The Tabernacle, Stanley, Falkland Is.

The Tabernacle, Stanley is a very special church.  It was originally one of many "kit" churches, sent out to the remoter corners of the British Empire by the famous preacher, Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-92), of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London (hence the name of course!)  in the late 19th Century.

Check out the Spurgeon archive and biography sites.

To this day the Tabernacle has maintained a Reformed Christian witness in this remote corner of the world.

Although they do not currently have a pastor, there are services morning and evening each Sunday and regular midweek activities.

I suppose the reason the place is so special to me, is that it was there that I first preached and lead a service.

So, if you are ever lucky enough to be visiting the Falkland Islands, let me know, and I'll put you in touch with the right people.
