BRIGHTSIDE: Brightside Darnall Congregational Church History up to 1868.


At Brightside, a small village midway between Rotherham and Sheffield, now rapidly stretching out towards the latter town, there has been for many years a small room, in which lay-preachers from Sheffield have conducted Divine worship. Two years ago (in 1865-6), a new and greatly enlarged room was built, and an Evangelist was stationed here in connection with the church at Attercliffe, under the pastoral care of Rev. J. Calvert.

The Evangelist, Rev. J. Parkinson, has also a preaching station at Darnall, another village near Attercliffe. It is intended to erect a chapel at Brightside, to accommodate the very fast-increasing population of the district.
