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 1962, and we understand it is still open.

Redcliffe Methodist Church was built as a replacement for the congregations of Redcliffe Crescent Chapel, and Langton Street Chapel, both of them destroyed in WWII. As such, it has a long history, as the roots of Langton Street Chapel can be traced back to John Wesley's time, firstly in a building in Guinea Street, then in 1828-31 to Langton Street. The latter appears to have been rebuilt in the early 1950s, but since then Langton Street and its surrounds have been cleared. Redcliffe Crescent Chapel was never rebuilt, but the name may survive as "Redcliffe Crescent Memorial Methodist Church" in Wingfield Road (Lower Knowle), which opened in 1956.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 22nd May 1962 (p.4140) records the registration of the new building for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named REDCLIFFE METHODIST CHURCH, Prewett Street, in the registration district of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, was on 16th May 1962, 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 17th May 1962.


Now or formerly Methodist.

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