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 1887, and we understand it is still open.

The Memorial Hall at Woodcroft was built by Christian Morgan of Tidenham House, in memory of her husband, Thomas Henry Morgan, originally as a Temperance Hall. At the time of Kelly's Directory of 1923, it was said to contain reading and coffee rooms, and a spacious hall in which religious services were held.

According to the information about Woodcroft on the Tidenham Historical Group website, "Christiana and her daughters Sophia and Emily were very active in the Temperance Movement and also founded the Mission at Stroat". It also mentions the missions being visited by Gladys Aylward (1902-1970), an Evangelical Christian missionary, in the early 1960s.

In the present day, it is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) with a congregation of "Christians not otherwise designated", and it now operates as a Charitable Trust, and interdenominational Christian Centre with a particular focus on young people.

Denomination

Now or formerly Evangelical.

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