Bethel Strict Baptist Chapel (also described as Bethel Calvinist Chapel) is a former place of worship for Reformed Baptists#Strict Baptists in Robertsbridge, a village in the district of Rother in the English county of East Sussex. Partly hidden behind ancient buildings on the village High Street, the simple brick chapel was erected in 1842 on the initiative of James Weller, a "somewhat remarkable man" whose preaching had attracted large audiences across Kent and East Sussex in the previous decade. The Strict Baptist cause was historically strong in East Sussex, and Protestant Nonconformism thrived in Robertsbridge, which was distant from the nearest Anglican parish church. The chapel closed in about 1999 and permission was granted for its conversion into a house. English Heritage has desi

  • De Bethel Strict Baptist Chapel is een voormalige Strict Baptist kapel aan de High Street in het dorp Robertsbridge, East Sussex. De kapel is gebouwd in 1842 (zichtbaar op de ingemetselde gevelsteen) op initiatief van James Weller, die de gemeente diende tot 1847. Op 17 januari 1843 wordt het kerkje geopend. Van 1848 tot 1881 wordt de gemeente gediend door George Stedman. Dit was de tweede en de laatste predikant van de gemeente. Na een opleving tussen 1940 en 1960 wordt de gemeente in de tweede helft van de 20e eeuw door vergrijzing en kerkverlating steeds kleiner. De laatste kerkdienst werd gehouden in 1999, waarna het gebouw is omgebouwd tot woonhuis.
