Opening Of Thorndon Chapel.—

Opening Of Thorndon Chapel.

The Chapel on Thorndon Flat formerly occupied by the Congregationalists, has been purchased and repaired by the Wesleyans at an expense of about £70. It was opened on Sabbath the 8th nit. It is to be used, both as a Chapel and a School-room. Mr. Tomlin will occupy it as formerly with his week-day and Sabbath Classes. We should have regretted much if this building had been devoted to any other purpose than that for which it was originally erected, religion and education. God says “In all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.” We regard it as a token for good to any locality when public worship is set up and regularly observed in it—when God's Word is publicly read and preached, his praises celebrated, and prayers and supplications presented before his throne—when all classes can enjoy the means of Grace, and when the elements of a Scriptural and general education can be obtained by the young. “They shall prosper that love Zion”
