BWLCHGWYN- SUNDAY SCHOOL RE-UNION.—On Monday last a very successful meeting was held in connection with the Sunday school of the school church at the above place. It will be remembered by many of our readers that a school was built about eight years ago, in the above out- lying populous district of the parish of Brymbo, chiefly through the exertions of that estimable lady Mrs Kyrki, of Nantyffrith, a service was held here on Sundays by one of the Brymbo clergy for a length of time, but about four years ago, the St. Asaph Church Extension Society voted an annual grant towards the support cf a resident clergyman. The Rev. George Williams was accordingly licensed as curate-in-charge, and since his removal to Gwersyllt at Christmas last, the Rev J. W. Jones, M.A., the present curate, has worked with praise- worthy zeal and earnes'ness in the district and his efforts to bring together a congregation are being abandantly rewarded. On Tuesday in spite of the inclemency of the weather a crowded meeting filled the room. Ad- dresses were delivered by the chairman (the vicar of Brymbo). and the Revs. Jehn Williams, vicar of Minera, David Edwards, Vicar of Berse, Griffith Jones, earate of Wrexham, and J. W. Jones, curate. Prizes, consisting of prayer books, hymn books, &c., were distributed by the vicar of Brymbo to each of the scholars who had attended regularly during the present year. These books (which must have cost some pounds) were, as we learnt, given by Mr Jones, the curate. The programme was interspersed with hymns which were most creditably sung by the scholars, under the leadership of Mr John Morris, organist. We understand that plans have been prepared by Mr Fry, architect, Liverpool, for the eon- version of the present school into a church, after the completion of which the district will be formed by the ecclesiastical commissioners into a parish.
