Mercy Seat – William Booth Memorial College – UK

At the College for Officer Training in the UK, I discovered that the old Mercy Seat is now located in a very small chapel.  So I got a couple of good pictures though due to the size of the room I needed to take the photos on an angle to get a good shot.

You’ll note the detail carved into the back of the Mercy Seat – the SA for Salvation Army.  These old Mercy Seats are disappearing and where I can I make sure I have a photograph.  Are you capturing any?

Tomorrow I hope I’ll have some time to get into the refurbished chapel and take a picture of the current Mercy Seat.

No matter the age however I am always moved by the symbolism and the knowledge that at these places people have knelt and had their lives changed!
