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 1868, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1902 records Tyndale Chapel as one of 17 Baptist chapels in Bristol, erected at a cost of about £13,000, and opened September 30th, 1868. It is described as "a cruciform structure of Pennant stone, with freestone dressings in a modern Gothic style, consisting of a species of chancel, nave, baptistry, vestries, porches, and a partially completed tower". A lecture-room and class-rooms were added in 1880.

The story is continued by Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website. He notes that it was founded from Old King Street, and funded by the local Robinson packaging family. They also paid for the tower, with a chime of bells, to be completed in 1894, so it seems that Kelly was a few years out of date in saying it was unfinished. Sadly, however, this beautiful church was to be hit by a bomb during WWII, which destroyed the main body of the building. The present church was rebuilt in 1957, but incorporates the tower and parts of the west front and porches from the original building. It is also built of pennant stone and is cruciform. "In fact the church mirrors the original building but along more simplistic lines".

The following notice in The London Gazette of 28th December 1869 (p.7398) indicates its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named Tyndale Chapel, situated at Whiteladies-road, in the parish of Westbury-upon-Trym, in the county of Gloucester, in the district of Clifton, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 21st day of December, 1869, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. IV., cap. 85. Dated 22nd December 1869.

At least two other Baptist congregations are known to have been seeded from Tyndale - at Westbury on Trym, where a Baptist Church was built in 1947, and Lawrence Weston; plus a mission church in Deanery Road (now demolished).

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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