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 1927, but we understand it was closed by 1985, and the premises are now in secular use.

On first glance, the former Bedminster Tabernacle could be mistaken for a private house. It is of red brick, with a central porch, above which is a band of stonework into which is carved the legend "Bedminster Tabernacle Hall". Above this is a modern three-light window. The sides are of five bays, with again, modern windows.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 27th May 1927 (p.3470) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BEDMINSTER TABERNACLE, situated at Palmyra-road, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, was, on the 23rd May, 1927, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 24th May 1927.

The list of Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) records it as having a congregation of "Christians not otherwise designated"; however it would appear to have been associated originally with East Street Baptist Church, for which see A Century of Service: The Story of East Street Baptist Church Incorporating the Bedminster Tabernacle, by George Carpenter (1984).

No corresponding record of its closure has been found, but it is now the home of AMA Business Systems Ltd; and their website says they have been in business since 1985.

Denomination

Now or formerly Christians.

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