The little village of Clough, County Antrim, and its neighbourhood, has been doubly blessed by the Lord in the present gracious Revival. Very many have been converted, and hardly an inhabitant of the district remains who is not much impressed. The Lord has also greatly manifested his power among us by the striking down of hundreds. Fervent prayer is ever ascending, like the smoke of the daily sacrifice to heaven, and the Word is studied; and instead of the drunken song, the sweet sound of mingled voices singing "psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs" greets the believer's ear. Well-attended and divinely-favoured prayer-meetings are held every evening; and the movement, instead of passing over as a temporary excitement, is now developed into the pure and vital religion of Jesus.
From ‘The Revival Newspaper,’ Volume i, Sept 24th, 1859.The gracious revival has extended from the parish of Connor to that of Ahoghill, then to Portglenone, and round by Tully, Largey, Grange, Straid, Slatt, Galgorm Park, Killalers, Cloughwater, Clough and Rasharkin. Nor is it yet showing any symptoms of decline – on the contrary, it is moving on with amazing Power. Every day, almost every hour is bringing tidings of conviction. The interest is more and more awakening and extending. From a statement by Rev Frederick Buick on 18th May 1859.
