Rodborough Tabernacle dates back to the non-conformist preacher George Whitefield, who on Sunday July 1, 1739 gave an outdoor sermon on a barrow mound at Minchinhampton Common that is now known as 'Whitefield's Tump". A young man in the crowd named Thomas Adams was so moved by Whitefield's preaching that he donated the land in 1749 to serve as a site for an independent non-conformist place of worship. The central three bays at the north front of the Tabernacle were built in 1750, with four more bays being added in 1836/7 when the chapel was enlarged to create the present two-storey building. The full name of the church today is the Rodborough Tabernacle United Reformed Church.
