Administrative / Biographical History

It was only through the Quarterly Meetings that ministers and members of Independent churches in particular areas were able to meet. Initially, only discussions took place within these meetings, but from the 1830's onwards they acquired more powers to regulate the appointment of ministers. The meetings took place at different chapels within the North Caernarfonshire area.
