This book is more than merely the history of a local church. It tells the way in which a rural village became a wealthy London inner suburb over three centuries, only to decline in the next, thus mirroring the changing story of one of the truly important Nonconformist congregations in England. It describes the theological trends of the various periods and gives an account of the powerful families who attended the church in its heyday, with their involvement in business and politics.
"This book is a carefully researched history of Clapham
Congregational Church over the three centuries of its life. However,
it is also the story of how a rural village became a wealthy London
suburb. The book describes theological trends and tells of the
powerful families who attended the church in its heyday." - Reform Magazine
