“However, from an historical viewpoint, this church is most famous for being the place where Charles Haddon Spurgeon – a very famous Victorian preacher – was converted in January 1850. As a lad of 15, Spurgeon was struggling up Hythe Hill in a snow blizzard one Sunday, trying to get to another church in Colchester. He realised he was not going to make it and turned instead into this chapel in Artillery Street. Here he heard the simple Gospel message from Isaiah 45:22 ‘Look to Me and be saved’. His life was changed that day forever; he gave his heart and life to the Lord, and trusted Him for the forgiveness of his sins. Like many today who put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Spurgeon found peace with God and experienced a personal and meaningful relationship with Him.”

The chapel was sold to a secular use and then re-established as what would become, Artillery Street Evangelical Church.
