HOLTON-ROAD ENGLISH BAPTIST SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. -J THE EDUCATION ACT AND SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK. Holton-road English Baptist Sunday School, Barry Dock, is one of the largest institutions of the kind in the town, there being on the registers over 500 scholars, with an average attendance of nearly 400 scholars. On Sunday last the anni- versary services were held, when special sermons were delivered to large congregations, both morning and evening, by the Rev J. M. Jones, Newbridge, Monmouthshire. Special anthems were sung at each service by the church choir, nnder the con- ductorship of Mr. Samuel Organ, the accompanists being Mrs Barrett and Mr G. Rogers. At thj after- noon services a programme of solos, recitations, &c., was rendered by Mrs Crisp, Misses E. John, Gwen Rose, Maud Barnett, Winnie Coates, Beaty Lang- ford, Alice Berry, Emily Camble, and Annie Davies, Masters Alfred Phelps and Fred James, The chair, in the unavoidable absence of Councillor J. A. Manaton, J.P., was occupied by Mr S. R. Jones, the Superintendent of the Sunday School. In an appropriate address to the teachers and scholars, the Rev J. M. Jones made a stirring appeal for more workers in Sunday school work. The Church of England, he said, through the arm of the State, were endeavouring to secure a hold upon the children, and had secured the passing of a new Education Bill, but how far it would prove Successful in its operations remained to be seen. The parents it was, be said. who should determine what religious instruction should be given to their children. This being so they should take care that the children were not coerced into a form of religious instruction which was contrary to the conscientious dictates of their parents, A. Miscellaneous entertainment was held in the schoolroom on Wednesday evening, when the children went through, in a crtditable manner, an excellent programme of action songs, &c., for which they had been trained by Miss James, Miss Evans, and Miss Williams. The chair was occupied by Alderman J. C. Meggitt, J.P., who t kes a deep practical interest in Sunday school work.
