1760 Constitution of Lagland Street Congregational Chapel

Densham & Ogle, the authors of The Congregational Churches of Dorset (1899) quoted the whole constitution in their book, mentioning that the original was stored in the Skinner Street Congregational Chapel safe. However, when the church archive was catalogued in early 2019, it was not found and is therefore assumed to be lost to posterity. SSCC

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.
