“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees. Let no one GO there UNWARNED and UNPRAYED for.”
Spurgeon preached his first sermon, at a Cottage in Teversham, in 1850. In 1852 he was appointed pastor at Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire, and then on April 28, 1854, he was installed to the pastorate at New Park Street Chapel, Southwark, in London; he took over the care of 232 members. Quickly, the congregation outgrew the building and moved to Exeter Hall, grew again and went on to Surrey Music Hall. In these locations Spurgeon often preached to audiences of more than 10,000.
