Join us for these lectures and study..

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of
salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers. Its
histories are true, its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding,
and its decisions are immutable.
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy.
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to
cheer you. It is the traveller's map, the pilgrim's staff, the sailor's
compass, the soldier's sword. and the Christian charter. Here paradise
is restored, heaven is opened and the gates of hell are disclosed.
Christ is its subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its
end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.
Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a
paradise of glory and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will
be opened at the
judgement and will be remembered forever. It involves
the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labour and condemns all
who trifle with Its holy contents...

Hinchingbrooke House is the ancestral home of the Cromwell family. Oliver Cromwell was well acquainted with the Lords church.  For a while whilst in London he had met with the Bell Alley church of Christ (Coleman Street), the same one that some of the pilgrim Fathers also worshipped with.  Cromwells son-in-law, The Lord Deputy Fleetwood was married to Bridgett, being her second husband, the first having died.  They were both members of the church of Christ and well known for it.  Major-General Harrison, Major-General Ludlow and Colonel Hutchinson were other well known members of the church.  As such they were able to influence parliament against imposing a compulsory religion enforced by the CoE.
