HAWES: Hawes Congregational Church History up to 1868.

Hawes Congregational Church History up to 1868.


In 1841, the neighbouring ministers began to preach in rotation at this place in a hired room. The Congregational Church was formed in May, 1843. In 1851 the present chapel was erected. The pastors have been-
  • 1843 ? Rev. WILLIAM PALMER. He left in the year 1845 for Northallerton.
  • 1845. Rev. J. W. ROLLS (of Cotton End Acy.). He removed to Kirby-Moorside in 1852.
  • 1852. Rev. A. C. Wood (of Glasgow University), who is the present minister (in 1868).
Widdale and Bainbridge are two important out-stations. The congregation at the latter place was established in 1851 as a branch of the church at Hawes, and receives preaching aid thence, and from the minister at West Burton. A chapel was built in 1864, with a schoolroom, "where are now gathered old and young from Sabbath to Sabbath, to hear the words of eternal life."

* Aided by Rev. A. C. Wood.
