The ministry of William Gadsby at St George's Road Baptist Chapel, Manchester, provides both parallels and points of contrast to that of William Nunn. Similarly espousing high Calvinism and working in an area of acute poverty, Gadsby advocated Sunday schools and demonstrated not only an active social concern but also a political theology that had a radical dimension. His preaching was key to his urban response, and his extensive itinerant ministry was suggestive of a continuing debt to the Evangelical Revival.
