Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1994, and we understand it is still open.

Christ Church was known originally as "Cotham Chapel". It was built in 1877 as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, and rebuilt in 1897 after it was burnt down. It was renamed Christ Church after it became a United Fellowship in 1966, after absorbing the former congregations of Cotham Grove Baptist Church, and Arley Church when they closed; but was closed itself in 1989.

Thereafter it was converted into office use for a time, but was pressed into ecclesiastical use once more in or before 1994. The following notice in The London Gazette of 24th March 1994 (p.4564) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named CHRIST CHURCH COTHAM, Redland Road, Cotham, Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol in the Non-Metropolitan County of Avon, was on 17th March 1994, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act 1949 as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act 1958. Dated 21st March 1994.

In the present day, it is the meeting place for "Cornerstone Church Bristol" with, according to Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010), a congregation belonging to the Cornerstone Ministries.

Denomination

Now or formerly Cornerstone Ministries.

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