Signed Ward & Hughes London 1886.

Texts: Thy people shall be my people and thy God my God (Ruth 1:16); For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue (Luke 7:5); As ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matthew 25:40).

Lord and Lady Londonderry were benefactors of the church which explains the reference to the centurion from Luke 7.
