In Barrington, Nova Scotia, the two Free Will Baptist sects in the province met in conference with the object of uniting their efforts.  The Free Christian Baptist Conference and the Free Will Baptist Quarterly Meeting had been seperated for decades but emerged from the Barrington meeting as the united Free Will Baptist Conference of Nova Scotia.  (By John Osborne)
