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 1975, and we understand it is still open.

Bristol Progressive Synagogue is situated on the north-west corner of the junction of Bannerman Road with Felix Road. It looks to be an end-of-terrace conversion, rather than custom built, since Old Maps show the buildings, and the road arrangement were in place by 1885.

How did the building became the Progressive Synagogue? The Living Easton website provides the answer, in their document:Living Easton's Proposed Easton Women's History Trail. It describes how the Bristol and West Progressive Jewish Congregation had been meeting at the Friends Meeting House in Redland since 1961, and were searching for their own premises. "In November 1972, Mrs Hilary Kay noticed that 43 Bannerman Road was up for sale and these premises were bought in 1974. Members of the Congregation did all the interior refurbishment and the Consecration Service was held on 8th February, 1975" - a heartwarming tale.


Now or formerly Jewish.

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