Worthing Tabernacle was formed, under God, by Pastor C. Douglas Crouch, in 1896. For reasons of conscience he and others were led to sever their connections with the Baptist Union, owing to its absorption of liberal views on Scripture. The opposition to this controversy, known as the Downgrade Movement, was championed by Crouch’s mentor, the great London preacher, C.H. Spurgeon and the Tabernacle derives its name (and interior design!) from his church building, the Metropolitan Tabernacle.
