Brinkworth: Circuit Notice - Brinkworth 1837

From the Primitive Methodist Magazine, 1838


Brinkworth circuit, Dec. 18, 1837.

During the last quarter we have witnessed several conversions, and a few professed to receive the blessing of a clean heart.

Monday, December 11, 1837, we held our Quarter-day; and it was a high day.  We commenced business a little after eight o’clock in the morning, and completed it by a quarter after three.

Business being over, a chairman was appointed, and we had about an hour’s conversation on sanctifi cation.  We then took tea; after which we returned, and began to sing.  The power of the Lord was mighty among us; and in particular, while singing those lines:—

Shower down salvation from the skies,
Let heaven begin below

We entered into a covenant to love one another, to love God more, to attend to our work better, and to try to be more useful.  We then joined in prayer; after which we proceeded to Wootton Bassett; and on arriving at the Butts, we commenced singing, and sung through the town to the chapel.  And after two short sermons by Bros. Wilkins and Gilbert, I and Bro. Excell administered the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper to near fifty preachers and members.

Before we could go all round, the power of God began to flow; and, O, what a passing by of the Son of God!  Seven believers were brought down under the power of God, and most present received a fresh baptism, and one man was converted to God.

About a quarter before ten, we closed this interesting Quarter-day, which is said to have been the shortest and best ever held in brinkworth circuit.

N. B.  We have lowered the circuit debt four pounds, twelve shillings, and five-pence.

J. Preston.
