The Society for the supply of additional curates has been doing good work for many years past in towns and districts where the existing numbers of clergy find the overflowing populations too numerous to deal with. By providing an extra Curate, it has enabled hundreds of families, previously neglected, to share in the ministrations of the Church. On behalf of this society, the deputation, the Rev. J, J. Coles, preached on Wednesday evening, July 19th, from Luke iv. 18, 19. The collection amounted to l4s. 3d. The Vicar will gladly give boxes to others who are willing to collect for Association.
