1704 & 1741 Church Covenants Associated with Skinner Street Congregational Chapel

The covenants were adopted by the membership of the Great Presbyterian Meeting House, Hill Street, Poole and both arose from divisive disputes. The first concerned church governance, the authority to appoint the minister, in particular. It was a key factor in a secession of members from St. James’ Church, resulting in the formation of the Hill Street meeting house. The second arose from theological differences, which contributed to an unknown number of members leaving in 1739 and later the same issues resulted in a large number leaving to set up the Lagland Street Congregational Chapel, the predecessor of the Skinner Street Congregational Chapel (founded in 1760 and 1777 respectively).

1765 Letter from Rev. Samuel Philipps to Mr. Martin Kemp

This letter reveals the acrimonious ending to Rev. Philipps’ ministry, which had spanned a total of 12 years of ministry, first in Hill Street and later in Lagland Street, Poole (1753 – 1765). In the seventh year of his ministry (1760), he was ejected from the Great Presbyterian Meeting House, Hill Street, Poole, but he continued his ministry in the newly founded Congregational Chapel in Lagland Street, to which many members from Hill Street seceded with him. Readers may be interested in the footnotes, which give more details about the circumstances surrounding the letter.
