's Department and the Temperance Committee ; 

(b) The Preparation of a Manual for Young Church Members ; 

(c) A Policy of Educational Activity in regard to International 

Questions. 

Finance. — During the year (as our accounts show) we have 
expended over £470 in all. Towards this we have received £100 by 
grant from the Union, £100 from the Halley Stewart Trust, £100 
from another single subscription, and £45 from other smaller 
subscriptions. The balance has come from preaching and other 
speaking fees received by the Secretary in excess of travelling 
expenses, from which source we obtained £137 gross. The increased 
amount expended this year on Bulletins and other publications is 
£54, and we do not think it unreasonable to ask that this amount 
should be covered in 1927 by a corresponding increase in personal 
subscriptions. 

The Secretary. — The year has been an outstanding one in the 
history of the Committee — a year of exceptional activity and 
progress. This is due in very large measure to the enthusiasm and 
energy of our Secretary, Mr. Malcolm Spencer, who in a compara- 
tively short time has made his influence felt throughout the country. 
A new interest has been aroused in our Churches generally and 
many are giving to the important work of Social Service a place 
which it has not hitherto occupied in their activities.

TEMPERANCE COMMITTEE REPORT. 

Chairman and Treasurer : Sir R. Murray Hyslop, J.P. 

We have arrived at something like the lull before the storm. 
During 1926, Temperance has not been a burning question. But 
it is essential that we keep on the watch. We, in alliance with 
kindred Societies, are doing our best to keep the Temperance issue 
to the front. The deferred and amended " Oxford " Bill has been 
introduced in the House of Lords by the Bishop of Liverpool, and, 
though the provisions of the Bill will not do all we ask, it deserves 
our careful consideration. 

Among our activities are the following : — 

County Unions. — The Secretary has visited several County 
Unions to present the Temperance Case either at afternoon 
Conferences or at evening Assemblies, and more than once he has 
preached the Union Sermon and so found a third opportunity. 
Other County Unions are to be visited in the Spring and Autumn 
of the coming year. 

The Churches. — It is very difficult to find an open door into the 
Churches, although Temperance services are more needed than 
ever. The Churches are asked to give this demand their urgent 
consideration, and the best way in which this can be done is in the 
course of the ordinary Sunday services. The Secretary will be 
glad to serve any Churches — free of all cost — wherever an open 
door can be found. 

The Northern Area. — The plans for the Northern Area launched 
two years ago, will be discontinued as from January, 1927. After 
a fair trial, it has been found best to carry on our Denominational 
Temperance Work — as with other departments of service — from 
one centre. Meanwhile, it is hoped that in each County Union 
some leader may be found to make this matter his special care, 
arid to secure that a question of such paramount importance is not 
overlooked and forgotten. 

Literature. — We sent out in the Spring to all our Subscribers and 
all Members of the Council, a Report and a Balance Sheet, showing 
our Receipts and Expenditure ; and in the Autumn the usual 
pulpit material for Temperance Sunday — prepared by the Secretary 
— was sent to every Congregational Manse in England and in the 
English portions of Wales. These " Pulpit Helps "—full of the 
latest facts and arguments — have been found very useful by our 
busy men. We distributed also large numbers of a Sermon, 
preached at Bolton by the Rev. R. W. Thompson to the Civic 
Authorities, setting forth the claims of the Temperance Movement 
upon our leaders in public life. 



85 

We circularise the London Churches in preparation for Brewster 
Sessions ; we also deal with the persistent pressure of the Drink 
Trade for the extension of hours in the Metropolitan area. This 
is also done locally in Yorkshire and elsewhere. We are again 
indebted to our colleague, Mr. G. B. Wilson, for a supply of the 
invaluable information compiled by him annually. 

Subscriptions. — We are extremely thankful to several of our 
leading Churches which have so readily responded to an appeal 
for their support. Given more generous help we could largely 
extend the field of our operations. Meanwhile we are doing the 
best we can with the means at our command. Thanks are cordially 
tendered to the Congregational Insurance Company for the kind 
renewal of its grant of £25. 

Correspondence. — We are glad to report that as an Intelligence 
Department our work is constantly increasing. The letter-box is 
fuller than ever, and the best possible attention is given to all inquiries. 
The Centre. — Here in London we take our full share in all public 
movements for the promotion of national sobriety. We are repre- 
sented on practically all kindred bodies, and bear our part in the 
various Conferences, Committees and Consultations held during 
the year. 

Young People. — There is a general feeling on all hands that in 
the matter of Temperance and Social Service far greater use should 
be made of the machinery of our Young People's Department, so 
as to secure that in the lesson schemes of the future there shall be 
definite and systematic temperance teaching. The three Secretaries 
have had several consultations already regarding the means and 
methods to be employed and — guided by the best expert information 
on these subjects — it is hoped before long to secure that all young 
people shall be soundly instructed in these matters that are so 
vital to their daily lives. 

The Chairman. — Lastly : it is with very great regret that we 
received this year a letter announcing the resignation of our honoured 
and beloved Chairman, Mr. Arnold Pye-Smith. Owing to his semi- 
retirement from business and his removal to the country, he found 
it would be impossible for him to continue at our head. For many 
years he has been a stalwart friend of Temperance. Besides being 
our own Chairman, he occupied the chair of the Executive Committee 
of the Temperance Council of the Christian Churches. Bearing an 
honoured name, he has added to the lustre of it by constant and 
unselfish services during a long span of years, and it is with great 
regret we contemplate his removal. The Committee has expressed 
the hope that we may still have the pleasure of his occasional presence. 
The Committee at its December Meeting unanimously desired 
Sir R. Murray Hyslop to accept the Chairmanship, and he has 
kindly consented to do so.

LAYMEN'S COMMISSION REPORT. 

Chairman: The Rt. Hon. Sir Albert Spicer, Bart. 

The question was raised at the meeting of the Laymen's Com- 
mission at Leamington, whether it is the usual custom of Churches 
to pay the rates on the manses, and it was pointed out that in some 
County Unions there were cases of men receiving an equal amount 
of grant (including the value of the manse), but that whereas in 
some instances the minister has to pay rates, in others the rates 
are paid by the Church. It was agreed that the County Unions 
be asked to place the matter before their Laymen's Committees 
and that steps be taken to gather information as to the number 
of ministers in each county who have to pay rates on the manses, 
and to report to the Laymen's Commission. This inquiry has been 
carried out, with the anticipated result, that this diversity in 
practice obtains not simply in different County Unions, but also 
in different Churches within the same county. The returns are 
not yet complete, and the matter is still under consideration. The 
usual inquiry has also been made as to the minimum salaries paid 
to ministers in different counties, and in this case also several 
counties have not yet sent in an answer to the inquiries. 

The Central Fund Committee has recently instituted a similar 
inquiry, and has asked the Laymen's Commission to co-operate 
with it in securing returns from all the counties as to the minimum 
salaries paid to List A men within their areas. 

The industrial troubles in 1926 have made it difficult for many 
of the smaller Churches to meet their financial obligations, but it 
is hoped that Churches everywhere will make great efforts to maintain 
their standard of salaries, and where the minimum falls below the 
standard which obtains in other parts of the country, to increase 
them.

College Board. — When in May, 1909, the Assembly of the Congre- 
gational Union of England and Wales adopted the scheme of the Central 
Fund for Ministerial Support, it recommended that action be taken to ensure 
the institution of a College Board on which all the colleges of the denomination 
and the Congregational Union of England and Wales should be represented. 
The suggestion arose out of the growing feeling that the colleges and the 
denomination would greatly benefit by full and frequent exchange of views 
and, so far as might prove possible, by closer co-operation in their mutual 
work. The idea was welcomed by the college authorities, and within a year 
the Board was constituted of six representatives from the Union and from 
each of the following colleges : New, Western, Yorkshire United, Cheshunt, 
Hackney, Lancashire, Mansfield, Nottingham, Brecon, and Bala-Bangor, 
and -later the offer of a seat on the Board was accepted by the 
London Missionary Society. 

The Board meets two or three times yearly, and already has done much 
to secure a common policy in many departments of the work of the colleges.

the full Arts as well as the full Theological course (the B.A. degree as well 
as jihe B.D. degree), the course is six years after Matriculation. 

No fees for tuition are charged, but each student is expected to pay £25 
per annum towards his board and lodging for about thirty weeks. The classes 
are held at New College, but the students reside at Hackney College. A 
student must be provided with a home in the vacations, and £20 to £25 a year

This Association originated in a general meeting of the Protestant Dissenters of London, 
held in November, 1732, called to consider an application to Parliament for the repeal of the 
Corporation and Test Acts. The want of a permanent body to superintend the civil concerns 
of Dissenters being strongly felt, it was resolved at a subsequent meeting, held in January 
1735-36, that Deputies from the several congregations in London should be chosen for that 
purpose. The first meeting of the Deputies was held at Salters* Hall, on January 12th 
1736-37, Dr. Benjamin Avery in the chair. ' 

The present duty with which the Deputies charge themselves is, to see that the Civil 
and Religious Rights of Dissenters are not infringed, and to help in forwarding Parliamentary 
measures which will promote the interests of Nonconformists. 

The Dissenting Deputies have the right, in conjunction with the General Body of Protestant 
Dissenting Ministers of the Three Denominations (Congregational, Presbyterian, and Baptist) 
of personal approach to the King. '

LEGAL INFORMATION ON MATTERS AFFECTING 
NONCONFORMISTS. 



The following is a short statement of some of the principal provisions of the Laws specially 
affecting Dissenters, Dissenting Places of Worship, Rating, Income Tax and Insurance and 
other matters. The information does not pretend to be exhaustive, and for fuller particulars 
on many of the subjects reference should be made to the Acts of Parliament affecting them 
or to the Public Offices or to Legal Advisers. 



CHARITABLE TRUSTS. 

The Charitable Trusts Acts give the Charity Commissioners very extensive jurisdiction 
over all charitable trusts (except certain exempted charities), and empower the Commissioners 
to inquire into the management of charities, to oblige their trustees to render accounts to 
advise such trustees on the administration of the trusts, to authorise or direct legal proceedings 
to be taken, to authorise the granting of leases and making of improvements and raising of 
money by mortgage, to authorise trustees to remove schoolmasters and other officers to 
authorise the sale, exchange, or partition of lands, to remove and appoint trustees and to 
make new schemes for the administration of charities. Among the charities exempted from 
the operation of these Acts are any buildings registered as places of meeting for religious 
worship with the Registrar- General of Births, Deaths, and Marriages, and bona fide so used 
Exempted chanties can, by application under sections 14 and 15 of the Act last referred to 
have the benefits of the Acts extended to them. 

Educational charities are under the jurisdiction of the Board of Education. 



CHAPELS, REGISTRATION OF. 

It is desirable that all Dissenting places of worship should be certified to the Registrar- 
General in order that they may be recorded in his Official List. Forms in duplicate on which 
L°i Lm a r Bu f ll ^ ng „ ls u * ed f . or worship are obtainable on application to the Superin- 
fh» d a ? a f',Sn^ St fIf«? f 9 th L R f glstrat ^ n D ll rict ^ n which the Biding is situated, to whom 
the statutory fee of 2s 6d. is payable. After the certification has been recorded, one of the 
Certificates is furnished to the applicant. Should this be lost or destroyed, a certified copy 
of the record issued under the Seal of the General Register Office can be obtained from the 
Registrar- General on payment of a fee of 2s. 6d. The Registrar-General's Official List of 
Buildings certified for worship can be inspected at any Superintendent-Registrar's office on 
payment of a fee of Is. 

Charitabfe re Tru P t aC A te* WOrship bona fide so used are e *«°P* from the provisions of the 



104 LEGAL INFORMATION. 

When a certified place of worship has been entirely rebuilt, no portion of the old fabric 
being incorporated in the new structure, the original certification ceases to have effect, and 
re-certification becomes necessary (if desired). 

The Registrar- General has decided that he will consider that the registration certificate 
" applies to the Church or Chapel itself, and also to any room or rooms or hall attached 
thereto, whether under the same roof or not, provided that a means of internal communication 
exists between the Church and the rooms." On the other hand, the certificate " will not 
apply to an adjacent room or hall even under the same roof as the Church if there be no 
internal communication. 

The Registrar- General adds, however, that any schoolroom or other building which is used 
for religious worship may be certified separately. 

With a view further to settling clearly the identity of the premises which are included in 
the certificate, the Registrar- General requires that in the case of new certifications a rough 
sketch plan showing clearly the position of any adjacent building which belongs to the Church, 
and the means of entrance from the Church, shall be furnished to him. Also when any altera- 
tion is made to a registered building, which has the effect of opening up a fresh room or 
of disusing a room, this fact must be mentioned to him that it may be noted. Those who 
have to do with certifications of our Churches should be careful to see that the regulations are 
complied with, as the validity and extent of registration of Chapels and buildings for marriages 
is also involved. 

The Charity Commission has power to define the area covered by a registration. 



LEASEHOLD ENFRANCHISEMENT. 

The Places of Worship (Enfranchisement) Act (1920). Under this Act all religious bodies 
are now able to obtain a secure tenure of the property which they hold on a lease (originally 
of not less than a sixty years term) by purchasing the absolute freehold interest, subject to 
the payment of fair compensation. But in determining the amount of compensation the 
value of the buildings on the land is to be excluded, and no allowance is to be made for 
compulsory purchase. 



DISTURBANCE OF RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

By 23 & 24 Vict., cap. 32, sec. 2, it is enacted that any person guilty of riotous, violent or 
indecent behaviour in England or Ireland, in any church, &c, or in England in any place of 
religious worship duly certified under 18 <fe 19 Vict., cap. 81, whether during Divine service 
or at any other time, or in any churchyard or burial ground, or who shall molest, let, disturb, 
vex, or trouble, or by any other unlawful means disquiet, or misuse any preacher duly 
authorised to preach therein shall, on conviction, be liable to a penalty of not more than £5 
for every offence, or to imprisonment for any time not exceeding two months. By 24 <fe 25 
Vict., cap. 100, sec. 36, protection is given to ministers in the discharge of their duty, persons 
obstructing being guilty of a misdemeanour. 

APPOINTMENT OF NEW TRUSTEES. 

New Trustees of property held upon charitable trusts may be appointed under the general 
law, now codified in the Trustee Act, 1925, or under the special provisions of an Act of 1850 
(13 and 14 Vic. c. 28), generally known as Sir Morton Peto's Act, and the Acts of 1869 and 
1890 extending it. When the Trust Deed gives directions as to the appointment of new 
Trustees the appointment can be effected in the manner, and by the persons, provided by 
the Deed. If there are no such directions, or if all the Trustees are dead or other difficulties 
exist, recourse may be had to Peto's Act. By a resolution of the Church Congregation Society 
or body of persons interested in the Charity the trust property vests in the new trustees by 
virtue of the resolution alone. But the resolution must be evidenced in the form prescribed 
by Peto's Act as follows : —

chapel situate in the parish of in the county of

The Stamp Duty on this Memorandum is Ten Shillings. 

If none of these methods of appointment are feasible, resort should be had to the assistance 
and powers of the Charity Commission. 



TRANSFER OF OHCRCH PREMISES OR OTHER PROPERTY TO THE CONGREGATIONAL UNION OF 
ENGLAND AND WALES (INCORPORATED), OR TO LOCAL UNIONS (INCORPORATED). 

The Union and many of the County Unions have become Incorporated, or have formed 
parallel Incorporated Associations to act as trustees for them and subject to their control, 
under the special clauses of the Companies' Acts which relate to bodies not formed for the 
purpose of profit. 

The Congregational Union of England and Wales and several of the County Unions have 
adopted the latter course, and a considerable number of Churches and also other properties 
have already been transferred to be held, either according to the Memorandum and Articles 
of Association of the Incorporation, or upon the trusts under which the various properties 
themselves were held. 

The Congregational Union of England and Wales (Incorporated) has now been authorised 
by the Lord Chancellor to act as a Trust Corporation under the Law of Property Amendment 
Act, 1926. This enables the Union to act as sole trustee of chapels and charities. 

Any Incorporated Union desiring a similar authority should apply to the Lord Chancellor. 

The advantage of incorporation is chiefly that the Union remains a trustee in perpetuity, 
and the difficulties which constantly arise owing to the deaths of individual trustees or their 
ceasing to be members of Congregational Churches, and the expense which is involved in 
removing those difficulties, are avoided for the future. 

The Congregational Union of England and Wales (Incorporated) has issued the following 
statement with reference to the terms upon which it undertakes Trusteeship : 

" The Council deems it desirable that the position and the responsibility of the Union 
in accepting the trusteeship of chapel properties should be definitely formulated so that there 
should be no misapprehension, either as to the legal obligations which the Union accepts, 
or as to the service which it undertakes to render. The considerations which lead the Union 
to become the sole trustee of a chapel property are two-fold : (1) That the property may best 
be safeguarded thereby from the danger of alienation from the Congregational body, and 
(2) that the Trusteeship becomes permanent, expense and trouble attending the appointment 
of new trustees being entirely avoided. 

" The Union does not undertake to discharge functions other than the ordinary functions 
of trustees of chapel properties : for example, it does not undertake to maintain buildings 
nor to keep them in repair, nor to erect buildings when the property is a bare site. 

" The function of the Union as Trustee is the same as that of individual trustees. It is 
defined, and governed, by the terms of the trust deed of the property, and the Union does 
not carry on, nor intervene in, the ordinary work of the Church, nor administer its affairs. 

' * Particularly the Union cannot under any circumstances become responsible for the 
payment of any Loans, or interest on Loans, secured upon the property but requires the 
Church to be responsible and to pledge itself thereto by special resolution. 

"It is also a condition of the Trusteeship that the Church should, when required, present 
for inspection the receipts for the payment of interest, Are insurance and other insurance 
premiums, ground rent and other such outgoings, and the property must be insured in an 
office, and at a value, approved by the Union, the Policies to be in the name of the Union 
and to be kept with the title deeds. 

" Churches desiring the Union to become Trustee of their property should send : 

" 1. The Deeds of the property, for inspection by the Union's solicitors free of charge ; 
after such inspection the solicitors will quote the probable cost of carrying through the 
whole transaction. 

" 2. A certified copy of the resolution of the Church expressing that desire and signify- 
ing its consent to the above conditions. 

" 3. Evidence of the consent of the existing Trustees." 

Copies of the Model Trust Deed may be had of the Publication Department of the Con- 
gregational Union of England and Wales, price Is. ; also a form of Agreement for Tenancy 
of a Manse, price 6d. ; and a Manse Model Trust Deed at Is. 6d. 



CHAPELS, REGISTRATION OF, FOR MARRIAGES. 

A place of worship must, before marriages can legally be celebrated therein, in addition 
to being certified, as above mentioned, be separately registered for the performance of 
marriages. Before registering a place for marriages, the Superintendent-Registrar of the 
District must be satisfied by certificate that the building has been used for worship for one 
year previous to the application. A fee of £3 is payable, and the Registration is advertised 
in the London Gazette and in a local newspaper. When a chapel ceases to be used for worship 
or is rebuilt, no portion of the old fabric being incorporated in the new structure, the certificate 
is cancelled, and in that case it requires to be renewed if worship is resumed. When a 
congregation has removed from one chapel to another, and the old building has ceased to 
be used as a place of public worship, the certificate of the old chapel may be cancelled and 
the new building registered for the solemnisation of marriages, without waiting for a year 
to elapse. All necessary forms and information will be supplied by the Superintendei.t- 
Registrar of the District. 



106 LEGAL INFORMATION. 

MARRIAGE ACTS — DISSENTERS. 

1. — Marriages in United Kingdom. 

[The law regulating Dissenting Marriages is contained in five Acts — viz., the 6 & 7 Will. IV. 
cap. 85 ; 1 Viet., cap. 22 ; 3 & 4 Vict., cap. 72 ; 19 & 20 Vict., cap. 119 ; Marriages Hours 
of Solemnisation) Act, 1886, and the Marriage Act, 1898. The subjoined Abstract is confined 
to the points useful to Free Church ministers and others. When further particulars or explanations 
are required, they may always be obtained from the district registrars or superintendent-registrars 
of the district.] 

Marriages at Places of Worship. — No marriage may be solemnised in any registered place 
of worship without the consent of the minister, or of one of the trustees, owners, deacons, or 
managers thereof, or, in the case of a Roman Catholic chapel, of the officiating minister, or 
in a church belonging to the Establishment, of the minister thereof ; nor, in the latter case 
by any other than a duly qualified clergyman, or with any other forms than those of the Church. 

Performance of Marriage. — Marriage in a registered place of worship must be performed 
between eight a.m. and three p.m., with open doors, and in the presence of the registrar of 
the district and two or more witnesses. Any form or ceremony may be adopted, provided 
that in some part of it each of the parties shall declare—" I do solemnly declare that I know 
not of any lawful impediment why I, A. B., may not be joined in matrimony to C. D. ; " and 
that each of the parties shall say to the other — " I call .upon these persons here present to 
witness that I, A. B., do take thee, C. D., to be my lawful wedded wife [or husband]." 

Marriage may also be celebrated at the office and in the presence of the superintendent- 
registrar of the district ; but no religious service is to be used in such case. 

The registrar is to enter the marriage in his register-book, the entry being signed by the 
person officiating, by the registrar, the parties married, and by two witnesses. 

Religious Service after Marriage. — If, where a marriage has been contracted at a super- 
intendent-registrar's office, the parties wish to add the religious service used by the church 
or persuasion to which they belong, the minister thereof, or some one appointed by him, may 
perform such service on the production of the certificate of the marriage, and the payment of 
the customary fees, if any. Nothing, however, in such service is to be held to invalidate the 
marriage previously contracted, nor is it to be recorded in the parish register of marriages. 



Marriage Act, 1898 (61 62 Vict. cap. 58). 
Sec. 2 4 3. Extent of Act.-— The Act came into operation on the 1st April, 1899, and 
applies to England and Wales, but not to Scotland and Ireland. Nor does it 
Sec. 13. apply to Marriages of Jews or Members of the Society of Friends, as Marriages of 

these persons are already regulated by special Acts. 

Sec. 4. It enables Marriages to be performed without the presence of the Registrar, 

in buildings which, for the time being, are registered for solemnising Marriages 

Sec. 6. under the Act of 1836; but only if an official witness in the Act called an 

Sub-sec. 3. " Authorised Person " is present. It is optional with the parties to be married 

whether they avail themselves of the Act or not, but the Act will apply unless, 

Sec. 5. at the time when the Certificate or Licence is applied for, the Superintendent 

Registrar is informed that the presence of the Registrar is desired. 

Steps to be taken by the Parties to be Married. — There is no alteration in the 
present procedure up to the time of the issuing by the Registrar of his Certificate, 
or Certificate and Licence ; the existing law as to notices, &c, remaining unaltered. 
If the parties do not give notice to the Superintendent Registrar that they desire 
the attendance of a Registrar at the Marriage, the issue of the Certificate, or 
Licence (as the case may be), will be accompanied by printed instructions in a 
form to be prescribed, for the due solemnisation of the Marriage without the 
Registrar's attendance, and the person receiving the Certificate, or Certificate 
and Licence, should be careful to obtain these instructions. 
Sec. 6. The Marriage must then be solemnised in a building registered for Marriages ; 

"Sub-sec. 2. in the presence of the " Authorised Person " and two other witnesses. 
Sec. 6. At the ceremony, two declarations must be made, as at present, by each party 

Sub-sec. 1. married, in the words set out in Section 6 Sub-section 1 of the Act. The declara- 
tions are as follows : — 

" I do solemnly declare that I know not of any lawful impediment why 
I, A. B., may not be joined in matrimony to C. D." 

" I call upon these persons here present to witness that I, A. B., do take 
thee, C. D., to be my lawful wedded wife [or husband] " ; or in lieu thereof 
the words following : — 

" I, A. B., do take thee, C. D., to be my wedded wife [or husband]." 
Sec. 7. Immediately after the ceremony an entry of the Marriage must be made in 

Sub-sec. 1. duplicate in two separate Registers, and must be signed by the parties by the 

" Authorised Person," and by the two witnesses. 
Sec. 6. Mode of Appointing the " Authorised Person." — He is to be a person authorised 

Sub-sees. to act by " the Trustees or other Governing Body " of a building registered under 
3 <fc 4. the Marriage Acts, and his appointment must be certified both to the Registrar- 
General and to the Superintendent Registrar of the district in which the building 
is situate. 

The Act does not define the " Governing Body," and it is presumed, therefore, 
that the terms of the Trust Deed of each particular building will determine who, 
or what, is the " Governing Body " ; but generally speaking it will be found 



LEGAL INFORMATION. 107 

that in Presbyterian Churches the Board of Elders, and in Baptist and (Jon- 
Sec. 6. gregational Churches " The Deacons," or " The Church," will be the " Governing 
Sub-sec. 3. Body." It will be noticed, however, the Sub-section 3 of Section 6 is framed 
in the alternative, and that either " Trustees " or " Governing Body " may 
authorise and certify under the Act. 

There may be more than one " Authorised Person " to act for a particular 

place of worship. And an " Authorised Person " once appointed and certified 

may act in any registered building in the Registration district in which the 

particular building in respect of which he is authorised is situate. 

Sec. 16. The mode in which the Certificate confirming the appointment of the 

Sub-sec. D. " Authorised Person " is to be given will be prescribed by the Registrar General. 

Sec. 6. Duties and Qualifications of the " Authorised Person." — He must be present 

Sub-sec. 2. at the Marriage when the declarations are made. 

Sec. 7. He must require the Certificate, or Certificate and Licence, to be handed to 

Sub-sec. 1 . him, and immediately after the Marriage must enter it in the duplicate Registers, 
and see that the entries are signed by the parties, himself, and the two witnesses. 
Sec. 7. He must apply for the necessary books to be supplied to him by the Registrar- 

Sub-sec. 2. General, and must not allow any Marriage to be solemnised until the Registers 
Sub-sec. 3. have been so supplied. 

Sec. 11. He must once a quarter deliver copies of the entries in the Registers to the 

Sub-sees. Superintendent Registrar, as provided by Section 11, and will be allowed 6d. for 

1 & 2. every entry. 

Sec. 11. He must allow searches in the Registers, and give certified extracts, in the 

Sub.-sec. 4. same way as Rectors, Vicars, or Curates do. The fee for a search extending over 

a period of not more than one year being Is., and 6d. additional for every additional 

year, and for each Certificate 2s. 6d. 

Sec. 12. He will be guilty of an offence under the Act if he refuse or fail to comply 

with the provisions of the Act, and will be subject to penalties. 
Sec. 16. The Registrar-General has made rules respecting his duties, which will, of 

Sub-sec. C. course, have to be complied with. Copies of these rules can be obtained from 
the Registrar- General. 

Nothing is said in the Act as to the qualifications of the " Authorised Person," 
but the following points seem clear : — 
He should live near the building in which he is to act. 

He should have a sufficient command of his time to be able to meet the con- 
venience of the parties to be married. 

He should be able to conduct correspondence and be correct and business-like 
in the discharge of duties. 

As no fees are payable to him in respect of his attendance at Marriages he 

should either be a man who does not require payment, or his remuneration should 

be provided by the Church. The Act does not say that the " Authorised Person " 

shall not be a female ; it is presumed, therefore, that a woman may be appointed. 

Sec. 7. General Provisions. — In this Section, special provisions will be found in reference 

Sub-sec. 4. co the custody of the Registers, Certificates, &c. These must be very carefully 

Sec. 8. complied with ; as unless all is done in this respect, which the Registrar- General 

Sec. 11. tonsiders necessary, he may decline to allow Marriages to be solemnised under 

Sub-sec. 3. the Act. 

Seel 6. Marriages in Wales may be celebrated in the Welsh tongue. 

The Registrar- General has power to make (with the approval of the Local 
Government Board) rules for all the purposes of the Act. Copies of these rules 
should be obtained by every " Authorised Person," and should be carefully 
observed. 



BURIALS UNDER THE ACT OF 1880. 

The laws relating to the provision and management of parish cemeteries are very com- 
plicated ; but information on the subject can be obtained on application to the Secretaries 
of the Liberation Society, 6, Caxton House, Westminster, S.W. ; or of the Dissenting 
Deputies, 4, Broad Street Place, Finsbury Circus, London. Copies of the Act and forms 
of notices under it may be obtained through the Secretaries. 

It may be noted, however, that under the Act of 1880 a burial may take place either without 
" any religious service " or " with such Christian and orderly religious service " at the grave 
as the person responsible for the burial may think fit, and " any person or persons " — whether 
ministers or laymen — who may be invited or authorised may conduct such service, or take 
part in any religious act thereat. The words " Christian service " include " every religious 
service used by any church, denomination, or person professing to be Christian." 

The clergy gf the Church of England are at liberty to use the burial service of that Church 
in any unconsecrated burial ground, or in the chapel therein. The relatives may have such 
service performed in unconsecrated ground by any clergyman of the Church of England 
who may be willing to perform the same. 

In cases where the Church of England service cannot legally be used, and in any other 
case, at the request of the relatives, the clergy may use some other than the ordinary burial 
service of the Church of England, provided that it has been approved by the Bishop, and 
is taken wholly from the Bible and Prayer-Book. 



108 LEGAL INFORMATION. 

BT/RIAI ACT, 1900. 

This Act made some important alterations in the law in regard to consecration of burial 
grounds, allotments, chapels, chaplains, and otherwise, and removes many grievances and 
disabilities under which Dissenters have suffered. 

Consecration. — The Burial Authority may apply to the Bishop to consecrate any portion of 
the burial ground approved in that behalf by the Secretary of State, but if the Burial Authority 
does not make an application, after being requested so to do by a reasonable number of 
persons affected, the Home Secretary may apply to the Bishop to consecrate, and the Burial 
Authority can then be compelled to make the necessary arrangements, the costs being paid 
by those requiring consecration. 

Chapels. — The Burial Authority may erect at their own costs upon ground not consecrated, 
nor specifically allotted to any denomination, any chapel they may consider necessary, but 
such chapel erected under this Act shall not be consecrated, nor reserved for any denomina- 
tion. The authority may also, at the request and cost of any denomination in the district, 
erect and maintain a chapel for general services according to the rites of that denomination. 
Apparently such a chapel must be erected on consecrated ground, or on ground allotted 
to the denomination in question. If the Authority refuses such a request they may be com- 
pelled by the Home Secretary to comply. 

Fees.— All fees are to be approved by the Home Secretary and are to be identical for conse- 
crated and unconsecrated ground. Such fees are to be paid to the Burial Authority and 
transmitted by it to the minister. No fees are payable in a burial ground affected by this 
Act to any incumbent for permission to erect a monument or otherwise, or to the church- 
wardens for any customary or legal fees. The incumbent is only entitled to fees for his 
services like any other officiating minister, but where such extra fees are now payable they 
will continue to be paid during the incumbency of the present incumbent or during 15 years, 
whichever period is the longer, but the Burial Authority and the incumbent may agree on 
a commutation of all such fees. No other ecclesiastical officials are entitled to fees except 
the sexton, whose fee is fixed by the Burial Authority. 

Inquiries by Home Secretary. — The Home Secretary may, if he thinks fit, hold inquiries 
into any question of consecration, chapel fees, or otherwise, and may make any order he 
thinks just as to costs. 

Unconsecrated ground may not be used for any purpose other than burials except by leave 
of the Local Government Board. 

The Incumbent is still bound to officiate at the burial of his parishioners. No chaplain 
can now be appointed by the Burial Authority. 

Notice of burial must be given to such person as shall be appointed for the purpose by the 
Burial Authority, and with such notice as it may require. 

Allotments. — The law as to allotting portions of the burial ground to denominations remains 
unaltered. 

N.B.— This Act applies to all burial grounds managed by a burial board or any council, 
committee, or other local authority having the powers and duties of a burial board, and to 
any local authority maintaining a cemetery under the Public Health (Interments) Act, 1879, 
or under any local Act. 

It does not, however, apply to parish churchyards. 



ASSESSMENTS OF CHAPELS FOR TAXES AND RATES; EXEMPTION FROM. 

1. Taxes are imposed under the Income Tax Acts, and are charged upon the annual values 
of all landed properties unless they come under one or other of the following three exceptions : — 

(a) Annual value of property occupied as Colleges or Halls in any Universities, or 
(6) As Hospitals, Public Schools, or Almshouses. 

(c) Rents and profits of lands, etc., belonging to any Hospital, Public School, or Alms- 
house, or vested in Trustees for charitable purposes, so far as the same are 
. applied to charitable purposes. 

The claim for exemption, therefore, in the case of Chapel properties depends on whether 
they are used, or the rents and profits applied, for charitable purposes. This is a question 
of fact in every case. Where Church premises are used solely for religious purposes they 
are clearly exempt, as the religious use has been held by the courts to be charitable. But 
where, as in many cases, Chapel premises are put to various uses, such as the holding of public 
meetings, lectures, and concerts, it would rest with the Commissioners of Taxes in the district 
to say whether the use is religious and charitable or not, and, probably in every case where 
a charge is made, or a profit is derived from any meeting or gathering, the Chapel would so 
far be held to be assessable. 

Until recently it was held that the exemption (c) quoted above referred only to cases where 
the premises were let and the rents and profits so derived applied for charitable purposes, but 
that when the premises were occupied by the Trustees of the Charity, or by persons in 
their employ, the exemption was not admissible because the Charity could not then be said 
to be receiving rents and profits, or to be applying them, for charitable purposes. This 
distinction has, however, now been removed by Statute, except that no exemption is allowed 
in respect of any part of the premises occupied by any person in the employ of the Trustees 
whose income exceeds £150 a year. 

Where Manses or other property are let by the Church, to the minister or otherwise, and 
the rent is paid to the Church, repayment of Income Tax Schedule A can be claimed. 

2. Rates. Premises are exempt if exclusively appropriated to public religious worship 
and duly certified for such purpose. But such parts of the premises as are not so exclusively 
appropriated, and from which any rent, profit, or advantage is received, are liable to be rated. 



LEGAL INFORMATION. 109 

The principle of this exemption is the same as that in the case of property tax but the 
phraseology is different, the words " exclusively " and " profit or advantage " being introduced 

A greater difficulty will be experienced, no doubt, in consequence of these words in satis- 
fying the Rating Authority, and in a comparatively large number of cases it will probably 
be hard to prove that there is no profit or advantage derived from the lettings, and that the 
use for religious and charitable purposes is exclusive. What profit and advantage are the 
Court only can decide, but it has been settled that even if the profit or advantage goes to a 
charitable object, as is usually the case, the premises are liable to be rated. 

Generally a compromise is advisable, such as a slight, or even nominal, assessment. The 
risks of going to the Court are so considerable, and the cost so great, that it would seem usually 
desirable to compromise the claim by arrangement with the assessing Committee The 
Committees are usually willing to come to reasonable terms with the Churches. 

Water Rates on Chapels have been revised under the provisions of the Water Board 
Charges Act, 1921. Strictly speaking the eharges are payable on the basis of the annual 
value of the premises, which, in the event of dispute, can be settled by the Justices. The 
Board, however, arrive at the annual value by commuting the previously agreed charge 
which was arrived at on the basis of the seating accommodation, at five per cent. If for 
instance, £3 has been paid hitherto annually, the annual value at five per cent, becomes £60 
on which the Board has the right to charge, until April, 1923, eight per cent., that is £4 16s. 0d' 
per annum. 



INCOME TAX OF MINISTERS. 

A Minister may claim deductions in respect of the following: — 

(a) Any expenses incurred by him wholly exclusively and necessarily in the performance 
of his duty as a Minister. 

Under this paragraph (a) a Minister may claim deductions for : — 

(1) Travelling expenses necessarily incurred by the Minister in performing his 
duty of pastoral visitation. * 

Under this head would be included bus and tram fares, or the running cost and 
wear and tear (proportionate to the use thereof for official purposes) of such means 
of locomotion belonging to the Minister as motor-car or bicycle where the circum- 
stances or size of the Minister's district necessitated the employment of such means 
for the proper performance of his duties (e.g. where the Minister has pastoral charge 
of two or more village churches). 

(2) Out-of-pocket payments for stamps, stationery, telephone, telegrams, etc. 
incurred in the performance by the Minister of his duties. *"'»»» 

It is important that records of the expenses under the headings (1) and (2) should 
be kept by the Minister, but where no records have been kept in the past it is 
suggested that the claim might be based upon a reasonable estimate of the expenses 
incurred, and this could be discussed with the Inspector of Taxes. 
(6) Where the Minister pays rent for a dwelling house, or is in the occupation of a 
dwelling house but pays no rent therefor, and uses any part of such house mainly and 
substantially for the purpose of his duty as a Minister, he may claim as an expense a 
corresponding part of the rent or annual value of the house, not exceeding one-eighth 
s S.J*f2 r ? nce t0 A ( fe )— sometimes called the study allowance— nothing beyond one- 
eighth of the rent or annual value (not of the net assessment) will be allowed e e 
no allowance can be claimed for proportion of local rates, lighting, heating or servants' 



(c) Locum tenens during Illness.— Where a Minister is incapacitated through illness from 
performing his duties, the cost necessarily incurred and paid by him in providing a 
locum tenens may be claimed as a deduction. p 8 

Deductions not allowed.— -It may be observed that no allowance is admitted in respect of :— 

(1) Charitable subscriptions by a Minister, or cost of hospitality. 

(2) Expenses of pulpit supply during holidays if any such expenditure is borne by the 

(3) Allowance for books.— Claims are normally refused in respect of the cost of books 

on the ground that the expenditure is not incurred " wholly, exclusively and 
necessarily in the performance of his duty as a Minister." 
An allowance for books was refused in a case taken to the High Court in 1890. 

v,„?w / r^5lT/-Tw h vf re v, a Ma ¥ e is P rovided «"* occupied rent-free by a Minister who 
has not the right to let the house, he may nevertheless require that for any year the annual 
vaue assessed to Income Tax Schedule A (Property Tax) after deducting from the annua 
value any ground rent or other charges on the property (whether paid by the Minister or 
by Trustees) shall be treated as part of his earned income. 

♦h Not iS?i,H t1 ^ 8 e K eCt - i8 « J 1 uired t0 be g iv en to the District Inspector of Taxes not later 
than 30th September in the year concerned, or where the occupation of the house by the 
Minister commenced after 30th June in that year, within three months of the date of 

OCCltpft vlOU • 

rrJl^^^tV^ b ^ n .«j ven in anv year ^ need not be specifically claimed in subsequent 
years during which the Minister remains in occupation. 

Superannuation.— The Commissioners of Inland Revenue have decided to allow Income 



110 LEGAL INFORMATION. 

Tax relief in respect of payments made by Congregational Ministers under annuity contracts 
with :— 

(1) The Congregational Ministers' National Provident Society as regards Ministers 

whose names are included in " List A " of Ministers accredited to the Congregational 
Union as set out in the Congregational Year Book. 

(2) The Prudential Assurance Company under the Superannuation Scheme which was 

arranged with that Company in 1903. The relief in this instance will extend to 
all Ministers and others who have entered into contracts under the provisions of 
that Scheme. 
This relief came into operation as regards : — 

(1) for the year 1924-25, i.e. for the financial year beginning on the 6th April, 1924 ; and 

as regards 

(2) for the year 1920-21. 

Claims of repayments as regards (1) will be admitted for the years 1924-25, 1925-26 and 
1926-27, and as regards (2) for the six years 1921-22 to 1926-27 inclusive. 

For the current year 1927-28 Ministers entitled to relief should claim the appropriate 
allowance before payment of the tax to the Collector of Taxes. 

In future years the particulars of these payments must be entered on the Income Tax 
Return in space Section J, " Relief in respect of Life Assurances or contracts for deferred 
annuities," and the receipt if required should be produced to the District Inspector of Taxes. 

Instructions on this matter have been issued to H.M. Inspectors of Taxes by the 
Commissioners of Inland Revenue. 

Ministers should also note that they are entitled to the statutory deduction (at present 
one-sixth, with a maximum of £250) in respect of earned income, and also to deductions for 
children, Life Insurance premiums, dependent relatives incapacitated by old age or infirmity, 
and other allowances specified in the Form of Return issued annually, which should be care- 
fully read. 

These notes relating to Income Tax have been submitted to and approved by the Inland 
Revenue Department. 

Income Tax Schedule A. is payable for 1927-28 in one sum instead of in two instalments 
except where chargeable in respect of income which is or is to be treated, as earned income 
(e.g. Schedule A. tax on Rent-free Manses). 

For 1928-29 the assessments under Schedule D. and Schedule E. on salaries, fees, pensions, 
and other emoluments are to be based on the income for the year preceding the year of assessment. 



ENTERTAINMENT TAX. 

The Act creating the Entertainment Tax is known as " The Finance (New Duties Act), 
1916." 

It provides that an Entertainments Duty shall be charged on all payments for admission 
to any entertainment at varying rates, and that tickets of admission shall be stamped with 
a stamp denoting that the duty has been paid, and no person shall be admitted without such 
a ticket. The rate of tax has been frequently varied by subsequent Acts. 

An " Entertainment " includes any exhibition, performance, amusement game or sport, 
to which persons are admitted for payment, with certain exceptions contained in Section 1, 
Sub-Section V. of the original Act. 

Sub- Section V. relieves a good number of entertainments such as are conducted in chapels 
from the necessity of paying duty, as it provides that duty shall not be chargeable where the 
whole of the takings are devoted to philanthropic or charitable purposes without any charge 
on the takings for expenses. Also, where the Commissioners are satisfied that the whole 
of the net proceeds are devoted to philanthropic purposes, and that the whole expenses do 
not exceed 50 per cent, of the receipts, they must repay the entertainments duty, but of 
course in the latter case the duty has to be paid first. 

There are other exceptions (b) where the entertainment is wholly educational or where 
the entertainment is provided for partly educational or partly scientific purposes by a society 
or committee not established for profit. 

The 1924 Act provides for exemption in the case of an entertainment promoted by a Society 
or Institution of a permanent character, established or conducted solely or partly for 
philanthropic or charitable purposes, or by two or more such Societies acting in combination, 
where the whole of the net proceeds of the entertainment are devoted to philanthropic, etc., 
purposes. Ordinary church funds have been considered as coming within this Section. 

In all cases where exemption is claimed, prior application must be made to the local 
Customs and Excise Officer. He will supply forms for a return of duty. He should be 
consulted before the meeting in any doubtful case. 



THE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION ACT, 1925. 

Under this Act Employers are liable to compensate all persons under a " contract of 
service " with them (unless, in the case of non-manual workers, they are in receipt of an 
income of more than £350 per annum) in respect of accidents arising out of and in the course 
of their employment. 

Employers protect themselves against this liability by voluntary insurance with any Society 
which undertakes to cover such risks. 

The Minister of a Church is not under a " Contract of service." His is a vocation, not a service . 



LEGAL INFORMATION. Ill 

An evangelist in the direct employment of a County Union or other auch body has been held 
by the Ministry of Health not to be under a contract of service, but this decision is under 
discussion. 

Manual workers, and non-manual workers in receipt of an income of not more than £350 
per annum, employed by a Church should be insured, such as : — 

The Chapel-keeper, and where there is an understanding (written or otherwise) that the 
wife or any member of the family helps, the helper also ; any charwoman or other person 
eniployed regularly, though for only a part of a day a week ; the grave-digger, if any, the 
organist and blower and members of the choir, if paid ; also any paid Sisters, Bible-women 
or nurses. Casual workers do not come under the Act. 

It is desirable also, where the Chapel-keeper regularly employs any charwoman or other 
person to help, other than a member of his family dwelling in his house, that an insurance 
should be taken out in the name of the Chapel-keeper in respect of the persons so helping 
him, as he would be liable to compensate them under the Act as their employer. 

The above recommendations apply also to persons engaged in connection with Mission! 
and Sunday Schools. 

All persons effecting an insurance should be careful to see that the company with which 
they insure is thoroughly sound financially and that the policies taken out cover all risks 
under the Act. This last point is important, as in the forms suggested by some companies 
there are words to the effect that " the insurer must take reasonable care," etc., and the 
insertion of these words may involve difficult questions if a company chooses to contest a claim. 



ACCIDENTS. 



The law as to the liability of a Church for accidents befalling persons (other than its own 
servants) upon the trust premises may be briefly summarised as follows : — 

1. In the case of persons not paying for admission the Church is responsible only when 
" gross negligence " is proved against it, that is, for instance, when the accident arises from 
a danger in the nature of a " trap " such as an unguarded hole in the floor or other danger of 
a like kind. 

2. In the case of persons paying for admission greater care is required of the owner of the 
property, and he is responsible for accidents arising from his " ordinary negligence," that is, 
for instance, for accidents due to the general ill repair of the premises. 

3. Where premises are let to other Societies the owner of the premises is liable for accidents 
arising out of the condition of the buildings. The case for such responsibility is stronger 
when those who use the premises are too young to appreciate dangers which would be obvious 
to and easily avoided by persons of more mature years. For quite a moderate premium 
complete indemnity against all liability may be obtained. 

Note. — The law as to accidents occurring to servants of the Church is of course governed 
by the provisions of the Workmen's Compensation Act (above). 



NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE ACT, 1924. 

WIDOWS, ORPHANS AND OLD AGE CONTRIBUTORY PENSIONS ACT, 1925. 

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE ACT, 1920. 

Insurance is compulsory under these Acts for practically all persons between 16 and 70 
years of age employed under a " contract of service " whose rate of remuneration does not 
exceed £250 per annum or who are Manual Workers. Among the exceptions is employment 
involving part-time service only as Bible-woman, chapel-keeper, lay preacher or Scripture 
reader. Part-time service as bell-ringer, member of the choir, organ-blower, organist or 
other musician, is also excepted if given in or about a place of religious worship. 

Further, as regards Unemployment Insurance, a person whose service is of a domestic 
nature (e.g. caretaker) is outside the scope of that Act if the employment does not exist for 
the purpose of gain. 

Contributions are paid by affixing stamps to contribution cards which should be obtained 
by the insured person (a) for Health and Pensions Insurance from an Approved Society ; 
(b) for Unemployment Insurance from the Local Employment Exchange. Emergency 
Health and Pensions Insurance cards can, however, be obtained from any Post Office. 
Contributions recently paid in error may be refunded. 

Decisions on individual cases can be obtained from the District Inspector of the Ministry 
of Health (Insurance Department) whose address can be obtained from the nearest Post 
Office. 

All persons over the age of 65 who duly paid Health Insurance contributions are now en- 
titled to an Old Age Pension of 10s. per week (with an extra 10s. for a wife over 65) without 
any restriction on account of means or nationality. Claims for these and also for widows 
and orphans' pensions must be made promptly on forms obtainable from the nearest Post 
Office. 

Briefly put, the Statutory Conditions for the payment of Contributory Old Age Pensions 
are : 

(a) Five years' continuous insurance. 
(6) A minimum of 104 contributions. 

(c) An average of 39 contributions for the last three contribution years (which end 
in June). For this test only, the weeks of unemployment count as contributions.: Certain 



112 LEGAL INFORMATION 

elderly persons may substitute 26 for 39, but in that event cannot include weeks of 
unemployment. 

For a Widows or Orphans Pension, it is necessary that : 

(a) The husband was insured for 104 weeks and paid 104 contributions, 
(ft) If 208 weeks have elapsed since entry into insurance, an average of 26 contribu- 
tions (including weeks of unemployment) were paid in the three preceding contribution 
i years. 

It should be noted that once a person has entered insurable employment he or she has 
valuable rights of paying contributions for weeks of sickness or unemployment until 104 
are paid. Further, certain Men over 60 and certain Women over 55 may likewise pay con- 
tributions to safeguard pension rights. In each case contributors must inform their Society. 
It is well to observe that this new scheme of Contributory Pensions does not replace the 
previous arrangements under the Old Age Pensions Act. 

No person can obtain a pension under both schemes, but where a Man or Woman over 70 
has not qualified for a contributory pension, payment may be obtained under the old scheme 
with, of course, the same restrictions as to means and nationality. It should be noted that 
the age is reduced from 70 to 50 in the case of a person who is so blind as to be unable to 
perform work for which eyesight is essential..

BOLTON— DEANE NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL. 

The New Sunday School which was opened on September 24th, 1927, 
entirely free of debt, is situated on a site adjoining the church. Increasing 
attendances and the growth of the district having necessitated the provision 
of more adequate accommodation, the Bolton Group Churches undertook to 
find the money needed for the new building. 

The school has been planned for an attendance of 350 scholars in accordance 
with the latest principles of Sunday school work, and will also be used for 
worship while the present building is being renovated. 

The central Assembly Hall has a seating capacity of 225, and the platform 
is arranged in the recessed end with a separate approach. It is flanked by 
class-rooms, each section, Beginners, Primary, and Juniors, having its own 
accommodation with separate entrances and cloak-rooms. Men's and women's 
class-rooms and cloak-rooms are also provided, together with an institute. 

The new school is built of patent facing bricks and Portland stone dressings, 
roofed with blue Valenhelli slates. 

The lighting is well arranged and the low-pressure system of heating has 
been installed with separate controls. 

The ventilation system is simple and thorough. 

The building has been designed by Messrs. Ormrod, Pomeroy and Foy, 
F.R.I.B.A., Bolton, and the contractors are Messrs. James Cocker, Ltd., of 
Walkden. 

EALING CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH— NEW BUILDINGS, 
INCLUDING LITTLE CHURCH. # 

During 1926 the Church decided to build three small subsidiary halls in 
order to carry on graded school work. To each of these a special characteristic 
has been given : (1) Church Parlour, (2) Club Room, (3) " Little Church " for 
devotional use. 

The last of these has a small nave to seat a hundred persons, divided from 
the aisles by pillars from which springs a barrel roof. There is also a chancel 
with a small recess in which stand a communion table and five Flemish leather 
chairs of the Huguenot period. It was opened in July, 1926, and is used for 
children's worship on Sunday mornings and also as a Sunday school department. 
The devotional services of the church are also held here. Architect : Mr. Percy 
Morley Horder. 

GOODMAYES CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. 

A perspective view of the exterior of this building, which is in course of 
erection, is shown. The church has a bold central gable with a three-light 
traceried window, and single-light windows in recesses on each side, and 
massive square pinnacles with recessed traceried panels on each flank. The 
building is entered in front through a bold semi-octagonal projecting porch 
having a deeply recessed central doorway leading to a spacious vestibule, and 
thence through swing doors into an inner lobby upon each side, with a second

pair of inner doors leading to the side aisles. The seating is arranged in a semi- 
circular form on plan so that every member of the congregation will face the 
preacher, and the floor will fall in all directions towards the pulpit, which will 
stand upon a semicircular platform. The choir will be accommodated in 
raised seats grouped around the pulpit, the organ being placed behind the 
pulpit in a recessed chamber. A vestry is placed on each side of the apse 
with lobbies and lavatory accommodation to each, and separate exits in the 
rear. 

The church will accommodate about 520 persons. 

The heating will be by hot-water pipes and radiators, and electric light and 
accelerated ventilation with stand-by gas lighting in the lobbies, etc., in case 
of emergency, will be installed. The church will be faced externally with dull 
red multi-coloured bricks, the roof covered with hand-made red tiles, the 
dressings and tracery windows being of stone. 

The walls internally will be finished in sand-faced stucco, the windows 
glazed with lead lights, and the pulpit, seating, dado, etc., in wax polished oak. 
The contract amount is £8,557, and is being executed by Messrs. H. Knight & 
Son, of Tottenham, N. 

The architects are Messrs. George Baines & Son, F.R.I.B.A., A.I.Struct.E., 
121, Victoria Street, S.W. 



PITSEA CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, RECTORY PARK DRIVE, 

PITSEA. 

The church is designed and built to obtain the maximum of accommodation 
at the minimum of cost and is being erected in two sections, the first section 
to accommodate about 350 ; when completed, 500. 

The building is of simple Gothic design, with rock-face concrete blocks 
relieved with irregular insertions of broken flints and sand-faced red bricks. 
The heavy piers give pleasing effect as well as solidity of purpose. The roof 
is constructed of Oregon pine principals, purlins and matching covered with 
russett-brown Trafford tiles. The interior consists of central nave and two 
side wings with two aisles, large platform and two vestries. Central heated 
and gas lighted. 

Estimated to cost, with seating, lighting, etc. (complete) the first section 
about £2,000, when completed, £3,500. 



RADFORD, COVENTRY, CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, NEW 
SCHOOL HALL. 

The new building is to be used at the present for the dual purpose of church 
and Sunday school, and has been planned accordingly. The accommodation 
consists of a school hall 48 feet by 36 feet, with front entrance lobby. Two 
large class-rooms are provided for young men's and women's classes to be used 
during church services by the choir and minister, and approached by side 
passages leading to the rear of the premises. A suitable kitchen is provided 
with heating chamber under, and a low-pressure hot-water heating apparatus 
is installed. 

Provision has been made for a future extension when the two class-rooms 
can be thrown into the main hall and new class-rooms erected on the site at 
the rear. 

The building has a pleasing elevation of Haunchwood pressed red facing 
bricks, with artificial Portland stone dressings. 

The contract price for the building is £3,198, and furnishings, etc., will 
bring the total cost to about £3,500. In addition to this, the site, including 



124 ARCHITECTURAL DESCRIPTIONS. 

land large enough for the erection of a permanent church in the future, cost, 
with fencing, nearly £1,000. 

The cause has been established over 100 years as a branch of West Orchard 
Congregational Church, Coventry. The church is now situate in the heart 
of a large population, and is the only Nonconformist church in the neigh- 
bourhood. 

The architect is Mr. Claude Redgrave, L.R.I.B.A., and the contractors 
Messrs. Jervis Bros., both of Coventry. 

SOUTH OCKENDEN CONGREGATIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL. 

The site of the new Sunday school is on the main road, to the north of the 
church. It is being built to replace the old British school now dilapidated, 
insanitary, and totally inedequate for the present needs of the school. 

It is to be a brick building covered with Courtrai tiles and will consist of a 
main hall to accommodate 300, a small hall (for Primary Department) to seat 
about 50, two small vestries and ample cloak-room accommodation. 

Special care is being taken to provide plenty of light and adequate ventila- 
tion. Both the lighting and the heating will be by gas. 

The building generally will possess a bright and cheerful appearance and is 
eminently suitable for Sunday school purposes. The total cost is estimated 
at £1,800. 

The foundation stones were laid on October 26th, 1927, and the opening 
will take place at Easter. 

The architect is Mr. Christopher M. Shiner, R.I.B.A., of Grays, and the 
contractors are Messrs. Hall Bros., of Whitehall Road, Grays. 

WALLINGTON CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. 

The church now being erected occupies a commanding position on the 
corner of Stanley Park Road and Holmwood Gardens, at the rear of which 
site stands the existing church hall. The new buildings will be linked up with 
the existing, and when complete will provide a church seating about 400, 
with nave, transepts and chancel all seating being on the ground floor level, 
church hall, class-rooms, Primary -room, vestries, etc. % 

The design of the church is in the Byzantine style, faced with artificial 
stone and mottled bricks and roofed with sand-faced pantiles. 

Internally, a feature is made of the semicircular vaulted fibrous plaster 
roof, whilst the walls will be finished in stucco with brick dressings to piers, 
bases and cornices. The joinery work generally will be of Columbian pine, 
stained and waxed. 

The buildings will be heated throughout on the low-pressure system and 
wired for electric light. 

The cost of the work now being carried out is about £6,000, and the contract 
will be completed early in the new year. 

The architect is Mr. Percy W. Meredith, F.R.I.B.A., 34, Old Queen Street, 
S.W.I, and the contractors are Messrs. J. Longley & Co., Ltd., of Crawley,

128 MINISTERS DECEASED. 

ALEXANDER, Thomas Henry, was trained for the ministry at New 
College. After a successful course of study he entered upon his first pas- 
torate at Rugeley, Staffordshire (1893-99). Removing to Albion Church, 
Hull (1899-1907), he did excellent service for nine years, before under- 
taking the charge of the church at Maldon, Essex (1907-27). 

In the dreary years of the war the church had to face many difficulties 
and Mr. Alexander lost his eldest son. He did useful work on the Board of 
Guardians and the sub-committee for Education, and was local secretary of 
the branch of the League of Nations Union. 

He was greatly interested in the young people of his church and organised 
the Society of Christian Endeavour. 

During the last three years forty-eight young people were received into 
the fellowship, nearly all of whom are engaged in the work of the church. 

He died on Sunday, May 22, 1927, greatly beloved. J. W. 



ANTLIFF, Samuel Robert, was born in Liverpool on August 21, 1851, 
and died at Southport on July 21, 1927, aged seventy- five. He was brought 
up in Primitive Methodism by his father, Dr. W. Antliff, and began to 
preach and earn money at the early age of fourteen, and never cost his 
father a penny after that age. All his college fees he paid himself. He was 
trained" for the ministry at Lancashire College. His activities as a Con- 
gregational Minister extended from 1874-79, Oak Street, Accrington ; 
1879-85, Cannon Street, Preston ; 1885-91, Ramsden Street, Huddersfield. 

Mr. Antliff had never thought of such a thing as a Congregational In- 
surance Company until early one morning, nearly thirty-seven years ago, he 
had a dream, and in this dream his late father suggested to him that he 
should found a Company for Congregationalism. Dr. W. Antliff was 
reputed to have been one of the founders of the Primitive Methodist In- 
surance Company ; at any rate he was greatly interested in the formation 
of that Company. The very day of the dream Mr. Antliff approached the 
Congregational Union, but they could not take steps in the matter as many 
considered such a venture would be a failure. Nothing daunted however, 
he set to work to form the Company, supported by such men as the late 
Mr. W. Crosfield, of Liverpool, and Alderman Woodhead, who joined the 
original Board, and having obtained necessary capital, the venture was 
launched in July, 1891. Its success has exceeded all expectations. His 
original intention was to return to the Ministry after seeing the Company 
well on its feet, but owing to the strong pressure of his co-directors he 
decided to give his whole time to the Secretaryship and Management, and 
it is owing to his great foresight, thoroughness and efficiency that the 
Company has progressed so well. 

It is a sad coincidence that Mr. Antliff passed away just after what has 
turned out to be the close of the most successful year in the history of the 
Company. The Company's financial year ends on the fifteenth of July, 
and he died on the twenty-first. Of the original members of the Board 
there are only three survivors, viz., Rev. W. F. Clarkson, B.A., of the Isle 
of Wight ; Rev. E. J. Dukes, of London ; and the Rev. J. P. Perkins, of 
London. Mr. Antliff held the secretaryship for thirty- two years (1891- 
1923), when he became Managing Director. During the whole of that 
period he never missed attending a single Board Meeting. He had been 
blessed with unusually happy relations with his colleagues, and continually

expressed his gratitude for the help he always received from them. In his 
active days he worked morning, noon and night for the Company, and his 
work at times entailed a great deal of self-sacrifice. 

Through the profits of the Company many denominational societies and 
special efforts have benefited by substantial amounts, and hundreds of 
pounds in this way have been distributed. W. J. A. 



ATT WELL, William, was born in London in 1835. In his youth he was 
a keen worker in Lord Shaftesbury's Ragged Schools in East London. 
Coming under the influence of CardinalNewman for two years he worshipped 
alternately in his parish church and at Brompton Oratory. As the result 
of his studies he finally became a Nonconformist and entered Hackney 
College in 1865. 

After two years as assistant at Castle Street, Reading (1868-70) he 
offered himself to the London Missionary Society and, directly after his 
marriage to Gertrude, daughter of the Rev. Geo. Moore, of Wingrave, was 
sent to Madagascar (1870-74) where he did much pioneer work. Owing to 
ill-health he returned in 1874 and settled in Potterspury. This charge he 
left in 1877 to rebuild the church at Thorfield, which done, he accepted the 
pastorate at Newmarket the following year till 1883. After a four years' 
interval he went as Pastor to Bradford-on-Avon in 1887 and retired in 
1898. His last official act was his participation in the Bradford Parish 
Church at the United Service at the termination of the War. 

A generous sympathetic nature, a man of indomitable courage, he stood 
" four square to all the winds that blew." He died February 13, 1927.

BAIRSTOW, Mark, was born in Castleford, Yorks, February 28, 1859, 
and died at Liverpool, September 8, 1927, aged sixty-eight, after forty- 
three years' service in the ministry. 

He commenced his career as a glass-blower, but soon found that his 
tendencies were towards spreading the Gospel of Christ, and he formed 
the Red-Ribbon Army and built " Bairstow's " Tabernacle in Knottingley, 
Yorks. During these early days he was a leader in the agitation against 
Roman Catholicism at the time of the secret Oxford Movement. 

By self-education and close study he qualified for the Methodist ministry 
and held pastorates at Bond Street and Well Street, Birmingham. He 
followed Dr. Leach at the Birmingham Town Hall Sunday afternoon 
lectures, where he drew crowded audiences. 

Through the instrumentality of Rev. Nicholas Knight he went over 
to the Congregational Church, and the late Rev. Dr. Charles Berry 
pioneered his admission into the Congregational Union in 1894. He held 
the following pastorates: Salem, Great Bridge, West Bromwich (1894- 
1908) ; Hope, Hanley (1908-12) ; Hindpool Road, Barrow-in-Furness 
(1912-16) ; Emmanuel, Rainhill, Lanes. (1916-25). 

Mr. Bairstow's main work in the Congregational Churches was at Salem, 
Great Bridge, where he served over fourteen years. He had a wonderful 
dramatic power, being able to have his audience in laughter and tears 
within the short space of five minutes. When given the call to this 
church he only accepted on condition that it would become self-supporting, 
and Salem is still an unaided church.

Mr. Bairstow was an author, lecturer and missioner. 
He leaves a widow, four sons, and three daughters. His eldest son is 
pastor of Wycliffe Congregational Church, Alfreton. L. V. B. 



BARKER, Thomas John, was born at Llannilleth, Newport, Mon., 
October 3, 1866. 

He was trained for the Congregational Ministry at Nottingham College 
and held the following pastorates : St. Stephen's (C.H), Rochdale (1895- 
98), Hindpool Road, Barrow-in-Furness (1898-1906) ; Read and Rishton 
(1906-08) ; Cherry Tree, Blackburn (1908-16) ; Richmond, Salford (1916- 
23); and Huyton (1923-26). In 1926 he was compelled to retire owing 
to a serious breakdown in health. 

He served on the Barrow School Board, was Secretary of the Blackburn 
S.S.U., and delegate to the National Conference. He also was on the 
Executive of the Lancashire Association of S.S.U.s, and was President of 
the Salford S.S.U. In the various Free Church Councils he held offices of 
President and Secretary. He died May 9, 1927. J. W. 



CHISHOLM, James Wilson, of Dallam House, Saltaire, who died on 
July 27, at the age of eighty-five, began his ministerial career with the 
United Methodist Church in Cornwall. He served, among other places, 
at Burslem and Russell Street, Liverpool, and at the end of 1887 entered 
the Congregational ministry as Pastor of Range Bank Church, Halifax. 
He accepted a call to Ravensthorpe in March, 1890, and remained there 
eighteen years. , There he built up a strong and nourishing church. For 
the children he had a special place in his heart. On one occasion a small 
boy rang Mr. Chisholm's door-bell to inquire if he could come out and 
play with him. He was a witty and acceptable political speaker, and 
served also for many years on the Dewsbury Board of Guardians, of 
which he was Chairman for three years. The P.S.A. Movement found 
him ever ready to help. That which lifted him to the place that he 
occupied in the hearts of his people was that he was in truth a minister 
of God. As such he is remembered first and last. After his retirement 
in 1908 he became a deacon at Saltaire Congregational Church. A. C. 



CLARKE, Thomas, was born at Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire, April 5, 
1850. Always desirous of entering the ministry, he was received into 
Rotherham College in 1872, winning the only scholarship then awarded — 
the Hansell Scholarship. In August, 1877, he was chosen as assistant 
pastor to the late Dr. Campbell at Horton Lane Congregational Church, 
Bradford, and was put in charge of the daughter church at Little Horton 
(1877-1901). A few years later Little Horton separated from its mother 
church and Mr. Clarke became its first minister. There he continued nearly 
twenty-four years a succesful ministry. 

In 1901 he resigned his pastorate and was engaged in teaching with 
occasional preaching until he accepted an invitation to Low Row, Swale- 
dale, Congregational Church (1902-22). As a teacher he chiefly taught 
languages and was in charge of the Latin Class at Carlton Street Evening 
School, Bradford.

He left Low Row at Easter, 1922, and took charge of a small day school 
and chapel at Thornton Rust, near Aysgarth, Wensleydale. In September 
he finally retired to live with his son at Evesham and passed away on 
January 18, 1927. 

Always interested in education and largely due to his efforts institutes 
were built at Low Row and Thornton Rust. He was one of the founders 
of the Yorkshire Dialect Society and its secretary frOm 1898-1908, and 
later was elected a vice-president. As a minister his ready sympathy and 
earnestness caused him to be widely esteemed. On his retirement both 
from Little Horton and Low Row he received presentations. 

He married on February 4, 1879, Henrietta, second daughter of Thomas 
Carr, of Edlington, Doncaster. He leaves a widow and two sons.

COOKSLEY, William James, born April 10, 1835, at Torquay, Devon, 
was prepared for the ministry by the Rev. Nicholas Hurry, Pastor of Abbey 
Road Church, Torquay, who recommended him to his first pastorate at 
Killamarsh, Derbyshire (1877-82). He then removed to West Melton, 
Yorkshire (1882-95) where he exercised a faithful ministry for thirteen and 
a half years. At Stanley, Wakefield (1895-1900) he further ministered 
until his retirement to his native town of Torquay. There he rendered 
assistance to various churches by occasional services. He passed away 
April 21, 1927, aged ninety-two. * . . W. A. B. 



COWLEY, Joseph Freeman, was born at Northampton, February 8, 
1859. He was trained for the ministry under Dr. Caleb Scott at the Lan- 
cashire Independent College. His first pastorate was at High Street Chapel 
Lancaster (1885-1909), where he remained for over twenty-three years.- 
After working for some time in connection with the Mansfield House 
University Settlement he accepted the pastorate of the Congregational 
Church at Erith (1909-12), Kent, and later ministered at Belvedere (1918- 
20) and Mitcham (1920-24). 

Mr. Cowley was a great student and his sermons always bore the stamp 
of thoughtfulness and careful reading. During his retirement he became a 
member of Purley Church to which he rendered valuable service, especially 
in connection with the Lay Preachers' Association. 

Rather late in life he married Miss Bell, daughter of Dr. Bell, a predecessor 
in the pastorate at Lancaster. 

Mr. Cowley died suddenly at Wallington on May 13, 1927. 



DARLOW, Thomas Herbert, M.A., was born at Ramsey, Hunts, and 
educated at Clare College, Cambridge, Lancashire College, and Leipzic 
University. He was a mathematical master before entering the ministry. 
His first pastorate was at Crosby Congregational Church, Liverpool 
(1885-91). Then he was Warden of Browning Hall, York Street, Wal- 
worth, London (1891-92), and later minister at New College Church, 
South Hampstead (1892-98). His true life-work was as Literary Super- 
intendent of the British and Foreign Bible Society, to which he gave twenty- 
five strenuous years. A man of sound, shrewd sense, illumined by a fine gift 

7 






132 MINISTERS DECEASED 

of humour and a rare geniality of spirit, he had friends in every theological 
camp and in many camps not theological at all. His historical catalogue 
of the printed editions of the Bible was the product of painstaking erudi- 
tion, while the letters of Borrow which he resuscitated from the archives 
of the Bible Society made a valuable contribution to literature. His 
Life of Sir William Robertson Nicoll was at once his magnum opus 
and a revelation of his own candid and honest spirit. Only a few days 
before his death there was published a volume of Frances Ridley Havergal's 
writings, with a delightful appreciation from Mr. Darlow's pen. He was 
a frequent contributor to The British Weekly and occasionally he wrote 
for The Christian World. 

Herbert Darlow (wrote one who had known him intimately for forty 
years) had a real genius for friendship, which embraced all sorts and 
conditions of men. He was most human, and though no one could be 
more earnest and devout in the pulpit, there was no one who could enjoy 
more heartily a good story. His laugh was infectious. With working 
men he had the gift of winning their entire confidence. While he was 
still an undergraduate at Cambridge he spent a large part of one summer 
vacation as member of a North Sea fishing crew. Long afterwards, when 
he was with the Bible Society and lived at Pinner, he gathered all the 
miscellaneous working men of the neighbourhood into a week-day " Pipe 
Parliament," where all matters religious and social were talked over. 

At the time of his death Mr. Darlow was Chairman of the Directors of 
the Independent Press, Ltd., in connection with the Congregational 
Union of England and Wales. 

Mr. Darlow's books included " Christmas Poems," " The Print of the 
Nails," " The Upward Calling," " God's Image in Ebony," and "At Home 
in the Bible." 

He died suddenly in Naples on Sunday, October 23, 1927, aged sixty - 



DAVIES, Edward, was born at Penddol, Llanbrynmair, Montgomery- 
shire, on August 12, 1853. His mother died on hie birth, but a foster- 
mother was immediately forthcoming, who by strange coincidence adopted 
another motherless infant simultaneously, and no true brothers for their 
lifetime had stronger affinity. 

He was received a member of Hen Gapel, Llanbrynmair, by Dr. Owen 
Evans, when thirteen years old. Early in life he was taught the tailoring 
trade. Removing to Brynamman, Carmarthenshire, his remarkable in- 
tellectual gifts constrained the church at Gibea, with its pastor, the Rev. 
J. Morlais Jones, to persuade him to enter the ministry, and he, with three 
other young men who became eminent also, after a short period at a 
preparatory school, entered Bala College. 

On February 14 and 15, 1881, he was ordained minister of Ebenezer 
Church, Abercynffig. A happy pastorate for both church and pastor was 
in full evidence for a considerable period, but a great blow was sustained by 
the Church when the Park Slip explosion occurred on August 26, 1892, and 
thirty-one male members were lost. Still, being an optimist, Mr. Davies 
fought bravely, and the church flourished again. During recent years he 
suffered from frequent spells of ill-health until in June, 1920, he relinquished 
his charge much to the regret of those by whom he was so highly esteemed. 
He died on July 16, 1927.

Widely known as a preacher of rare qualities, he was in great demand by 
other churches. His exceptional fervency in prayer marked him as unique 
in worship. His care of his flock was unsurpassed, and his memory will 
long remain as a sacred perfume in the locality where his personality was a 
tower of moral strength. He leaves a widow and three daughters to mourn 
his departure. D. W. 

DAVIES, John Alford, B. A., B.D., was born April 23, 1863. He was a son 
of Rev. Thomas Davies, of Shiloh Welsh Independent Church, Llanelly. 
Educated at the Athenaeum School of his native town, he matriculated at 
London University in the first division in June, 1881, entered Cheshunt 
College in September of the same year, and after taking his B.A. degree 
left in 1886 to take charge of the church at New Barnet. While there 
he became B.D. of St. Andrews, and in 1895 was elected Chairman of 
the Herts Union. For thirty-one years he remained in New Barnet, 
winning great popularity in the neighbourhood and far beyond. In 1917 
he removed to Week Street Church, Maidstone. In 1924 he returned to 
Hertfordshire, accepting the oversight of the church at Radlett, but 
after eighteen months' service there he was stricken with what proved 
to be a fatal illness, and retired at the end of 1926. He died April 19, 
1927, at St. Albans, whither his family had removed in the early part 
of the year. The funeral service was held in his old church at New Barnet, 
on April 22, and was conducted by the Revs. S. I. Blomfield, J. G. Hender- 
son, and W. E. Jenkins. The interment was at Bell's Hill Cemetery, 
High Barnet. 

The incarnation of geniality, an accomplished scholar, a striking pictorial 
preacher, Mr. Davies published a volume of sermons, " Seven Words of 
Love," and a small descriptive and gossipy guide to the Barnets. 

J. G. H. 

DAVIES, William Dyfodwg, was born at Merthyr in 1862. As a 
youth he entered the scholastic profession, but soon there awakened 
within him the desire for service as a Christian minister. He entered 
New College, London, where he held the Bennet-King Scholarship. The 
year 1888 brought to him an invitation to the pastorate of Libanus Con- 
gregational Church, Morriston, Swansea. While quite a young minister 
he served upon the Swansea School Board for six years. He became 
known also as a sane and powerful political speaker. His election to 
the Executive Committee of the South Wales English Union was not 
long delayed, and he passed ultimately into the Chair of the Union. In 
him the weaker churches always found a sympathetic and strong advo- 
cate. Under his care the church at Morriston was able to erect a new 
schoolroom, to obtain a new organ, and to clear a considerable debt, from 
which it was free at the time of his death. 

September, 1927, brought to a close a ministry of thirty-nine years, 
all spent in the service of Libanus. He died at the age of sixty-four, 
and leaves a widow, whose tact and fidelity considerably enlarged his 
influence, two daughters, and three sons, one of whom is the Rev. Selwyn 
Davies, of Walkden Congregational Church, Lanes. S. D. 



EDWARDS, James, was a native of Cardiganshire, but commenced 
to preach at Hermon Church, ^Conwil, Carmarthenshire, and after a 



134 MINISTERS DECEASED 

preparatory course at the Newcastle Emlyn Grammar School entered 
the Brecon Memorial College. 

At the close of his college career he accepted an invitation to become 
the minister of Libanus Church, Ebbw Vale, Mon., where he was ordained 
in 1868. In 1877 he removed to take charge of the church at Llanbadarn, 
Cardiganshire, and after ministering there with great success he settled 
at Neath in 1883. 

For several years he was a member of the Neath Board of Guardians, 
the School Board, and at the time of his death was one of the managers 
of the Neath Group of Glamorgan Council Schools. The Nonconformist 
religious services as at present carried out at the Neath Poor Law Insti- 
tution by dissenting ministers are a memorial to a great stand he made 
at a meeting of the Board of Guardians over the question several years 
ago. Mr. Edwards was a most popular preacher. He filled the Chair 
of the South Glamorgan Congregational Union and also of the Glamorgan 
Welsh County Assembly. 

He relinquished his charge of Zoar Church two years before his death, 
having held the pastorate for forty-two years. The last public service he, 
performed was to preside at the induction meeting of his successor. He 
died at the residence of his daughter at Merthyr Tydfil, October 19, 
1927, aged eighty-six, leaving two sons and three daughters, his wife 
having died some years previously. * R. O. E. 



EVANS, D. Wynne, was born at Llanybyther, South Wales. After a 
brief time in the railway service, he entered Bala College, and was ordained 
at Llanrwst. He was presently called to larger responsibilities in 
South Wales, where he for several years ministered to the church at 
Llanelly, associated with the early ministry of the late Rev. Ossian Davies. 
Eventually he entered the English ministry, serving the churches at Queen 
Street, Chester (1897-1909), and Llandrindod Wells (1909-12). Removing 
to London, he rendered excellent service to the Metropolitan churches — 
east and west. He was suddenly called home on May 31, 1927, leaving 
a widow and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss. As a preacher 
— in Welsh and English — he occupied a deservedly high position, and 
was one of the best-known members of the London Congregational Union. 
But he will be affectionately remembered — not alone for his gifts and 
services, but for his delightful personal character. A large and repre- 
sentative assembly gathered round his grave, at Aberavon, where he was 
laid to rest at the age of sixty-six. T. E. D. 



FERGUSON, John Hall, M.A., was born April 27, 1854, in Glasgow. 
Educated in Preston and for four years at Glasgow University where he 
took his M.A. degree. He then entered the Lancashire Independent 
College, Whalley Range, Manchester, gaining the Sharrock Scholarship. 
After a three years' Theological course at Manchester, he was appointed in 
February, 1881, as minister to the Walton Congregational church, Liver- 
pool. This was his only charge. In 1901 the church was removed from 
Walton Park and rebuilt in Rice Lane, Walton. 

In 1891 he married Miss Alison R. Gibson, daughter of Jas. Gibson, of 
" The Shaws," Ettrick, Selkirkshire ; his wife died in February, 1912.

During the whole of the War he was officiating minister at the 
Fazakerley Hospital. 

He was Chairman of the Walton School Board until Walton was taken 
over by the Liverpool Authorities, and was also Chairman of the Manage- 
ment Committee of the Rice Lane Council School. 

He retired in December, 1918, after thirty-eight years in the ministry. 

His death, on Friday, August 26, 1927, was very sudden, he having only 
returned on the previous Monday from a three weeks' holiday in Scotland 
(age seventy- three years). 

He leaves one son and one daughter. C. A. F. 



FOSTER, James, was born in London on March 28, 1839, and entered 
into rest on July 1, 1927, at the age of eighty-eight. 

His first pastorate was at Hartland (1876-79) where he spent three happy 
years. In 1879 he became the pastor of Adsett Congregational Church, 
Westbury- on- Severn (1879-86), and there he was instrumental in estab- 
lishing two new stations and purchasing a Manse. He was called to the 
pastorate of North Place Church, Cheltenham (C.H.), in 1886, where he 
remained until his retirement in 1920. 

He was a man of untiring energy. His many activities embraced the 
pioneering in Cheltenham of the P.S.A. movement, the Boys' Brigade, 
Christian Endeavour Societies, and the St. John Ambulance Classes. He 
was twice president of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, and had 
been president of the Cheltenham Free Church Council, the Christian 
Endeavour Union, and the Sunday School Union, of which he had also been 
secretary and examiner. . A. C. F. 

GEDDES, James, passed away on February 23, 1927,at the age of eighty- 
six. He was born in Rathven, Banffshire, in 1841. At an early age he 
went to Glasgow and became a journalist. There he came under the 
influence of an evangelist, discarded Catholicism, in which he was reared, 
and become a Free Churchman. 

Trained at Hackney College, he accepted in 1868 the pastorate of Bexley 
Heath Church, where he stayed until his retirement in 1920, when he moved 
to Eltham. He visited his people regularly, and had the great gift of finding 
a point of contact with all. He was keenly interested in philanthropic and 
educational work, and proved himself to be a warm friend of working 
people. He received calls to more important churches, but always refused 
to leave Bexley Heath. After his retirement he preached frequently in 
Eltham and neighbourhood, and continued his work up to a fortnight of 
his passing. 

His pastorate of fifty-two years in one church is almost a record in the 
ministry. J. A. 

GREGORY, John, was born on February 11, 1850, at Barking, Essex. 
Having shown a vocation for the ministry he took the full course of study 
at Hackney College. 

He began his ministry as assistant to the Rev. W. Thomas at Queen 
Street, Leeds, with the charge of the recently-started branch church at 
Oak Road (1873-94). A fine edifice was built in 1876, the church ultimately 



136 MINISTERS DECEASED. 

became independent of Queen Street, and Mr. Gregory was chosen as its 
first minister. He laboured at Oak Road for twenty-one years with con- 
spicuous devotion ; saw the church grow into maturity, and loved every 
stone in its fabric. He was of a very sympathetic nature, a real pastor to 
his people, took a deep interest in the welfare of the district, and was one of 
the pioneers of the Brotherhood movement. 

In 1894 he accepted the pastorate of Adelphi Chapel, Hackney (1894- 
1902) which, owing to rapid social changes in the district, soon proved to be 
a struggle against overwhelming odds, until his health was shattered and 
he had to retire from active service. During his retirement nothing cheered 
his spirit more than converse on the great themes of the Christian pastor, 
or talks with old friends of bygone days in Leeds. The jubilee of Oak Road 
Church took place the year before he died, and his brief address at the 
evening service will long be remembered. 

He died on February 5, 1927, at Ilkley, where he had lived for the last 
few years. He is truly described by one who knew him well as " a real 
Christian gentleman." E. B. 

GRIFFITHS, William, was born at Craigcefnparc, Swansea Valley, in 
1856. Blessed with godly parents, when very young he was received 
into church membership at Pantycrwys Congregational Church. 

After preparatory training at Llangadog School, he entered the Presby- 
terian College, Carmarthen, where he remained four years. On completing 
his course, in 1883, he took charge of the Maenygroes and Nanternis Con- 
gregational Churches, near New Quay, Cardiganshire, where his ministry 
has been marked by the rebuilding of Maenygroes Chapel in 1900, and 
the provision of a commodious schoolroom and manse. 

He took a leading part in connection with education and other public 
movements in the County of Cardigan, being an alderman and a past 
Chairman of the County Council. Owing to failing health, in 1920 he 
retired from the pastoral charge of Maenygroes and Nanternis Churches, 
where he had successfully laboured for thirty- eight years. 

He passed away in October, 1927, at the age of seventy-one, and leaves 
a widow and one son to mourn their loss. He was loved and honoured 
by a wide circle of friends. F. H. D. 

HORTON, Edward Vipond, was born in North Shields in 1844 and died 
at Bude, January 28, 1927. 

In 1868 he settled in Newport, Essex, for six happy years (1868-74). He 
also held pastorates at Stroud, Glos. (1874-75) ; Chatteris (1878-83) ; 
Streatham (1885-87) ; Shaldon (1899-1904) ; Falmouth (1905-09), and 
during the war at St. Columb (1918-23). 

Mr. Horton had travelled considerably, having been on a tour round the 
world. He was twice married and lost his only son during the Great War. 

The greater part of his retirement was spent at Bude, Cornwall, where he 
will be greatly missed. A man much beloved, it was a great joy to him to 
assist in the formation of a Congregational Church at Bude, of which he was 
Secretary. 

HUGHES, Thomas Arwel, was born on September 22, 1864, at Trelech,

He was prepared for the ministry at Carmarthen Presbyterian College, 
and his first pastorate was at Nazareth Congregational Chapel, Pontlottyn 
(1894-1901), where he also served as a member of the Gelligaer School 
Board and other public bodies. He then removed to Bethesda Congrega- 
tional Chapel, Briton Ferry, and completed twenty-five years' successful 
ministry there in February, 1927, during which time he freed his church 
from debt and erected a new church at Court Sart, Briton Ferry. He 
took a prominent part in the public life of the town, acting for many years 
as the Secretary of the Briton Ferry Free Church Council, United Singing 
Festival, Llansawel Cymreigyddion, local branches of the League of Nations 
Union, and British and Foreign Bible Society. He had also been a 
governor of the Neath Schools under the Glamorgan Education Committee, 
and was a past Chairman of the South Glamorgan Congregational Asso- 
ciation. 

A popular and powerful preacher, his services were in great demand 
throughout the Welsh denomination. 

He leaves a widow, the daughter of the late Police-Superintendent 
Thomas Phillips, Aberystwyth, and two sons (who are both on the staff 
of Messrs. Barclays Bank Ltd.). H. M. H. 



JACK, James Crichton, born at Newtyle, Forfarshire, March 8, 1842, 
was ordained at Victoria Street Presbyterian Church, Great Grimsby, by 
the Darlington Presbytery in 1875. 

He was in the ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland from 
1880-93 : in U.S.A. (1903-07). Keturning to England in 1907 he received 
a unanimous invitation to St. John's Independent Church (Eng.), Jersey, 
where he laboured with much appreciation until 1910, when he retired to 
Buxton, Derbyshire. 

He had outstanding gifts as a preacher, pastor and writer. While in 
Jersey he wrote a small book on the history of Congregationalism in the 
Island, with special reference to St. John's Church. 

He gave three sons to the ministry of the Presbyterian Church of 
Scotland. 

He died March 4, 1927, aged eighty-five. J. W. J. 



JAMES, Alfred, whose ministry covered sixty years, of which fifty were 
spent in the city of Leicester, was a man of distinctive personality and of 
quite exceptional pastoral gifts. He was born in London, January 26, 
1841, and was a member of Westminster Chapel in Samuel Martin's day. 
He was trained at Bristol College under Dr. E. J. Hartland. The first ten 
years of his work he passed in country pastorates ; at Hadleigh, Suffolk 
(1867-69); Fairford, Gloucestershire ; (1869-72); and Me vagissey, Cornwall 
(1872-77). He never forgot Mevagissey. All his life he loved best, after 
the thrum of London, the splash of the sea waves ; and a picture of the 
old Cornish fishing-harbour hung above his study mantel-shelf all through 
the busy Leicester years. 

He came to Leicester in 1877, to the Humberstone Road church ; and 
during his pastorate there of twenty-nine years (1877-1906) the present 
church was built. In September, 1899, he was appointed Nonconformist 
Chaplain to the Leicester Royal Infirmary, the appointment being made by 



138 MINISTERS DECEASED. 

the Governors of the Infirmary and the Leicester Free Church Council. 
He held this appointment till the date of his death, February 12, 1927 ; 
and he was working at the Infirmary up to the very evening of his last 
illness. It was work for which he had unusual qualifications of heart and 
soul ; and he won and kept the affection and confidence of the whole 
staff, and especially of his patients. Work of this kind touched the very 
depths of his nature, his sympathy, and his surprisingly deep human 
understanding. At the same time he was through all these years constantly 
preaching in the towns and villages of the county, and he continued to do 
this right up to the end. He was preaching at Billesdon only a fortnight 
before his death. 

He married in 1870, Elizabeth, the eldest daughter of the Rev. Thomas 
Page, of Tetbury, Gloucestershire. On the .occasion of their Golden 
Wedding, in August, 1920, Mr. and Mrs. James were entertained by the 
Governors of the Royal Infirmary and the Leicester Congregational Council, 
and were the recipients of many gifts of appreciation and esteem. 

Such was his work ; done year after year through sixty years of faithful 
toil. So he lived, and so he died ; setting little store on this world's things, 
but greatly setting store on the service of God and of his fellow- men ; and 
at the very end saying of himself and of his life only this : " Well, I have 
tried to show men that religion is a practical thing." It is not too much to 
say that as a pastor he had a strain of genius in him ; just that mystic 
touch on life which comes of living fellowship with Jesus Christ. 

He was eighty-six when he died. He leaves a widow, one daughter, and 
four sons. Perhaps nothing gave him more lasting joy than that three of 
his sons are Congregational ministers. A. T. S. J. 



JOHNSON, Frank, A.T.S., was born at Bilston, Staffs, on June 25, 1861, 
and died on September 13, 1927 at St. Albans. Educated at Wolver- 
hampton and London University, he became assistant master of the Model 
Schools of Borough Road Training College, where he remained for two 
years, after which he took his theological course at New College, where he 
was Pye Smith Scholar and Associate of the Theological Senatus. His first 
pastorate was at Stone (1893-99), where he was Secretary to the Staffs 
Congregational Union. He was appointed editor of The Sunday School 
Chronicle in 1899, an appointment he held until his death. From 1909-12 
he was also editor of The British Congregationalist. He became Publi- 
cations Secretary of the National Sunday School Union in 1911, and in 
1914 founded the Graded School Quarterlies. Since 1913 he had been 
Hon. Secretary of the British Lessons Council. During the war years of 
1916-18 he was pastor of the Hemel Hempstead Church. In addition 
to contributions to his own journals he was the author of " Faith and

" The Disciple's Prayer," and " The Way of Success." 



JOHNSON, Joseph, was born at Basingstoke on March 31, 1848. Edu- 
cated at a private school at Ringwood he started on a business career ; 
this however was soon abandoned, and in 1869 he entered Cheshunt College. 
His first ministry was at Howe Chapel, Bermondsey (1875-77), where he 
remained for two years, leaving in 1877 for Ashton-on-Mersey. There his 
life work lay and he did not relinquish his pastorate until 1920.

He was a man of wide interests, had a keen appreciation of scholarship 
and of what was good in Art and Literature. He wrote several books for 
children — of which " Dibs " was widely known — a few hymns, including 
" God speaks to us in word and song," and a critical study of George Mac- 
Donald. For many years he served as a Guardian. But his chief char- 
acteristic was his joyous and optimistic spirit, and his best memorial will be 
in the hearts of the people amongst whom he worked. 

He died on December 12, 192G. J. M. O. J. 



JOHNSTONE, Archibald, was born at Kendal in Westmoreland in 1857 
and died at Richmond, Surrey, in March, 1927. 

He was originally trained as an architect, but after serving his articles 
felt called to higher service, and entered Spring Hill College, Birmingham, 
his idea at the time being to take up Mission work in the South Seas. His 
plans were subsequently modified, however, and he took charge of Burton 
Street Church, Tewkesbury (1883-88) ; removing to Sion Chapel, Halifax 
(1888-90). In January, 1901, he commenced his ministry at Vineyard 
Congregational Church, Richmond, remaining there until compelled by 
failing health to resign in 1916. 

For thirty-three years he preached and practised a robust type of Chris- 
tianity, devoting his attention more to the practical than to the purely 
theological. He was for some years on the Directorate of the London 
Missionary Society ; took a keen interest in charitable organisations and 
was the first nonconformist to sit on the Richmond Charity Commission. 
He was also a member of the British Astronomical Association and for 
several years hon. secretary to the Richmond Athenaeum. 



JONES, Henry Llewellyn, was born March 12, 1842, at Llwynbwdyn, 
Llanuwchllyn, Merioneth. He was at first employed on farms, but had 
a strong inclination for literature and education, and was admitted to 
Borough Road College, London, intending to be a day-school teacher. 
Part of the college being destroyed by fire, he returned home, and went 
as a schoolmaster at Park, near Bala. Persuaded by the Rev. Rhys M. 
Thomas to enter the ministry, he was received into Bala Independent 
College in 1874. On May 20, 1878, he was ordained minister of the 
churches at Rhesycae and Rhydymwyn, Flintshire, thus becoming a 
successor to his late pastor, Rhys M. Thomas. In 1889 he married Miss 
M. Watkin and found in her a sympathetic comrade in his work. 

Mr. Jones was a man of sound judgment and a faithful friend. During 
his ministry a new chapel was erected at Rhesycae, to which a large 
cemetery was added, and the debt has been wiped off. He rendered 
valuable service to Denbighshire and Flintshire Union, and was a regular 
member of its committees. His strong personality and activity enabled 
him to maintain a fruitful ministry in the same pastorate for forty-eight 
years, and everybody respected and loved him. 

He died February 8, 1927. T. E. T.

family which had been settled in Cambridgeshire from the seventeenth

century. Under strong religious impression, as a young man, he resolved 
to devote himself to definite Christian service. After attending Trinity 
College for some time, he came to London to work in connection with the 
London City Mission. In 1869, however, under the advice and counsel of 
the Rev. James Rowland, of Henley, he accepted the pastorate of the 
Congregational Church at Pheasants Hill, Hambledon (1869-71). Mr. 
Le Pla removed to Beaconsfield (1871-74), where, during a successful 
ministry, a new and beautiful church was erected. He held pastorates 
afterwards at Robert Street, Grosvenor Square (1874-76); Llanelly 
(1876-81); Exeter (1881-90); Kingsland (1890-1902; and Theale 
(1904-1907) . Returning to Beaconsfield in 1908, he served his old church 
as temporary pastor, and through the difficult war-period, finally retiring 
in 1919. He passed away at Beaconsfield, in honoured age, on August 28, 
1927. 

MARTINDALE, Alfred, was born at Manchester in 1856. He was 
educated at Owens College, and after a short period in business proceeded 
to Rotherham College, where he was trained for the Congregational min- 
istry. His parents, however, had intended that he should enter the Estab- 
lished Church, in which faith he had been brought up. 

He was co-pastor at Richmond Hill, Bournemouth (1883-86), where he 
was ordained. He then went to Harrold (Beds) (1886-1901). In 1901 he 
returned to Bournemouth to take up the pastorate of the Westbourne 
Church,which he held for nine years (1901-10). He later held pastorates at 
Mevagissey, Cornwall (1911-18), and Yardley Hastings (Northants) (1918- 
26), for eight years at each place. 

He passed away on January 12, 1927, on the very eve of his retirement 
from the active ministry. L\ P. M. 

MOFFATT, Andrew Umphray, born August 26, 1881, was a native of the 
Shetland Isles, where he spent his early youth. For a time he took up 
architectural work, until the ministry called him and he became a student 
at Didsbury College, Manchester. 

He held pastorates at Falkirk; Annan (1905-07) ; Cecil Street, Carlisle 
(1908-12); Whitchurch (Salop) (1912-22); Salisbury Park, Wrexham 
(1923-27). 

* During the war he was in active service as H.C.F. in France, Belgium, 
Salonika, Mesopotamia, Palestine and Egypt, as well as being stationed for 
some time at Prees Heath camp and Salisbury Plain. Being demobilised 
in 1919, he returned to the church at Dodington, Whitchurch. 

Taken seriously ill on May 18 with pneumonia and heart trouble he died 
on May 28, 1927. 

MORGAN, Ithiel Wilfred, was born December 6, 1883, and educated 
in the Mercers' School, London. He entered the Westminster Bank, 
but after only a few months' service yielded to the call to the Christian 
ministry, and was entered at New College, Hampstead. Leaving college, 
he had charge of the Kentish Town Mission for a short time in connection 
with Dr. Horton's church. Appointed by the L.M.S. to India, he served 
with passionate devotion for eight years at Kaurapukur and Hastings 
Church, Calcutta (1909-17), The serious illness of his wife and little boy

compelled his return to England, and he was invited to the church at 
Hither Green (1918-25). His seven years' pastorate made a lasting 
impression by his self-sacrificing and idealistic life. At Rochester also 
(1925-27) he found devoted friends and workers through his Christlike 
self-forgetfulness and sincerity. 

He felt a special call to the outsider. People in prison, the down- 
and-out, men in the toils of moneylenders, gamblers, criminals, drunkards, 
unmarried mothers — no sacrifice was counted too great if he could save 
or serve these. 

He died August 14, 1927, aged forty- three. A. H. 



MORGAN, Richard John, was born at Hirwain, Glam, November 20, 
1866. After a brief business career he entered Cheshunt College. On 
leaving college he became assistant pastor at Headingley, Leeds (1901-04). 
He also held pastorates at Hope Church, Salford (1904-15), and Booking, 
Braintree (1915-27). A man of commanding presence and marked ability 
he soon established himself in the hearts of his people. He was elected 
Chairman of the Essex Congregational Union in 1925 and was Secretary of 
the Braintree District. He was also Chairman of the Braintree School 
Managers. 

A sunny nature, full of enthusiasm and optimism, his presence and 
counsel were always welcome in Church and local affairs. 

He died June 8, 1927, and leaves a widow who loyally shared his work. 

R. S. 



MORRIS, John, was born at Perthengam, Mostyn, Flintshire, July 21, 
1856. Brought up in a religious atmosphere, on leaving home he spent 
some time in Denbigh, where his religious convictions were deepened, and 
his interest in social problems was kindled.' He went to Liverpool whilst a 
young man and joined the Tabernacle, Welsh Church, where the late Dr. 
John Thomas ministered. His pastor soon induced him to exercise his 
gifts as a lay preacher and he rendered valuable service to the Welsh 
churches in Lancashire and elsewhere. 

In 1912 he was ordained in Lord Duncan Street Chapel, Salford, and was 
pastor of Queen's Road (1912-27) and later of Hollinwood Churches, Man- 
chester (1918-26). His ministry was very effective, and his gracious per- 
sonality endeared him to all. Although his prolonged illness prevented, 
during the last two years, the discharge of his ministerial duties, the church 
at Lord Duncan Street refused to the last to accept his resignation. 

He passed away on January 22, 1927. Much sympathy is felt for his 
only daughter and three sons. T. P. D. 

MUIR, William, was born at Kirkcaldy, in 1856. He was brought up 
at Burntisland, to which his family removed when he was a child. 

Physical disability prevented his becoming a doctor, the career he would 
have chosen. He was at one time a pupil teacher, and also spent some 
time as a clerk before circumstances led him to enter the ministry. 

He passed through the Scotch Baptists' Theological Hall, and studied 
at Glasgow University, and was then ordained and inducted to the charge 
of the Baptist Church at Dumfries. 



142 MINISTERS DECEASED. 

He became pastor of the little Congregational Church at Laurencekirk, 
Kincardineshire (1887-94). That his services there were much appre- 
ciated by his people was shown when, at the centenary celebration of the 
church, he received from them a handsome gold watch. 

In 1894 he went to Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, to the Congregational 
Church there (1894-1926), with its little mission station at Kinmuick, 
where a monthly service used to be held. There he laboured till his 
health gave way, receiving public recognition of his services several times, 
particularly at his semi-jubilee. He was a faithful pastor and a diligent 
student to the end. In January, 1926, he resigned his charge through 
ill-health, and later went to reside near his native town. There he passed 
peacefully away on January 9, 1927, after an illness of over two years. 
He was predeceased many years by his wife, and leaves an only daughter. 

Though keenly interested in all public affairs, he took no active part 
in them, except for his services to the Inverurie Public Library, of which 
he was convener of the Book Committee for twenty years. The com- 
mittee and friends made him a handsome presentation on his retiral. 

M. E. F. 

NACHIM, Michael, was a Russian Jew, born in 1836 in Odessa, where 
his grandfather had been chief Rabbi. He was named Reuben after him, 
taking the name of Michael at his baptism. 

Baptised into the Christian faith by Dr. Stern in 1856, after a period of 
training be hecame a missionary and was engaged for some years in work in 
connection with the London Jews' Society, but entered the service of the 
British Society for the Propagation of the Gospel among the Jews in 1869. 
Ordained to the Christian ministry in 1877, he never, however, occupied a 
pastorate, but laboured abundantly in pleading the cause of Christ among 
his Jewish brethren in England and abroad for sixty-seven years. Highly 
honoured and successful in his work, he met with an accident in London, 
was taken to hospital, where he died on December 21, 1926, in his ninety- 
first year. 

He had long been a prominent figure in missionary and Hebrew Chris- 
tian circles and is mourned by his widow and the Society he served so well. 

J. W. 

NEALE, Thomas, was born at Ratby, Leicestershire, in 1855. In that 
village his early Christian environment was among Primitive Methodists 
and also his first Christian endeavour. 

His Congregational ministry opened in 1885 at Anstey, with Groby and 
Humberstone, three villages near Leicester : and for seven years he served 
the group. In 1892 he went to Northampton, as first minister of Dod- 
dridge Branch Chapel. Four years later,as the result of his devoted labours, 
the new Doddridge Memorial Church was erected, where he stayed five 
years more (1892-1901). In 1901 he became the minister of Sanvy Gate 
Mission Church, Leicester (1901-26). After twenty-five years' service there 
unstintedly rendered, he retired December 31, 1926. A fortnight after the 
farewell gathering he passed away suddenly, February 4, 1927. 

At Leicester City Mental Hospital he was Free Church Chaplain. 

His modesty won him the affectionate esteem of all. 

He leaves his widow, one son, and two daughters, " sorrowful yet re- 
joicing." J. R. L.

NICHOLS, John Broadhurst, was born at Knutsford, Cheshire, May 26, 
1855, and trained at Didsbury College. He held pastorates at Noel 
Street, Nottingham (1883-80) ; Oxford Street, Leicester (1887-94) ; Haver- 
stock Hill, London (1894-1906) ; West Ealing (1906-24). 

He retired in 1924 after forty-one year's ministry, and died September 6, 
1927, aged seventy- two, after a long illness. 

Author of " The Practical Value of Christianity," in 1888. In 1898 he 
won the £100 prize offered by the Religious Tract Society for the best book 
on " Evangelical Belief." Later he wrote " The Advance of Romanism." 

For some time he was a member of the St. Pancras Borough Council, 
and for twelve years a school manager under the London School Board. 
He had also held office as President of Ealing and Hanwell Free Church 
Council and was a director of the L.M.S. M. J. N. 



ORGAN, Alfred Henry Albert, A.T.S., was born in Gloucester, 1873. 
He was educated at the Crypt Grammar School, Gloucester, and at the 
Collegiate School, Taunton. After leaving school he took up tutorial work 
at Tetbury and later at Bournemouth. While at Bournemouth he came 
under the influence of the Rev. J. Ossian Davies and decided to offer him- 
self for the ministry. He was admitted as a student into Memorial College, 
Brecon, in 1895 : that being the college where his own minister was trained. 
He was the only Englishman of his year, but he became a great favourite. 
As a Brecon student, he pursued his preliminary studies at the University 
College, Cardiff, where he interested himself in the work of the Student 
Christian Union, becoming its secretary. He also became the editor of the 
college magazine. Then followed a two years' course in Divinity at Brecon 
(1898-1900) at the completion of which he qualified for his A.T.S. 

His first pastorate was at Castlegate, Shrewsbury (1900-1906), where he 
was ordained, the Rev. J. Ossian Davies delivering the "charge to the 
minister" fromEzek. i. 10. In 1906 he went to Coedpenmaen, Pontypridd, 
where he laboured with success for nine years (1906-15), especially in- 
teresting himself in work among boys. He became secretary of the 
Pontypridd Battalion Boys' Brigade. When the war broke out he offered 
his services to the Y.M.C.A. and spent the years 1915-19 in their work at 
Le Havre, Rouen and Cologne. 

He might have distinguished himself as a thoughtful and polished preacher 
but he was drawn more and more into social work. A boy in spirit, he 
knew lads as very few men know them. He was never happier than when 
he was serving youth. At the completion of the war he continued to work 
among men and boys. He became the general secretary of the Y.M.C.A. at 
Northampton, a post which he filled with conspicuous ability until he was 
called " home." In addition to his ordinary tasks he founded and ran a 
successful Boys' Club and Institute in one of the slum areas of the town. 
He also continued to serve the churches as a preacher as far as his time 
allowed. Unselfish to the core, he was a loyal friend. Though a man of 
some ability he was modest to a degree, and in everything he was faithful 
to his Master. 

He passed to his reward on May 27, 1927, in Northampton Hospital,where 
after a brief illness he had been taken suffering from cancer. His body 
was interred in Northampton General Cemetery ; the funeral services being 
taken by his friend and fellow student of Brecon College, the Rev. J. E. 
Evans. J. E. E.

PARRY, Henry William, was born in Trefriw, North Wales, in 1852. 
When young his parents moved to Blaenau Festiniog and joined the Rhiw 
Independent Church, where he commenced preaching. Educated for the 
ministry at Bala College, in 1883 he was ordained at Chwarelgoch, Carnar- 
vonshire (1883-92), afterwards taking charge of Tynymaes Church, and nine 
years of successful work was done. Accepting a call to Aberllefein, Merion- 
ethshire (1892-1910), he laboured faithfully and successfully, and also 
founded the church at Esgairgeiliog. 

In 1910 he resigned the pastorate, and sailed with his family to the 
U.S.A., but returned to Wales in 1913, and settled down at Trevor Issa, 
Cefn, Ruabon. There he associated himself with the church at Rhosy- 
medre, rendering valuable service while the church was without a pastor. 

He passed peacefully away on Sunday, July 3, 1927, at the age of seventy 
four, leaving a widow, son, and an adopted niece x to mourn their loss. 

A true friend and faithful pastor, his preaching was characterised with 
individuality, originality and deep earnestness. J. M. T.

PENFORD, Edwin John, was born at Newbury, Berks, on November 4, 
1854. 

Trained for the Ministry at Hackney College, he won the Homes Prize for 
an essay on " Christ's Resurrection : Its Place in Christianity." 

In 1879 he was appointed to his first and only pastorate at Eltham 
Congregational Church (1879-1919). Shortly afterwards he married Miss 
Sarah M. Powell, a daughter of the Rev. Thomas Powell, one of the first 
missionaries to the Samoan Islands. 

In 1895 Mr. Penford was elected chairman of the Kent Congregational 
Association, and he delivered the annual address at Folkestone the follow- 
ing spring. For many years he was one of the directors of the London 
Missionary Society, and for a time was district secretary of the London 
Congregational Union. He was also on the governing body of his old 
college. He retired from Eltham Church in 1919 after forty years' faithful 
ministry there. 

After this he settled in Tunbridge Wells and associated himself with 
Mount Pleasant Church. There he served as Acting Pastor for a year 
and nine months, during the interregnum between the ministries of the 
Revs. E. A. Dowsett and I. Maldwyn Jones. He continued to preach 
right up to the end, and did much valuable work in the churches of Tun- 
bridge Wells and the surrounding district. He endeared himself to all 
by his simple, lovable goodness and unfailing kindness.

He died suddenly, during his sleep, on August 20, 1927, at the age of 
seventy-two. 

PETERS, John, was born at Pontypool, April 14, 1853. 

His first pastorate was at Siloh, Abersychan, Mon. (1894), where he 
remained for three years. Removing to Pontnewydd, Mon., he practically 
founded the church there (1897-1904). These seven years were very 
successful. A fine hall was built and land purchased adjoining on which 
to build the church. The services are still being held in the hall. He 
took an active interest in the Free Church Council and in the Sunday 
School Union, and formed a Union with Cwmbran and Pontnewydd, 
holding an annual demonstration. He became chairman both of the 
Free Church Council and the Sunday School Union. 

For considerations of health he removed to Kingsteignton, South 
Devon (1904-22), where his ministry was very fruitful. In 1913 he was 
Chairman of Newton Abbot Free Church Council. In 1918 Chairman of 
the South Devon Congregational Union. A serious illness led to his retire- 
ment in 1922. He returned to Pontnewydd, and died on December 14, 
1926, aged seventy- three. W. P. 

PITHER, John, was born December 29, 1854, at Henley-on-Thames, 
where his father was deacon of the Congregational Church for many years. 

During the ministry of the Rev. James Rowland, at an early age, the 
Divine Call to the Christian ministry came to him, and he began to prepare 
for his life-work, encouraged and helped by his pastor. Services were con- 
ducted in village churches and a course of private study entered upon. 
In due time he was received into New College, but owing to an attack of 
rheumatic fever which laid him aside for some months an extra year was 
added to the usual curriculum. 

He held pastorates at Chesham (1880-88) ; Winslow (1888-96) ; Mere 
(1896-1908) ; and Wiveliscombe (1908-16). In each sphere of ministry 
he gave of his best with a whole-hearted devotion. At Chesham a new 
church was built and opened free of debt. Work in the Sunday school 
always interested him, but with young men his influence for good was 
like an inspiration, and is still bearing fruit. 

While at Wiveliscombe, to his great grief, his sight began to fail and 
gradually increased until he became almost totally blind, and was com- 
pelled to retire from the regular ministry. 

Making his home in his native town, it was his ripe experience, wise 
counsel and willing help that made him so valuable an asset to his own 
church and to the Nonconformist churches of the district. His affliction of 
blindness did not deter him in his resolve to do his utmost for all. A 
faithful friend, a loyal servant and a radiant Christian, he was called to 
higher service. April 7, 1927, aged seventy-two. 

A man of intense spiritual force and beauty of character, Mr. Pither won 
the love and esteem of a wide circle of friends. An earnest and effective 
preacher, his greatest joy was to tell " the old, old story " with a winsome 
pathos that never failed. J. W.

Friends. He received his education at King Edward Vlth Grammar 
School, Sedbergh, and at Rotherham College. After a successful career 
at college, Mr. Pool settled at Patmos Chapel, Todmorden, in 1882, and 
after a short pastorate, accepted the charge of Union Church, Calcutta 
(1883-89), where he was married to Miss Hardman, the daughter of a 
Congregational Minister. After five years in India, Mr. Pool accepted 
an invitation to the English Church at Rheims, France (1889-99), and 
during his pastorate here did a great deal of literary work. From Rheims 
he became pastor of Hanover Chapel, Peckham (1901-07), where he did 
an excellent work for six years, particularly through the Popular Thursday 
Evening Services. Other pastorates he held were Rectory Place, Wool- 
wich (1909-11), New Church, Parsons Hill, Woolwich (1911-15), and 
Forest Hill (1917-23). In addition to his pastoral work, Mr. Pool travelled 
in America, and also made two valuable contributions to literature about 
India, by his books " Women's Influence in the East," and " Studies in 
Mohammedanism." He was well-read and highly intellectual, and a very 
acceptable lecturer. He was thoroughly conscientious, and a most 
painstaking and earnest worker in any cause he undertook. His travels 
gave him a very charitable outlook upon the various races of mankind 
and the various religions of the world, but he held passionately by the 
religion of Jesus Christ as the greatest of all religions and the only final 
hope of the world. He died on October 29, 1927.

November 4, 1837. He was educated at Woolf's Castle, Milford Pre- 
paratory School, Haverfordwest Baptist College, and Bristol College. 
He was ordained pastor of the mother church of Welsh Nonconformity 
at Llanvaches in 1871, a position he held for forty years. He was also 
in charge of Goldcliff Congregational Church. Although Mr. Price was 
a native of Undy, Pembrokeshire, he had resided in Undy parish over 
sixty years. He first came there as a student from college. A staunch 
Nonconformist and Liberal, he was one of the keenest supporters of Lord 
Treowen, the Lord-Lieutenant, when his lordship won the old South 
Monmouthshire seat for the first time in the history of Liberalism. 

Mr. Price was beloved and esteemed, and although he relinquished 
active preaching in 1907 he was still known as " Preacher Price." He 
died- suddenly at Woodville, Undy, at the age of ninety, on August 5, 
1927. 

Among those who attended the funeral were his eleven children and 
one of his two surviving brothers, who is eighty-eight. J. W. 



REES, John Gilbert, was born in 1872 at Laucharne, Carmarthenshire. 

The son of a farmer, he worked for a number of years at his father's 
occupation. 

At the age of twenty he entered Carmarthen College, later beginning 
his ministry in the joint pastorate of Wolfesdale and Crundale, in Pem- 
brokeshire (1897-1907). After ten years successful service there he 
accepted a call to St. Paul's Congregational Church, Swansea (1907-17), 
where he filled many prominent positions, including the Presidency of

the Free Church Council and the chaplaincy of the 6th (Territorial) 
Battalion of the Welsh Regiment. 

During the black war days he held the pastorate of Whitham, in Essex 
(1917-26). There, in addition to being chaplain to the 202nd Infantry 
Brigade, he held the important post of Food Controller of the town, 
and for a time acted as Chairman of the local Education Committee. 
The Whitham Brotherhood and the Coggeshall and District Eisteddfod 
owed their inception to Mr. Rees. 

In February, 1926, he accepted an invitation to Grange Park Church, 
Leyton, and laboured until a few days before his death on June 14, 1927.' 

Mr. Rees was a staunch Free Churchman and Congregationalist, and 
an ardent Welshman, who loved the land of his birth and his home. 

His kindly nature, sympathetic words and friendly smile won him many 
friends, and his passing hence is a great loss to the ministry he faithfully 
served. M. L. H. 

ROBERTS, David, was born at Brynffynnon, Corwen, on March 3, 
1844. Losing his mother when four years of age, he was brought up by 
an uncle and aunt at Tyn-y-Bont. Although elected a deacon when seven- 
teen years of age, he had always a strong desire to be a minister, and in 
1868 was received as a student into Bala Congregational College. After 
completing his studies at Bala, he entered Glasgow University. At the 
termination of his ministerial training, he was well known throughout 
the Principality as a powerful preacher. He accepted the unanimous 
invitation of Queen Street Congregational Church, Rhyl (1874-83), and 
was ordained minister on May 28th, 1874. He began his work with a 
high conception of the pastoral office, and in a short period the church 
members were doubled, and a new chapel was built, which stands to-day 
as a memorial of his ministry. 

In the early part of 1884 he entered upon a long and successful ministry 
extending over thirty years at Llanuwchllyn (1883-1913), and was highly 
respected. He cleared the debt that was on the buildings, built two new 
chapels, and enjoyed many long years free of debt. He was always a faithful 
pastor, with a word of cheer and sympathy for all his people, and highly 
esteemed by his denomination. 

In 1914 he relinquished his ministerial duties, was presented with a 
substantial cheque, and spent the rest of his life at Llandrillo, serving 
the churches generally as his health and strength permitted. He died 
February 28, 1927, in his eighty-third year, and leaves a widow, two sons 
and two daughters. 

ROBINSON, William, was born at Cosby, Leicestershire, on April 25, 
1848. 

At the age of twenty-one he was led to join the Nonconformists, and 
became a Lay Preacher. In 1875 he entered the London City Mission 
and was appointed to a district in Walworth. In 1882 the Rev. Morley 
Wright recommended him as Assistant for the work at the Mission Hall, 
Deptford, in connection with Lewisham High Road Church (1888-89),' 
and there he was ordained. 

He removed in 1890 to Sanvy Gate Mission Church, Leicester (1890-94), 
but, owing to his wife's health, he felt compelled to take a country 
pastorate, and removed to Wymondham (1894-96). He returned to

Sanvy Gate, however (1896-1901) ; and in 1901 he left for Welford 
(1901-15). After fourteen years' ministry there he went to Yardley 
Hastings (1915-18). Retiring in 1918, he undertook the oversight of 
the church at Creaton, where he passed away on November 5, 1926, 
aged seventy-eight. 
As a pastor and friend, he was greatly beloved. 

R. M. R. 

STEER, Thos. Richardson, born February 14, 1845, in Oxford Street, 
London, embraced Free Church principles in early manhood and became 
a prominent worker at Stockwell Congregational Church. In 1880 he 
entered the ministry, being called to Swanage Church, where he remained 
for twenty-eight years (1880-1908). Under his -leadership the church 
flourished, the present chapel and manse were built, and these signs of 
material well-being were but indicatians of a deepened spiritual life. 

He took a keen interest in the life of the growing town, and was much 
loved and respected. 

The strenuous years at Swanage were followed by a short but happy 
ministry at Ramsbury, Wiltshire (1909-11). In 1911 he retired and 
settled in Reading, where he died, July 10, 1927. 



STRANGER, John Henry, J.P., was born in America on December 12, 
1852, and the family came to England in his infancy. In early life he 
was engaged in the teaching profession, and for twenty-five years con- 
ducted, a private school in Bodmin, he being a member of the Town Council 
and a Justice of the Peace. 

In 1898 he disposed of his school and, following in his father's foot- 
steps, entered the Congregational ministry. 

His first charge was Wiveliscombe, Somerset — as lay pastor (1899- 
1904), pastor (1904-8). Removing later to Westerham, Kent (1908-14), 
and to Othery, Bridgwater (1914-24). He was chairman of the Somerset 
Congregational Union during his final year of ministry there. 

In September, 1924, he retired from active service, and spent the evening 
of his life in Plymouth, where his daughters reside, identifying himself 
with Sherwell Congregational Church. He passed to his rest quite 
suddenly on May 10, 1927, in the seventy-fifth year of his age, following 
on the death of his wife ten days previously. 

H. M. S. 

THOMAS, James, was born in Oswestry in 1856. His father was a 
preacher of some repute, and at a comparatively early age resolving to 
follow in his father's footsteps, he became a student at New College. His 
first charge was Red Lion St., Boston, Lines (1880-89). He removed to 
Castle Square Church, Wisbech, Cambs (1889-1923), where his life- 
work was accomplished, and after thirty-three years of devoted activity 
failing health compelled him to relinquish the pastorate and remove to 
a smaller church at Hemsby (1923-27) in the Yarmouth district. 

Mr. Thomas was not only a powerful preacher, but he entered into the 
civic life of Wisbech and was chairman of the Board of Guardians for 
many years, receiving a handsome present on his retirement. He was

also a member of the Isle of Ely Education Committee ; of the North 
Cambs Hospital Committee, of the Wisbech Working Men's Institute, 
of the Committee of the Wisbech Museum and Literary Society, and 
was a Governor of the Wisbech High School. In connection with all 
these he rendered good and useful service. 
He died July 31, 1927, aged 70. 



TREBILCO, James, was born in 1842 at St. Columb, Cornwall, and 
died in Bristol, May 24, 1927, at the age of eighty-five years. He retained 
to the end ail his mental faculties unimpaired, and his interest in the 
affairs of life remained unabated. 

His ministerial training he received at the Bristol Congregational College 
under the Rev. E. J. Hartland. He devoted his entire ministry of fifty- 
five years to the service of churches within the City of Bristol. 

His pastorates included Anvil Street (1871-79) ; Hanham Road, Kings- 
wood (1879-85) ; and Russell Town (1885-1914). He became familiarly 
known as Trebilco of Russell Town : in this sphere he exercised for thirty 
years a gracious and honoured ministry, and during this period received 
into the Church no fewer than 1,800 members. His last great service 
rendered to the City was as the Free Church Chaplain of Eastville Poor 
Law Institution, where for ten years he ministered with the grace and 
sympathy of a choice spirit. The esteem of the authorities, appreciation 
of the inmates and affection of the sick he regarded as a joy which fittingly 
crowned the labours of a long life. 

With many of the outstanding social, educational and philanthropic 
movements of his day, he had memorable associations. A member of 
the old Bristol School Board and subsequently of the Education Com- 
mittee, he had long connection with the management of the Colston Hall 
Sunday Evening Services ; and was founder and President of the Bristol 
Society of Cornishmen. 

Any cause tending to the common good found in him a wise and eloquent 
friend. The progress made in the higher things of the City's life during 
the past half century will have in many of its phases a grateful memory 
for James Trebilco. 

His Celtic nature was imaginative and emotional, and possessed the 
gift of fervent speech. Into his preaching as if a poet, he gathered much 
of the rich suggestiveness of nature, the glow of morning, charm of fields 
and hills, and all the enchantment of the seasons. There were in his 
appeals to the people tenderness and, too, a strength of passion. His 
prayers knew an intensity of fervour that fill the Vision of faith and love 
with the thrill of the presence of God. 

A winsome character, a good comrade and a noble friend. 

His beloved wife, who predeceased him, was a member of the Bristol 
Board of Guardians, and had participated with many graces and gifts 
for service in all the activities of his Church life.

WATSON, Ralph Edward Shanks, B.A., was born at Jarrow-on-Tyne 
on May 9, 1890. Having strong leanings from his youth towards the 
Christian ministry, he left England on September 21, 1912, and became 



150 MINISTERS DECEASED. 

a probationer for the ministry of the Methodist Church of Canada, receiving 
his theological training at Wesley College, Winnipeg. He was ordained 
at Saskatoon in June, 1917, afterwards taking a pastorate at Assiniboia, 
Sask. 

In January, 1919, he returned to England and accepted a call to the 
Congregational Church, Jarrow (1919-22). Whilst there he had a break- 
down in health and went to Switzerland for some months. On regaining 
his health he returned to his church at Jarrow. 

In October, 1923, he accepted an invitation from the Congregational 
Church of Ottery St. Mary, Devon (1923-26). After three years he re- 
removed to the Old Meeting Church, Westbury, Wilts (1926-27), where 
he ministered successfully until his death from influenza on March 26, 
1927, aged thirty-six years. 

The ministry loses by his early death a man of great promise. He 
possessed brilliant literary ability, a genius for friendship, and great power 
as a preacher. T. C. 

WILKINSON, Edmund Scott, B.D., was born in London on November 3, 
1878, and died at Heme Hill, London, on May 2, 1927. 

He entered New College in 1900, and gained the B.D. Degree of the 
London University in 1905. For the year 1905 he was also the H.F. 
Burder Scholar, Selwyn Essayist, Harris Scholar, and Jubilee Medallist. 

He settled at Rainham, Kent (1906-12), and did work of the enduring 
kind. Then he removed to Swanley (1912-24), in the same county, 
where he laboured for twelve years with zeal and success. 

In 1924 he returned to his native city, and took charge of the church at 
Loughborough Park (1924-7). There he met and overcame great diffi- 
culties, and endeared himself, not only to the members of the church 
over which he presided, but to all the ministers and churches of the South 
West Metropolitan District. 

Mr. Wilkinson was a man of scholarly gifts and tastes, and of quiet 
Christlike devotion, while to know him was to love him. He leaves a 
widow and two daughters to mourn their loss. Although taken away 
suddenly and at an early age, his memory and work will endure, for he 
was " A good minister of Jesus Christ."

WILLIAMS, James David, born July 12, 1862, died May 12, 1927, was 
a native of Esgairdawe, Cardigan. His parents were farmers on a large 
scale, and pillars in the church of that locality. He was educated in the 
local elementary school, and at the Swansea Grammar School. He com- 
menced preaching while in his early teens, and was eventually successful 
in passing into the Bala Independnet College under Principal Michel 
Jones. He received a call to the Welsh Congregational Church in Flint, 
and was ordained there in February, 1889. For the last twelve years of 
his ministry he took over the pastorate of the English Church in Flint 
((W) 1889-1925); ((E) 1913-1925). 

He was Honorary Secretary for the Home Mission Society for Denbigh- 
shire and Flintshire for sixteen years, and was chairman of the Associations 
of the same counties ; and also a member of the Hymnal Committee for 
a long period. A very acceptable preacher and most faithful pastor.

WILLIAMS, John, was born at Rhiwfawr, Cwmllynfell, Glamorgan- 
shire, in 1849. In his boyhood he worked at Brynmorgan Farm, but 
aspired to no loftier position than the Christian ministry. After a short 
preparatory training in Cardiff he entered Bala College in 1872, where 
he spent three years. 

In 1875 he accepted the pastorate of Bethel Church, Trehafod, and was 
ordained there September 5 in the same year. He married Miss A. F. 
Davies, who proved a devoted Christian helpmeet till she entered into 
rest on September 20, 1915. After a ministry of twenty-five years the 
church and officers, in appreciation of his faithful service amongst them, 
presented him and his wife with valuable gifts. 

During the early development of the Rhondda he was one of the 
staunchest pioneers of Congregationalism and many churches were estab- 
lished in the district which flourish to-day. He was an indefatigable 
worker in the cause of temperance, a member of the Rhondda and Ponty- 
pridd Temperance Defence League, and for many years Chairman of its 
Executive Committee. 

He served his denomination well and ungrudgingly. He was Secretary 
of the East Glamorgan Association, the local branch of the British and 
Foreign Bible Society, the Welsh Congregational Union, and a member 
of its Council for a number of years. In 1925 he was elected Chairman 
of the Welsh Union, an office he filled with modest dignity and beautiful 
simplicity. On the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination he resigned 
the pastorate when special jubilee services, presided over by Lord Ponty- 
pridd, were held. He passed peacefully away on August 31, 1927. 

He was an able preacher, a wise counsellor, a sincere and constant 
friend, and was affectionately styled " The Bishop of the Rhondda." 
J. W. 

WILLIAMS, John, was born at Aberavon, Glamorganshire, in 1849. 
The son of the late Rev. R. B. Williams of Marshfield, near Cardiff, he com- 
menced preaching at Aberavon, but on the removal of his family to Cardiff 
he identified himself with Ebenezer Congregational Church, and was 
commended by that church as a suitable candidate for the Carmarthen 
Presbyterian College, which he entered in 1873. Before the completion 
of his course, he was ordained minister of the churches at Bryn Sion and 
Carvan, Pembrokeshire, where he laboured from 1876 to 1898, and became 
known throughout the Principality as " Williams, Carvan." 

At the request of the Pembrokeshire Congregational Association he 
undertook the dual pastorate of Sardis and Saundersfoot English Churches 
in 1898, where he remained until 1920, thus completing a fruitful ministry 
of forty-four years exactly divided between the English and Welsh Churches. 

He was greatly beloved by his brethren and highly honoured by folk 
of all denominations. He was Secretary of the Pembrokeshire Associa- 
tion for many years, and an ex-President of the South Wales Congrega- 
tional Union. He took a keen interest in temperance, educational and 
Free Church work, and after his retirement acted as one of the three 
Free Church chaplains for the Cardiff Royal Infirmary and kindred 
institutions. He passed away at the home of his son-in-law — the Rev. 
J. Penry Thomas, Cardiff— on January 12, 1927, aged seventy-seven. 
He was an earnest preacher, a devoted pastor, a loyal friend and a saintly 
character. T. J. W.

WILLIAMS, Thomas, was born at Llanelly, May 4, 1851. As a boy 
he attended the British School there, until he began work at the early 
age of twelve, and soon became a member of Capel Als Church. 

When twenty-four he began to preach in the same church, and in 
March, 1876, entered Bala Independent College. 

In December, 1880, he was ordained pastor of Capel Helyg and Sardis 
Churches, Carnarvonshire (1880-1926). He was an able preacher, and 
much loved by all who knew him. He filled many important positions 
in the denomination with marked distinction. 

He retired December, 1926, after a faithful service of forty-six years, 
having previously been presented with a handsome testimonial. He 
died on March 8, 1927, aged seventy-five, leaving a widow and three sons.
