Pole Moor, Yorkshire.

On July 27th, a meeting was held in the Baptist chapel at Pole Moor to originate a movement for the erection of a new place of worship there, the present place having become too small. About 300 persons sat down to tea. After the tea a sermon was preached by the Rev. W. Walters, and at the close a list of persons enrolled their names as subscribers. The estimated cost is £1,200, above half of which was given or promised at the meeting. The friends at Pole Moor need a larger chapel; they are doing nobly themselves and deserve the kind sympathy and aid of Christian friends.
