Mamre C.M. Chapel, Trecwn. RE-OPENING SERVICES. The above edifice has been under a course of re-construction. Little more than twelve months ago the fraternity had to forsake the old home for a temporary encampment, and entrust the same in the hands of the contrac- tors, Messrs D Thomas and Son, Letterston, who have in the meanwhile effected a con- siderable change within and without. The structure, which is to a plan drawn by Mr H W Evans, Solva, is of the latest design, with a single entrance into the vestibule. Two entrances with swing doors from the latter » into the chapel, the pulpit at the extreme end, behind which is a recess with a magnificent arch decorated in plaster. It is furnished throughout with varnished pitch pine. The pulpit and gallery fronts are constructed with > matched pannellings lined with bright má. hogany. The Boor is of block on a founda- tion of four inches of concrete. The vestibule floor is of encaustic tiles of a very exquisite pattern. The windows are of Cathedral glass with a tinge of blue fixed with the rough side to the light. The ventilation is effected by air valves from under the cills and Boyl's patent ventilators on the roof. The outside is com- pletely cemented, and the front decorated with massive pillars, arches, cills and mould- ings in cement. The yard walls are cemented both sides and finished with semi-circular coping. A fine concrete walk with raised kerbs extends from the gate to the entrance. On Sunday next the family will re-assemble to take up their future abode. The Sunday Scholars will meet at 10 a.m., whi-le at 2 o'clock the Rev. David Jones (pastor) will have the privilege of delivering the first sèr- mon in the building. The rev. gentleman will also preach in the evening. On the following Tuesday and Wednesday, the 4th and 5th of May, the re-opening servi- ces are to be held, when the Revs. W Prydderch, Swansea M P Morgans, Blaen- anerch; and D Phillips, Carmarthen, who are amongst the best preachers, will officiate. The Rev. W Evans, M.A., Pembroke Dock, unfortunately, is unable to attend. The valley, which at this time of the year is at the climax of its natural beauty, is a fine resort to spend a day, and, given fine weather, a crowd is anticipated. A stage in the open air is being built, which may be resorted to in case the capacity of the building be found inadequate.
