THE CHAPEL STOPPED AT OVERTON

rr HE mobile chapel presented to Menevia travelling Mission last year has come to a temporary stop. It is to become a semi-permanent chapel for the people of Overton-onDee.

Through the kindneas of a Protestant woman. a good position has been secured in the village. and a lawn and flower beds have been prepared around the chapel. Later. when it is possible to build a permanent chapel the mobile one will move on to another village as the precursor of another permanent building. More good news reported this week by the Lamp Society. organ of the Menevia Travelling Mission, is that a third Mission Van will soon be on the road: and that a site has been secured at Rhayader-where Mass is at present said in a police courtfor the erection of a chapel.

The cost of the site and the building of the chapel will probably be :1 bout 11,000. and although there is £400 in hand for this project, subscriptions in the first quarter of this year have fallen considerably bringing worry to the society-especially now that a third missioner is to take the road.

An opportunity to meet one of the missioners is provided at days of recollection which are planned for London on Sunday, May 10; Manchester : July 5; and Newcastle: August 9. Details from: The Lamp Society, 125 Heath Road, Bebington, Cheshire.
