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).

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
