The Small Heath Baptist Church was established in Victoria Street, Birmingham, in 1873, and was moved to its present site in 1891. The first pastor, Charles Joseph , who was a lay preacher and working mason before being called to the church, helped enthusiastically in the actual building operations. Later in his career he was given the highest honour of the Baptist Church, being made president of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and Ireland. The present pastor, T. Percy George , has been minister since 1921.

An appeal on behalf of LEICESTER POOR Boys' AND GIRLS'
SUMMER CAMP AND INSTITUTE by Baroness RAVENSDALE
The object of the organisation is to provide free holidays at Mablethorpe for the poor children of Leicester. Many hundreds of boys and girls are sent away for a fortnight each summer. During the winter months they are taught the rudiments of various industries.
Building on the new homes at
Mablethorpe was begun in 1935, when an appeal by Lady Nutting was broadcast in the Week's Good Cause to raise another £6,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed].
Conductor, George W. Cave
Robert Easton (bass)
The Coventry Colliery Band was started in 1930 by a few miners and their friends in the village of Keresley, near Coventry.
George W. Cave, who is conducting the programme this evening, has several times adjudicated at the Crystal Palace and Belle Vue festivals. He was appointed musical director of the band in 1936. Robert Easton , who is to sing two groups of songs, was born in Sunderland and joined a church choir at the age of six. After service in the war he studied singing under various distinguished teachers, including Plunket Greene and Dawson Freer. Since that time he has come to the fore as a solo singer, having sung at most musical festivals and with the leading choral societies. He has performed at Covent Garden during the opera season.
