Hylton PM Chapel, Durham
Report of Opening in the Primitive Methodist Magazine 1838
Hylton Chapel, Sunderland circuit. On Sunday, Nov. 26, 1837, this neat and commodious chapel was opened for Divine worship. H. Hebbron preached in the morning and evening; H. Hesman in the afternoon, and H. Hebbron again on the Monday evening.
This chapel is ten yards square, and is situated in the midst of a large and increasing population.
Our preachers have preached in Hylton; but for want of a suitable place to preach in, they made but little progress. But the Lord has wonderfully opened our way. The subscriptions and donations amount to near one hundred pounds.
We wish to tender our thanks to those kind friends who have so generously come to our aid in time of need ; and we pray that they may receive in this world a hundred-fold, and in the world to come life everlasting.
Nearly all the sittings were let on the first Monday evening after the opening; and we hope the Head of the church will pour out his Holy Spirit richly on the congregation, that sinners may be converted, and the Lord’s name glorified.
