his first sermon at a cottage meeting

Description: THE STORY OF HOW Charles Haddon Spurgeon preached his first sermon at a cottage meeting in the little village of Teversham, and how as a result of the ability shown therein he was placed upon the plan of village preachers in the Cambridge district, has been told too often to need repetition here. It was not long before he was invited to the permanent pastorate of Waterbeach Chapel, and the fame of the young divine¬óyoung in years but old in spiritual experience and in skill as a teacher and expositor of Holy Writ¬ósoon spread for miles around, so that when he was The Cottage at Teversham where in 1850 C. H. Spurgeon, as a lad of sixteen, preached his first sermon.occupying the pulpit men and women drove in from outlying villages in large numbers, and the chapel, hitherto half empty, was filled to excess with an expectant and devout congregation. And that it was not mere eloquence that attracted and held the people was proved in a very short time, for the whole character of the village¬óhitherto noted above other local villages for its sin and indifference to religion¬ówas changed, and the results of Spurgeon's work have lived to the present day. His preaching was indeed "the power of God unto salvation," and scarcely a service passed without there being known cases of conversion.
