Saturday 11 December 1847


On Sunday, the 28th ult., two sermons were preached in the School-room, in St. Paul's, Lane Bridge, Burnley, on behalf of the Sunday schools established in that new ecclesiastical district, when collections were made amounting to £8 12s. 0 1/2d. The preacher in the morning was the Rev. R. Nicholson, of Marsden; and in the evening the Rev. D. Sutcliffe, M.A., curate of St. John's, Worsthorne. On the latter occasion the room was well filled, although the weather was unfavourable. As a preacher, Mr. Sutcliffe is beginning to attract considerable attention in this locality. Bred and born in the neighbourhood of Burnley, and receiving the groundwork of his education at the grammar school, the members of the church there feel proud that, whilst it has been said "a Prophet is without honour in his own country," there is an exception in his case; and he is universally beloved by his rural congregation. His discourses, though elegantly and logically composed, are yet so plain and succinct, and his delivery is so impressive and serious, as to win the attention of the most careless. As a pastor, he is indefatigable in his duties; and his exertions in the village school are beyond all praise. Although his removal from Worsthorne would be severely felt, we trust that some more extensive sphere of usefulness may soon be opened to him. -Correspondent.
