Wesleyan Tea Meeting.—

Wesleyan Tea Meeting.—

On Monday the 1st ult., a Tea Meeting was held in the Wesleyan School Room, Manners-street. The object of the Tea Meeting was to aid the funds for building the New Chapel. The Meeting was numerously attended. After tea the Rev. James Watkin, was called to the Chair. Interesting and animated addresses were delivered by the Chairman and the Ministers present. During the evening several pieces of sacred music were sung with great taste, spirit, and effect by the choir. The collection, and sums promised in aid of the Chapel fund, amounted to the handsome sum of £26.

The Wesleyan Congregation have been now a full page 174 twelvemonth without a Chapel, and during that period they have had only the limited accommodation of a School-room. This must have had an unfavourable influence upon the general interests of the congregation. But the New Chapel is now covered in, and in a short time will be ready for being opened. It will be at once a commodious, substantial, and elegant building. When once opened, may the eyes of the Lord rest upon it, and upon every synagogue in the Land!
