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 by 1964, and we understand it is still open.

St John's Methodist Church in Allestree is a modern building, adjacent to the Park Farm shopping centre. Their website was the former home of an account of A History of Methodism in Derby and District, now transferred to the Derby Methodist History website.

Whilst I do not have information on when it was officially opened, evidently it was before 1964, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 5th June 1964 (p.4868) records its registration for marriages that year:

A Building certified for worship named ST. JOHN'S METHODIST CHURCH, Birchover Way, Allestree in the registration district of Shardlow in the county of Derby was on 28th May 1964, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 2nd June 1964.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.

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 Allestree, 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.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that whilst the above account may suggest that St John's Methodist Church remains open and accessible, this may not remain so.
