Watch-Night Sevices

Fri 31 Dec 1756: We had a solemn watch-night and ushered in the new year with the voice of praise and thanksgiving.

Fri 31 Dec 1779: We concluded the year at West Street with a solemn watch-night. Most of the congregation stayed till the beginning of the year and cheerfully sang together:
Glory to God, and thanks, and praise,
Who kindly lengthens out our days, etc.
