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 1948, and we understand it is still open.

Counterslip Baptist Church was founded originally in Bath Street in the Temple area of Bristol City, moving to Victoria Street in 1878, following the purchase of its original building by the firm of Messrs. Finzel & Sons, sugar refiners. The move from the City Centre became essential after the Church was bombed during WWII, and the congregation moved to premises in Wells Road.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 23rd November 1948 (p.6146) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named COUNTERSLIP BAPTIST CHURCH situated at Wells Road in Bristol registration district in the county borough of Bristol was on the 16th November 1948, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 and 7 Will. IV. c.85, sec. 19, being substituted for the Building named Counterslip Baptist Chapel situated at Victoria Street, now disused. Dated the 19th November 1948.

This building was, perhaps, only temporary, as on 19th August 1955 (p.4756) the Gazette subsequently recorded the substitution of "COUNTERSLIP CHURCH HALL, Wells Road ... in place of Counterslip Baptist Church, Wells Road, now disused". And finally, on 4th July 1958, the present building was registered.

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.
