COWBRIDGE CHURCH. THE PARISH CHURCH OF COWBRIDGE JL affording in its present state accommodation inade- quate to the wants of the Parishioners, especially the poorer portion of them, and likewise standing greatly in need of general improvement, the Inhabitants, at the recommendation of the Venerable the ARCHDEACON of LLANDAFF, are attemptiug such a restoration of the fabric and re-arrangement of the sittings as may give the Parish- toners, of every degree, the opportunity of assembling in the House of God. In furtherance of this endeavour the Kate-payers have agreed in Vestry to a Rate of Two Shillings in the Pound, which is expected to produce about £25ù. Although this sum, considering the circum- ,tances of many of the Parishioners, is so liberal as to testify their strong attachment to the venerable fabric, and their anxiety to promote its usefulness, it is yet quite insufficient to defray even the necessary cost of re-pewing and re-paving the Church. r The Committee appointed to carry out the contem- plated improvements, therefore, feel that their only hope of success rests with the Societies connected with the restoration of Churches, and the liberality of general Subscriptions. They make, then, an earnest appeal to all who are in any way interested in. or connected with, the Parish of Cowbridgeâwhether by Property, by Patronage, or by associations of kindly feeling towards the seat of their early Education-to assist the Parishioners in their en- deavour to build up again the breaches in this House of God. The Committee fervently trust thus to be enabled to re.pew the Church substantially and uniformly, aud to remove the many deformities which have been permitted to obscure its original architectural beauties. Subscriptions will be thankfully received by the Min- ister and Churchwardens, on behalf of the Committee; a List will also be opened for the entry of Subscribers' Names, at the National Provincial Banks at Cowbridge, Cardiff, and Bridgend. ° Cowbridge, Sept. 13th, 1848.
