Congleton - Primitive Methodists (1822)

The work of God prospered greatly at Congleton, and the society became numerous and powerful The zealous and well-regulated efforts of tract distributors were rendered of signal benefit to many persons and tended to enlarge the congregation and augment the society. A love-feast of extraordinary power was conducted there by Mr Hugh Bourne, in September 1822. Prayer was offered with penitents for several hours, and a considerable number found peace with God through faith in Christ.
