Edward Street Primitive Methodist Chapel, Langley Green

By Jill Barber

We do not know the name she had as a girl, but Mrs P Taylor was involved in the society at Edward Street before the new Chapel was built in 1896. 

In 1956, on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of the church, she was presented with a special illuminated address by the 'Trustees, Leaders, Officers and Members of this Church, Sunday School and the Women's Own'.

It was given 'as a token of their esteem and in sincere appreciation of over sixty years loyal service to every department of the church. By her steadfast devotion and personal sacrifice she has set a worthy example for all to follow.'

Some words from her favourite Psalm (23) and Hymn were included, which 'typify her faith in God's gracious mercy and providence.'

'The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.'

'I need thee every hour
Most Gracious Lord
No tender voice like thine
Can peace afford.'

The names of the Circuit Minister, W B Barton, and the following members were given:

Alfred Jones, George W Laws, Agnes A Taylor, Charles A Davis, Samuel Dyas, Ernest Biggers, Samuel Evans, Annie Dyas, Annie Dadswell, Leonard Boardman, Albert South, Horace Parsons, Lance J Cooper, Beryl V Taylor, Annie Hall, Florence Willetts, Reginald T Payne.
