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 1930, but we understand it was closed in 1970, and the premises are now in secular use.

This former place of worship is documented in the leaflet South Gloucestershire Extensive Urban Survey Archaeological Assessment Report - Filton (PTE070183.pdf) available on the South Gloucestershire Council website. It was built in 1930 of red brick, with Bath stone dressings. Their account records that meetings ceased in 1970, and the building was used as a clothing store until 1976, when the building was reopened as an area headquarters.

The front of the building facing the road has two tall rectangular windows on either side of a central doorway, above which is a plaque which reads "Booth Court". Above this again is a round-arched window, and there are smaller rectangular windows in the sides.

Today, it is no longer in use by the Salvation Army, and a postcode search for 'Booth Court' reveals it has been converted into 6 flats.

NB: it is just outside the boundary of Bristol with Filton.


Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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


This Church was located at OS grid reference ST6042278027. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
