"and the opening services were arranged for Wednesday 10th September. The afternoon service was conducted by the Rev. V.H. Cornforth, the chairman of the Bedford and Northampton District, who preached on the healing of the Syro-Phoenician woman's daughter. In the evening the President of Conference, the Rev. Benjamin Gregory, spoke from the text, "Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh shall He find peace on earth." St. Luke 18 verse 8.
