Cemeteries

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 1902, but we understand it was closed in 1959.

Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 records two addresses for the Bristol City Mission in Great Ann Street. Neither are marked explicitly on Old Maps, but according to the order they are listed in the street directory section, they were both on the south side of the street. The "Bristol City Mission Society" (possibly their head office) was recorded between #8 and #16, to the west of the junction with Pinnel Street, whilst the "Bristol City Mission Chapel" was listed after #54, immediately before the junction with Wade Street.

The former building may be what is marked on Old Maps as a Hall, and in Kelly's Directory of 1902 as "The Baptist Gospel Mission Hall". The latter was perhaps the same building marked on the Bristol Town Plans of 1885 as a Church of England Mission Chapel (recorded elsewhere in this database as a Mission of St Jude), and in 1902 as "City Mission Chapel".

The following notice in The London Gazette of 5th February 1929 (p.905) recorded the registration of one of them for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BRISTOL CITY MISSION HALL, situated at Great Ann-street, St. Jude, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, was, on the 30th January, 1929, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 31st January 1929.

It was replaced in 1959 by a new building in Champion Square, a short distance away; and the buildings, and the area surrounding them, have now been demolished, and the area redeveloped.

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.
