BERACHAH CHAPEL. As briefly recorded in our last issue the formal induction of the Rev George Thomas, late of Porth, as pastor of this Calvinistic Methodist place of worship, took place on the the Tuesday evening in that week, Mr T James (Caerlem) presiding over a large and representative gathering. Dr Williams, J.P., of Drim, opened the pro- ceedings with a few remarks appropriate to the occasion, reviewing the history of the cause during the past 35 years, and contrast- ing the edifice in which they were assem- bled with that which had preceded it as their home. The Rev Mr Lewis, of Whitland, welcomed the new minister on behalf of the Monthly Meetings, and addresses of a simila character were delivered by the Revs George Morgans, Dinas Lewis, Tyllwyd Herbert Davies, B.A., Pentour Protheroe, Whiston and Jones, Carmarthen, the last named having been one of Mr Thomas' old school-masters. On behalf of the local churches a cordial welcome was extended by the Revs J S Davies (Goedwig), J Cynon Jones (Bethesda), and S A Evans (Congregational) the last of whom expressed regret that his acceptance of a call to Wem, in Shropshire would prevent him from working for any lengthy period in conjunction with Mr Thomas. Many references appreciative of the past services of the Rev J M Symmonds were made during the course ef the evening, Mr Arthur Davies remarking that he had been brought I up in Goodwick under that gentleman's hands I and that others who had received the same tuition were now to be found in every con- tinent on the globe. As a member of the profession to which Mr Thomas had formerly belonged, Mr W Evans (Pentour, Fishguard) also spoke appropriate- ly* The new pastor, in replying to the various addresses of welcome, said he came amongst them as a stranger, but had been given to understand that the invitation extended to him had been unanimous in character. He commented upon the scattered character of the congregation to which he was called upon to minister, some residing at Strumble Head and some at Manorowen, but mentioned that he had visited all, and had found that all appeared to hold the highest opinion of the others, which was a very gratifying indi- cation of the spirit of unity which pervaded that Church. Letters of apology for non-attendance in consequence of illness were read from the Revs. J G James, Rhosycaerau; J S Dauies, Goodwick and Wm. Evans, M.A., of Pembroke Dock. The Children's Guild referred to in previous issues of this paper was successfully inaugur- ated on Thursday evening, on which day weekly meetings will henceforth be held.
