Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1855, and we understand it is still open.

There is (or was) an excellent history of "The First 150 Years of Phillip Street Baptist Church, Bedminster, Bristol" on the present Philip Street Chapel website, written in 2007, but (in 2018) this appears to be no longer available. The present Church was opened in 1861, but its congregation was founded in 1855, when Mr George Pine, a local grocer, began meetings in a cottage in Paul Street "to study the Word of God and to pray". He was joined initially by sisters Misses Martha and Sarah Smith, and a Miss Reynolds, and later that year, they began services in the Temperance Hall, which stood on the north-east corner of the junction of New Charlotte Street and East Parade, where the Library is now. "The first church members were Mr & Mrs George Pine, The Misses Martha and Sarah Smith, Mrs Bray, Mrs Fryer, Mr Solomon and Mr Flowers".

Paul Street no longer exists, but Old Maps show it ran from the south end of Mill Lane in a south-easterly direction, to meet Whitehouse Lane just short of its junction with Clarke Street.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
