COMFORT, Reverend J.W.  (fl. 1890s) – lecturer

‘Intelligence’ in Sunday School Chronicle

“Bromsgrove - New-road Baptist - On Monday, Dec 14th, the Rev. J. W. Comfort, gave a review of the past half year's International Lessons, illustrated by a series of lime-light views. As each view, illustrating a Sunday's lesson, was thrown on the screen, it was briefly explained, and a few verses from the lesson were read. Twelve little girls, each in her turn recited the Golden Text and the hymn verse for the day. A novel, but instructive and devout review of the lessons was thus obtained. ”
