Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 1940s, and we understand it is still open.

The Junction 28 Church is so called because of its location adjacent to Junction 28 on the M1 Motorway. According to information on the churchinsight.com website in 2013, when I prepared this account, it had then been in existence for over 65 years "from its inception as an outreach mission centre, through the initial leadership of George Oldershaw (aka the missionary who stayed at home) through to life today… This makes its foundation in the 1940s, but this must have been under a different name, as that was before the Motorway was built!

More recently (2018) I have learned from J28 Church website that it was named The Revival Centre when its first purpose built facility was opened in 1955. Today however they have an attractive new (in 2012) building, opened on the same site, which as it happens is (in 2018) also recorded on the website of "Permarock", a designer and supplier of external wall insulation and exterior render systems.

Denomination

Now or formerly Assemblies of God.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for South Normanton, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
