A sermon which Mr Longden preached at Eyam, is yet remembered when the Lord poured water upon the thirsty, and floods upon the dry grounds. Twenty-six persons professed to experience redemption in the blood of Christ, the forgiveness of all their sins, most of whom adorn their profession and hold fast the beginning of their confidence with steadfastness unto this day. This was no strange thing; it was frequently the case in a love feast, preaching or prayer meeting, that ten or twenty were justified by faith, and returned home praising a reconciled God.

The chapel was built in 1787.
