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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it is still open.

"Orchard House, Ridgewood Community Centre, 244 Station Road" is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as a meeting place of the "Full Gospel Fellowship", with a congregation of "Christians not otherwise designated".

Note: the Community Centre buildings were originally part of Chipping Sodbury Union Workhouse. The Union included the parishes of Acton Turville, Chipping Sodbury, Cold Ashton, Dyrham & Hinton, Dodington, Doynton, Filton, Frampton Cotterell, Great Badminton, Hawkesbury, Horton, Iron Acton, Little Sodbury, Marshfield, Old Sodbury, Pucklechurch, Stoke Gifford, Tormarton, Wapley & Codrington, West Littleton, Westerleigh, Wick & Abson, Wickwar, Winterbourne and Yate. The area in 1923 was 69,736 acres. In 1924, it is called "Chipping Sodbury Poor Law Institution", and by 1970, the buildings are labelled as "Ridgewood (home for the aged)".


Now or formerly Spiritualist.

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