FORTHCOMING VISIT OF THE REV. J. OSSIAN DAVIES. The Barry Congregational Church are to be congratulated upon having secured the Rev. J. Ossian Davies, of Bournemouth, to deliver a lecure entitled Dr. Moffat the Missionary," on Friday evening next, November 5th, at the Congregational Chapel, Windsor-road, Barry, when the chair will be taken by Major Jones, Penarth. The Rev. Ossian Davies was born at Cardigan in 1853, and after spending some years in a printing office, became sub-editor of a Welsh paper, published at Merthyr. In 1873 he entered Brecon College, where he spent a very successful career. After refusing a press- ing offer to succeed the late Dr. Rees, Gwilym Hiraethog," at Liverpool, he in 1877, when 24 years of age, accepted the pastorate of a Welsh church at Llanelly. After a most success- ful four years' ministry, he accepted an invitation to the Countess of ILU.^i/ngdon's English Church, Swansea, where he successfully ministered to an ever-inc -easing number for three years. In 1884 he accepted, after great hesitation, a pressing call from the New Court Church, Tollingdon Park, London, and during his three years' ministry raised the membership "rom 390 to nearly 1,000. Before he left for Bournemouth, an arrangement was made by which the church at Finsbury Park became united with the church at New Court, so that for the first time in the history of Congrega- tionalism there were two large churches presided over by two brothers and managed by one set of deacons. His ministry at Bournemouth keeps up his record of unbroken success, which is all the more wonderful as Mr. Davies, unlike most Welsh preachers, seldom preaches extempore. He is married to a Cymraes lan loew" ftrom Llan- gadock.
