Venn House

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ." - 1 Peter 4:10-11a

John Venn (1759–1813) was a priest of the Church of England and a central figure of the Clapham sect. One of the original founders of the Church Missionary Society in 1797, Venn was a leading abolitionist and philanthropist. John Venn’s preaching greatly influenced Henry Thornton in the formation of the Clapham Sect. Venn’s grandson, also named John, was famous for introducing the Venn diagram.
