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 1932, and we understand it is still open.

St George Baptist Church is situated on the north-west corner of the junction of Summerhill Road with Cherry Orchard Lane. It was opened in 1932, superseding an earlier building on Clouds Hill Road. The two buildings are admirably described on Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 9th September 1932 (p.5779) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named ST. GEORGE BAPTIST CHURCH, situated at Summerhill Road, in the civil parish of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, in the county borough of Bristol, was, on the 6th September, 1932, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Will. IV, c.85, being substituted for a Building named Baptist Chapel, situate at Clouds Hill Road, St. George, now disused. Dated 7th September 1932.

Sadly during recent years, declining congregations, and expensive maintenance has resulted in the church having to "decamp", and in 2012, planning permission was sought, and granted, to create 11 apartments, whilst retaining the Church Hall. So meetings have continued, but now in the Church Hall, behind the original building. In addition, a group named "Rise and Shine" also meet there, according to the "Churches in the Community" section of The Noise website listing for Easton.

See also the article "St George congregation seek new home as church roof is targeted by lead thieves" dated 27th September 2008 on the Bristol Post website. For details of the Planning Application (Ref: 11/05333/F), see the Bristol City Council website.

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.
