Establishing the Ministry – Galle

Rev Walter Clifford

Carl F Graves and his wife Bertha appointed missionaries to Ceylon from USA. From 1931-1934 they supervise the already-established work in Colombo, during the absence of Pastor Clifford.  At this time (Sept. 1931) the address of the church is given as “Glad Tidings Hall,” Wellawatte, Colombo.

In 1935 they took over the work begun in Galle by Walter Clifford. They constructed the Galle church in 1936. The Ceylon Bible Institute was begun in 1937 at Galle by Rev Carl Graves and shifted to Melbourne Avenue Bambalapitiya. The Graves couple ministered in Ceylon until 1955.
