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 by 1899, and we understand it is still open.

From the outside, St Mark's Baptist Church looks like a cottage, but from above, one can see it is a cruciform building, with extensions to the north-west and south-west quadrants. The entrance is from St Mark's Road, where the facade is painted in white, and features several interesting murals, with a Biblical theme. It is referred to on Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website as "Easton Baptist Mission", built (he says) in 1911.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 16th January 1912 (p.385) records its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BAPTIST MISSION HALL, situated at St. Mark's-road, Easton, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, was, on the 11th January, 1912, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85, being substituted for the building named Manor Hall Evangelistic Mission, situated at St. Mark's-road, Easton, now disused. Dated the 12th day of January, 1912.

A similar notice in the Gazette of 21st February 1899 (p.1119) had recorded the registration "Manor Hall Evangelistic Mission, situated at St. Mark's-road, Easton" for marriages. Perhaps this later became "St Mark's Baptist Sunday School", listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) with an address of "Henrietta Street, St Mark's Road".

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.
