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 1965, and we understand it is still open.

This place of worship first came to my notice 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". There is an article (dated 24th November 2010) providing a summary of its foundation in 1965, and plans for its demolition to make way for The Resound Centre, a new church building and community centre for Emersons Green and Mangotsfield on the Bristol Post website.

The original building was erected by the Blackhorse Christian Fellowship, but was inherited by Bristol Christian Fellowship (BCF) in the mid 1990s when the two churches merged. Its replacement, the Resound Centre, was opened in March 2012. The new building has a large auditorium for worship, meetings, concerts and theatre, a community cafe, and art gallery. See Building Resound for the story of its construction, and Resound Community website for more information on today's church.

Denomination

Now or formerly Christian Fellowship.

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