Clarendon Park Congregational Church

Clarendon Park Congregational Church is part of the Congregational Federation. Congregationalism seeks to model itself upon the principles of the New Testament. Back in the 16th Century brave men and women took a courageous stand against what was then a largely corrupt State Church. By becoming a dissenting church the members risked imprisonment and their leaders risked death. Indeed many did die and whole congregations were cast into prison. But despite the persecution they grew and spread across Britain becoming at one time the largest Free Church denomination in the UK
