"During many years, the Independents and Baptists residing in Rochester were mostly identified, as members, with the churches of Christ in Chatham and Strood. But, in 1851, a few of the members of the Independent church at Chatham, who had ardently desired a sanctuary in their own city, were offered a plot ground, near the Vines, Rochester, by Mr Shirley, one of the deacons of their church. In consequence of this offer, they invited the Rev. Dr Jenkyn to commence his ministry in that city, under the sanction of the church at Chatham."
