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 1852, and we understand it is still open.

A plaque to the left of the entrance doorway says "C / I + S / 1852"; and in fact this is one of John Smedley's six Wesleyan Reform chapels. It was enlarged sideways in 1879, when a parallel nave was added, with a pulpit at the west end, whilst the original nave and chancel were converted to a schoolroom.

Like several Derbyshire churches and chapels, it takes advantage of being built into a sloping hillside by having an underfloor area, though it is not clear now what this is used for.

It appears to have been known as "Trinity Methodist Church" for a limited period. Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide list it as such, and notes that its congregation amalgamated with that of Mount Zion in 1965. Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) also lists it as Trinity Methodist, and it is also identified as such on some Old Maps, for instance OS 1968-1969 1:2,500.

At present, it is not known which of the 2 other Methodist Chapels in Holloway was known as Zion.

Denomination

Now or formerly Free/United Methodist.

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