I SPECIAL SERVICES AT GLASCOED CHURCH. Glascoed is a hamlet in the parish of Tfk, for which and the surrounding district there had been no church accommodation until about 30 years ago, when through the instrumentality of the late Rev. W. Evans, Vicar of Usk, the late W. A. Williams, Esq., of Llangibby Castle, and the late Mr John Morgan, of the Hiil (on whose property it was built), the present neat and suitable edifice was erected. The building is of good stone, and the work was well done. The church consists of a nave only, with a little turret and a bell. It is surrounded by a good- sized piece of ground, used as a place of burial. There was difficulty, for some years, in getting supplies of clergymen, but now regular services are held here, the Rev. S. C. Baker, Vicar of Usk, having succeeded in obtaining a grant 11 from the Church Pastoral Aid Society. These services are held alternately with those at Monkswood by the present curate-in-charge the Rev. II. L. M. Walters, M.A., Christ Church! Oxford, a most active and industrious labourer in our Lord's Vineyard. To aid the musical part of the service, Mr Walters recently purchased, of Mr W. H. Haskins, a neat and suitable har- monium and special services were held on Thursday, the lith inst., wheu collections were made towards defraying the cost of the instru- ment. Two excellent and appropriate sermons were preached by Mr Walters; his afternoou text was from the 122nd Psalm. 1st verse, "I was glad when tuey said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord and the evening text was from the 47th Psalm, 13th verse, "Thy way, 0 God, is in the Sanctuary. Who is so great a God as our God ?" In each discourse he warmly pleaded for the money needed to pay for the harmonium and other requirements. Mrs. A. A. Williams, of Maesderwen, most kindly presided at the har- uioiiiuuj^ and Mr. Williamc, with Mies Evans, of Chepstow, and two young persons whom Mrs. Williams brought with her, assisted the choir, as also did Mr. William H. Jenkins, of Trostra, and Mr Abraham Jenkins and his daughter. All passed off admirably well. Tea was provided between the services, and the day being fine, the attendance was as good as might be expected during the harvest season. We sincerely hope the pecuniary results were satisfactory. We may just add that Mr. Walters hopes soon to make an effort towards the resto- ration of Monkswood parish church, as it much requires it. In this and all other similar work we heartily wish him "good luck in the name of the Lord. Correspondent.
