Charles Bridges (1794-1869) was one of the leaders of the Evangelical party in the Church of England in the nineteenth century. He was the vicar of Old Newton, Suffolk, from 1823 to 1849, and later of Weymouth and Hinton Martell in Dorset.
Educated at Queen’s College, Cambridge, Bridges was ordained in 1817. As a preacher he was called upon for such important occasions as the Clerical Conference at Weston-super-Mare in 1858 (when he preached along with J. C. Ryle) and the consecration of the Bishop of Carlisle in York Minster in l860.
After his death a small selection of his correspondence was published in book form in 1870 and it reveals a man of deep Christian piety. ‘I never remember anyone,’ says the writer of the Foreword to The Christian Ministry, ‘in whose presence it was more difficult to be irreligious, or even frivolous.’
