BRECONSHIRE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION. Annual Meetings at Brecon. The annual meeting and preaching services in connection with the Brecon- shire Association of Baptist Churches were held in the Kensington and Water- gate Chapels. Brecon, on June 23rd and 24th, and were well attended. The proceedings were opened with a conference on the Monday afternoon. I The President (Mr F. J. Hurley, Crickhowell), in his address, said he was probably the only man who had held ..on. r„„ ii, J-C: 'H i through any merits of his own, but through the cessation of their work owing to the war. In that war one of their ministers, the Rev. E. Davies, of Glas- bury, at the early age of 37, fell, in France whilst removing wounded from the firing line. Many of the churches had lost young men who had obeyed the call of their country in its dire hour. He wished to focus the attraction of the conference on the sustentation fund now being raised by the Welsh Baptist Union. Of the total of 1.50,000 aimed at some 930,000 had been received, which in- cluded a grant of £5,000 from the Bap- tist Union of Great Britain and Ireland. 930,000 was not enough, and a strenuous effort must be made this year to secure, if not the whole amount, at least another £ 10,000. Their one part in the effort needed to be further organised. Many of their churches had responded nobly, and 9308 had been raised but quite half the churches in the association had not yet taken the matter up. As a. denomination they were the last to take up the question of a sustentation fund, but the beneficent results were far reaching. He hoped by its aid the stigma of the poorly paid minister would be removed for ever, and he appealed to the laymen of the churches to make it their responsibility. In the evening the Rev. Evan Williams, of Newport, preached. On Tuesday morning there was a devotional service conducted by the Rev. Owen Evans, and sermons in Welsh and English. In the afternoon the Rev. D. J. Hiley, C.F. (vice-president of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and Ire- land), who has served three years as a chaplain in France, and who has a great reputation as a forcible and eloquent speaker, preached to a large congregation, and in the evening he spoke to a big pub- lic meeting on The Church and the Vo— A,, W;!P1{,: also gave an address, taking as his sub- ject The Day Epochs in the World's emancipation."
