The Metropolitan Tabernacle.
The Tabernacle Fellowship goes back to the year 1650, thirty years after the sailing of the Pilgrim Fathers, and at the time that Parliament had just banned Baptist meetings. The Tabernacle traces its roots to a congregation which braved constant persecution.
The present site was acquired for the Tabernacle partly because of its prominent situation and partly because it was thought to be the site of the burning of the Southwark Martyrs. For this reason our foundation-stone bears the words: 'The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.'
