[Photos below] One memorable day in September 1983, Mr Sydney Maxwell (1919-1993) stood to his feet in the Larne Conference and related the thrilling story of his salvation and how he saw the truth of baptism and gathering to the Lord’s name. Sydney was willing to go where the Word of God led him, no matter the cost, so when he learnt the truth of the local assembly (under the wing of a “Sunderland” in the Shorts aircraft factory in Belfast) he did not hesitate to go “unto Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach”. Sydney was a Bible teacher and a warm-hearted evangelist who was a joy to listen to. He began his message by reading three passages that contain the words “unto Him” (2 Cor 5:15, Heb 13:13 and 2 Thess 2:1). At the same conference Mr Maxwell preached the gospel on the Sunday evening.
