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 by 1968, but we understand it was closed by 1980.

This place of worship had only a limited life; however I managed to discover its location on Old Maps of 1974. It lay behind #11, one of a row of townhouses on the south side of Richeson Walk, adjacent to an unadopted, and unnamed side road. The site which it probably stood on is at present (2014) lying unused.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 9th January 1968 (p.354) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH, Richeson Walk, Henbury in the registration district of Bristol in the county borough of Bristol, was on 4th January 1968, 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 5th January 1968.

A similar notice, published in the Gazette of 21st March 1980 (p.4475) cancelled the registration.

It was probably begun by the society who began meeting in the Pentecostal Holiness Church, in Ullswater Road, Southmead, which was open by 1962, and remains open in the present day, now known as "Bristol Pentecostal Holiness Church".

Denomination

Now or formerly Pentecostal.

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