The Moody and Sankey Services. (2)

The services at Camberwell-green Hall have been numerously attended during the week, the Hall not being sufficiently large to hold the numbers that have gathered once or twice of any evening. This Sunday morning early meeting for Christian workers was attended by about 5,000 persons. The afternoon meeting for women only; the evening meeting was announced for men only, but the woman could not be kept out, and constituted about a fourth of the audience which was addressed by Mr. Moody . After this service, a meeting for young men was conducted by Mr. Drummond in the neighboring Presbyterian Church in Brunswick square. Collections for the hospital fund were made at the hall during the day, which realized the sum of 182 l 2 s 6 d , an amount larger than that collected either at St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey, if we leave out two 100 l checks given at the latter. Bible readings were commenced on Tuesday afternoon, and in the evening of the same day Mr. C H Spurgeon preached, the opening prayer being given by the Rev. C Stanford , of Denmark-place Chapel, who has just recovered from another attack of ill-health, and Mr. Sankey singing.

Messers. Moody and Sankey attended the Sunday morning service at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, and it may be mentioned that the worshippers at the same service included the Roman Baptist preacher, Signor Grassi, whose name has figured prominently in the recent evangelistic revival at Rome. Nature call has been conducting the evening services at the Victoria Theatre during the week.

Among the incidents of the movement at Camberwell may be mentioned the special trains from the provinces, and the reservation of front seats for the special ticket holding visitors from the provinces; the enormous quantity of “revival” literature hawked about the neighborhood of Camberwell-green; and the fact that the visitors at the hall do not seem to be drawn to a very great extent from the residents in the neighbourhood.

It may interest many to know (as may be seen from an advertisment) That Messrs. Snow are publishing, and the local booksellers (Mr. Morris, of the Green, and Mr. Pattie, of High-street), have for sale, a well got-up little volume of choice extracts from Mr. Moody’s discourses under the title of “Life Words.”

To-morrow (Sunday) Evening, at Camberwell-green Congregational Chapel, the Rev. Clements Clemance, B. A., will preach on the subject whether the probable results of Messrs. Moody and Sankey’s visit will be a desirable one.
