This degree of independence and freedom in religious worship was unique in its day and has a lasting legacy in Wilmington, DE as recalled every year there in The Big August Quarterly, a Gospel community street festival held on King Street between the Government buildings and the offices of the Delaware electrical power company, which was built on the site of the original church established by Peter Spencer.
