Preaching this Coming Lord's Day
God willing, this coming Lord's Day I shall be preaching at the Tabernacle Baptist Church, Great Park Street, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. England. The services at the Tabernacle are at 10.45 AM and 6.00 PM.
The drawing shows the chapel, which reached its present appearance (more or less) in about 1900, when a wealthy deacon, a local brewer, completely renovated the old chapel, bought the leasehold land on which it had been built, and gave it to the church along with an impressive manse. The result was an argument as to whether or not the church should accept property bought with beer money. A better question would have been whether or not the church should have appointed a brewer as deacon in the first place. Thankfully common sense finally prevailed.
