Historical Summary

This was a period of significant change in the social and Christian spheres. Christian voices demanded change in many social settings, for example the Congregationalists founding Rochford's first town school catering for poorer children. 

New Christian denominations were also emerging which emphasised the importance of Christians having a personal relationship with Jesus.
