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 1882, and we understand it is still open.

Shown on OS Maps eg 1884-1887 1:10:560 as "Methodist (United Free)". It is set back from the road, partially behind what may have been an attached school building. The date on the pediment is 1882.

It is listed by the Derby Church Net website as "Zion Methodist Church", but (probably more recently) by the Borders Mission Circuit, as South Wingfield Methodist Church. The Borders Mission Circuit, perhaps not unexpectedly, includes Methodist churches in both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

It was probably the place of worship referred to in the following notice in The London Gazette of 17th March 1903 (p.1794):

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named METHODIST FREE CHURCH; situated at South Wingfield, in the civil parish of South Wingfield, in the county of Derby, in Belper registration district, was, on the tenth March, 1903, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated the 11th March, 1903.

Apparently places of worship have to be registered for at least a year before they can be solemnized for marriages to take place.

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.
