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 1863, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 records "a Baptist chapel at Birches Lane, erected in 1863, with 200 sittings" under the parish of Wessington, but Kain & Oliver's Map (Sheet 111) shows it within South Wingfield parish boundaries, and its postal address today is South Wingfield.

Evidently, also, the Registrar General assigned it to South Wingfield too, as the following notice appeared in The London Gazette of 27th June 1902 (p.4206):

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building named BAPTIST CHAPEL, situated at Bircheslane, in the civil parish of South Wingfield, in the county of Derby, in the registration district of Belper, being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was on the twenty-fourth day of June, 1902, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 25 June, 1902.

Kelly's Directory entry for South Wingfield doesn't mention it, but it does record "a Gospel Hall at Birches Lane, now used by the Brethren". Possibly this was the same building, as today, the Baptist Church's notice board says there is a "Godspel Gospel Service" mid-week.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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