We believe the Church did 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 before 1952, but we understand it was closed before 1991.

St Stephen's Hall is situated adjacent to, and to the north of St Stephen's Church. It is shown for the first time on Old Maps of 1952-1954, at a time when the area north of Greystoke Avenue, including Wigton Crescent and Glencoyne Square, was newly laid out. Seemingly it would have stood in splendid isolation at the time, as the only other buildings south of Wigton Crescent at the time were the New Brunswick Congregational Church, and a Community Hall, east of the Church Hall.

As such, it predates the present church, but may well have served the former St Stephen's building, with which it coexisted. The latter stood in Shetland Road, on a plot which is now occupied by a group of town houses. This is shown on earlier Maps of 1935-1938 as a Mission Church, and then later, in 1952-1954 as "St Stephen's Church".

The Hall is now the home of the St Stephens Community Work Project. Established in 1991, it operates in partnership with St Stephen's Church to assist local people in developing new skills and expertise. [Source: Social Economy Bristol]

In addition, a group named "Enabling Christian Fellowship" also meet here, for which see the "Churches in the Community" section of The Noise website.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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