Cemeteries

We believe the Church did 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 1905, but we understand it was closed before 1999.

This Mission Hall is first shown on Old Maps of 1903, and last noted in 1951-1952. According to an account of the Kingswood Whit Walk, in a book Religion in English Everyday Life: An Ethnographic Approach (Timothy Jenkins, 1999), it was a Gospel Hall which had been built in 1905 for the Christian Brethren, but was then (1999) "occupied by another independent house church". It is a small rectangular building of stone, with a red pantile roof. There is a central round-arched doorway, above with is a round-arched window, faced in lighter stone, and it has 2 rectangular window openings in the sides.

It is next door to the Page Community Association building, which made its first appearance on Maps of 1951-1952, where it was named as the Page Institute.

At the time of Google StreetView drive-past in 2012, the windows were all bricked up, so evidently it is no longer in use. It is certainly no longer in use by Brethren, as they are recorded in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010), with a Meeting Room in Lower Station Road, Staple Hill.

Denomination

Now or formerly Christian Brethren.

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