Duke Street Church
In 2020, Duke Street Church, where we normally hold our meetings, is celebrating its 150th anniversary. Duke Street Church, founded by Frederick Brotherton Meyer, dates back to 1870 and its first building, erected in 1881, was octagonal-shaped and built in stone. The current building was constructed on the same site in 1962 with a large auditorium to seat over 600. The Victorian dance hall, Princes Hall, was bought by the church and eventually demolished, being replaced in 2010 with a cafe area, meeting rooms and offices.
At the invitation of Duke Street Church we will be joining its congregation to commemorate the church’s history. Dr Matthew Bingham, author of Orthodox Radicals: Baptist Identity in the English Revolution (2019, Oxford University Press) will be the guest speaker.
Matthew Bingham teaches systematic theology and church history at Oak Hill College, lonodn, which prepares and train men and women for ministry in Anglican and Independent churches. His research focuses on religion in early modern England. Originally from the United States, he studied history at UCLA and received his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. He holds a PhD in history from Queen’s University, Belfast
