Plymouth brethren

The history of the Plymouth brethren in Eiði goes back to the 1920’s. In the early years they would congregate in the dancehall aswell as in private homes. By the late 1940’s the demand for permanent housing had risen and in october 1948, a hall stood ready and was taken into use by the brethren. It’s called Mizpa, the Hebrew word for lighthouse.
