Cemeteries

We believe the Church 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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it is still open.

This is a single storey building - more like a residential bungalow than a place of worship. It is on the north side of Bedminster Road, just west of its junction with Shepton Walk. It is painted white, and has a central double doorway, with an overhanging porch, on either side of which are modern two-light windows. To the right of the window on the right is the legend "The Coming of the Lord draweth nigh, prepare to meet thy God".

The sign attached to the boundary wall between the hall and the road announces this is "Bedminster Road Gospel Hall". There seems to be some confusion in the list of Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010), and on modern OS Maps, as it is recorded by both as "Parson[s] Street Gospel Hall". Perhaps it was once in Parson Street, and has been resited. There is a similar confusion in the Registrar General's list with the Gospel Hall in Langford Road, also with a congregation of Brethren. The building itself is signed "Langford Road Gospel Hall", but it is listed by the Registrar General as "Bedminster Down Gospel Hall".

Denomination

Now or formerly Brethren.

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