The Gadfield Elm Chapel, in Eldersfield, Worcester, England, was built in 1836 by members of the United Brethren, who were “calling upon the Lord to … send them light and knowledge that they might know the true way to be saved,” wrote Wilford Woodruff. He baptized many of them—including about forty of their preachers. The group gave the building to the Church, and it was later the site of a June 1840 conference at which twelve branches of the Church were organized.
