'A day of new hope dawned for the cause in 1910 in the appointment of the first young Minister - the Rev J. Wesley Howells, who alas, was destined to lose his life a few years later in the Royal Flying Corps. He left the mark of his dedicated vigour on the Society. Mr Barrett remembers the way the congregation increased. A Wesley Guild began, as effective in its appeal to the teenagers of England then as is MAYC nowadays. Mr Howell's v'ried talents were never better symbolised than in the vividly contrasting facts that he both regularly travelled into London at 7 in the morning to study at the British Museum - and that also he was capable of making excellent sausages for Church social occasions!'
