Learn all about our history and C.H. Spurgeon.
The great Victorian ‘Prince of Preachers’, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, began his ministry here at the Baptist church in Waterbeach. Every great venture of faith has to begin somewhere, and we are seeking to rekindle the passion and impact of Spurgeon’s ministry in our present-day community some 170 years later. Spurgeon always had a fond love and appreciation for the place where his ministry began, laying the foundation stone of the new chapel in 1863. We still possess at Spurgeon’s Chapel his heartfelt sentiments in the form of personal messages in hymn books and a Pulpit Bible, signed prints of himself, communion silver, and handwritten sermon notes. We believe Spurgeon’s Chapel is historically significant and stands to remind us of a time when God moved powerfully through the preaching of His Word in our nation.
Today we still preach the gospel with passion so that people might turn to the Lord Jesus for their eternal salvation; we are blessed and encouraged to know that there are churches throughout the world who stand on God's Word in unity with us.
