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 the 1860s, and we understand it is still open.

Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website records that Westbury Park Methodist Church was founded in the 1860s, when a "tin tabernacle" was built, which - apparently - still survives, in Berkeley Road. It had small gothic windows, and a spirelet, and seems to have been clad in stone.

Its replacement is a large and impressive building. Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 includes it as one of the most important of the 19 Wesleyan chapels it lists - the Wesleyan chapel, Etloe road, Westbury park, erected in 1891, at a cost of £3,500 is an edifice of stone, in the Early Decorated Gothic style, from designs by Mr. H.D. Bryan, architect of Bristol, and consists of apsidal chancel, nave, transepts, vestry and lecture hall".

It is labelled on Old Maps of 1903 as "Trinity Church", and incidentally, the first available Map, a Town Plan of 1882, shows no trace of the earlier building.

To return to the present day, however, as Westbury Park Methodist Church, it is now in a Local Ecumenical Partnership with St Alban's Church, formerly Church of England, and known by the name of "The Church in Westbury Park".

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

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