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 after 1902, and we understand it is still open.

Crofts End Church website tells us that it is part of the Bristol City Mission Society, and (in 2014) serving the St George area of Bristol for over 110 years; and that it was founded and built by local people. Evidently this means some time between 1902 and 1914 in Crofts End Road, since it is listed in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914, but not in the equivalent for 1902.

The Bristol City Mission Society was formed in 1826. Its purpose, as described in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914, was "to communicate religious knowledge to those who are living in the neglect of religion, by the employment of paid and gratuitous agents, in visiting the poor and afflicted, preaching the Gospel, circulating the scriptures and religious tracts, the establishment of schools, mothers' meetings, &c."

The following notice in The London Gazette of 17th July 1934 (p.4613) records its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BRISTOL CITY MISSION HALL, situated at Crofts End Road, St. George, in the civil parish of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, in the county borough of Bristol, was, on the 11th July, 1934, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Will. IV, c.85. Dated 12th July 1934.

Since 2014, when I first prepared this account, a Building Project for a new Church building was in the offing, as their original building had become unsound. As of a July 2018 StreetView drive-past, I can report that it is well on the way to completion, and looking very good.

Denomination

Now or formerly City Mission.

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

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
