THE BARRY DOCK DRAPERS' HOLIDAY OUTING. -The staff in the employ of Messrs Parry Bros, the Barry Dock Drapers, Holton-road, with their friends, in all to the number of about seventy-five, spent a most enjoyable outing on Wednesday afternoon last at Llant^rit-Major, the journey to-and-fro being very pleasantly covered in four well appointed conveyances sup- plied by Messrs John Jones and Co., of Holton- road. The weather on the occasion was delight- ful, and Llantwit Major being reached about four o'clock, the company after a brief interval sat down to a substantial meat tea at the Cross Keys Inn, supplied in an efficient manner by Mrs Jones, the hostess, who, with her staff, did everything in her potver to render the entertainment of the company thoroughly enjoy- able. The visitors afterwards inspected the different places of interest in the ancient town and neighbourhood, including the historic ruins connected with the parish church. The beach was also a centre of attraction, some time being spent in a stroll along the sands, a leisure view of the ad- jacent heights, and indulging in games upon the green. Returning to the Cross Keys about eight o'clock, refreshments were again partaken of, and on the motion of Mr E. Jones, seconded by Mr Jones-Daviea, and supported by Mr J. R. Llewellyn (Barry Dock yewx), a vote of thanks was accorded Messrs Parry Bros., reference being made to the good feeling between employers and employed which gatherings such as this engendered.

Eyans, was also heartily thanked for his valu- able efforts to make the gathering a success. Shortly before nine the return drive was entered upon, and home was reached about eleven o'clock, all feeling delighted with the most enjoyable out- ing which had been spent. OPENING OF A NEW CurECH.—Some three mouths ago Alderman J. C. Meggitt and Captain F. Murrell. representing the English Congrega- tional Church at Barry, purchased from the Welsh Independents the iron structure in Crossways-street, which had been used by them pending the erection of their permanent building in Holton-road. When the iron church was formally handed over towards the end of last month, no time was lost by the joint committee in renovating and furnishing it afresh, and on Sunday last it was opened as an English Congregational Church. When the service commenced on Sunday morning, there was a good congregation present, and the place looked cosy and comfortable: The pulpit, communion table, and organ were decorated with beautiful flowers. The choir, under the leadership of Mr Sandey, led the congregation, in the musical part of the service with much vigour and precision. The preacher was the Rev D. Henry Rees, of Barry, who. taking as his text first Cor. iii., 16, said that man was beyond question a religious being, and in the religious history of the race the temple had ever occupied a prominent place. Limiting himself to Theism, and Theism as found in the Bible. Mr Rees said a temple, in its simplest form, involved two ideas — a place where God manifested Himself to man, and man dedicated himself to God. He urged his congregation to dedicate the human temple to God. There were various powers in man—thought, emotion, and action-these must be all consecrated. There was a religion of the head, of the heart, and of the hand. If man would become a true temple of God, these three must be beautifully blended into one, until, like the primary colours of the rainbow, they issued in the pure white light of Christian life.-In the afternoon the claims of the Sunday School upon the sympathy of pareats were set forth, and the announcement was made that a school would be opened there next Sunday afternoon.—In the evening the church was well filled. The musical part of the service was very bright and attractive. and an impressive sermon was again preached by the Rev D. Henry Rees.-On Monday a public tea and public meeting were held. The weather turned out very unfavourable still there was a large attendance at the tea. Alderman Meggitt presided over the public meeting, and brief stirring addresses were delivered by the Revs D. H. Rees and Graham Payu (Wesleyan), Capt. F. Murrell, Messrs J. O. Davies, H. R. Paul, J. Hayes, S. A. Williams, J, Gale, and others. The new church has had an excellent start, and its future is full of promise, EAST BARRY. BARRY CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH (ENGLISH). -On Sunday next, the Rev D. Henry Rees, minister, will officiate.

THE REV J. PULESTON JONES, M.A., the eminent blind preacher, who is announced to preach at the anniversary services of the Presby- terian Church, Barry, on Sunday next, is a native of Bala.

His educational training commenced at the Theological College, Bala, whence he proceeded to Oxford, where, at the end of three years, he graduated with first-class honours in theology. He is a nephew of Sir John Puleston, late M.P. for Devonport. MINISTERIAL CALL.—The members of the English Baptist church worshipping at Bethel Chapel, Barry, have given a unanimous call to become their first pastor to Mr J. H. Horn, of the Baptist College, Cardiff, and we are informed that gentleman has accepted the same, and will enter upon his ministerial duties early in July. Mr Horn, we understand. is a student held in high esteem by his principal, the presidept of the college. and by his fellow-students therefore, there is reason to anticipate that his coming to Barry will. under Divine guidance and blessing, be calculated to build up the church thereat, as well as tend to promote the best interests of Christ's Kingdom in the district. It may be added that this is not the fir3tcall given to Mr Horn, having received several invitations from responsible churches to become their minister. We wish pastor and flock every blessing at Bethel Church. CANTATA PERFORMANCE.—A grand sacred canta;a performance, entitled" David, the Shepherd Boy" (by G. F.
