Christianity was the most widely held religion in Britain during the 19th century. Within Christianity there were - and are - many different groups, including Roman Catholics, Methodists, Anglicans, Quakers, Baptists and Presbyterians. Strict religious families kept Sunday as a day of rest and family members were not allowed to read novels or play games of any kind. The whole day was taken up with prayer and attending church services. Many children went to Sunday school classes, where they were instructed in the tenets and practical application of their faiths. This leaflet is appealing for funds for the international Sunday School Union.
