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 about 1957, but we understand it was closed by 1987, and the premises are now in secular use.

My evidence for the existence of this place of worship derives from the following notice in The London Gazette of 7th December 1987 p.15027):

The Registrar General, being satisfied that PRINCE'S HALL (Bristol Evangelistic Centre), Prince Street, Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol in the Non-Metropolitan County of Avon and [...] have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified in accordance with the Places of Worship Registration Act, 1855 has cancelled the record of their certifications. Dated 27th November 1987.

Recent (2013) Maps show that "Prince's Hall" is on the north-east corner of the junction of Prince Street with Royal Oak Avenue. A comparison with Old Maps of the 1880s show that the building was then the Seamen's Mission and Institute. It is known to have been damaged, and partly demolished, during WWII bombing; but it would seem that the front, facing Prince Street has been rebuilt, leading (presumably) to a new lease of life as "Prince's Hall".

The Bristol Evangelistic Centre was a Charity, established by a Deed and Constitution dated 24th May 1957. Its objectives as stated on the Charities Commission website are given as "for such Religious Purposes in the British Isles or in any other Countries as the Trustees shall think fit". Its original registration was on 12th November 1969, and it was removed from the register on 28th June 2005, the given reason for removal being an amalgamation, but it doesn't say with whom.

Denomination

Now or formerly Evangelical.

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