The Dr Williams' Library in Gordon Square, London has a unique and extensive range of books and documents which offer insights into the history and ministerial education of religious dissent in Britain. 

There are portraits of ministers and others, collections of letters and inspiring sermons, rare books and other interesting records. There is a portrait of the great writer, Isaac Watts, who wrote the hymn, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, inspired by a passage from scripture (Galatians 6:14). 

A summary of the aims of the Library Trust - "The purpose of the Trust is to assist in the provision of an educated Protestant Dissenting Ministry in the United Kingdom and to maintain and give support to Dr. Williams's Library. The Trustees look to develop the Library in ways which will enable it to make a significant contribution to the understanding of Protestant dissent."
