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

This Place of Worship was founded in 1929, and we understand it is still open.

This is an eye-catching building - apparently in a mix of styles. It has a north-south aligned nave, built of stone, with shallow transepts, and a large south-facing window, with brown pantile roof. Added to this, and integral with the structure, is a wide "porch", with red pantile roof, giving it the appearance of being added at a later date. Overall, it is described by Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website as "matchstick gothick... the interior of the church - bright with a old organ from the former Milk Street church which was demolished about the time Eden Grove opened". He adds that Brookland Chapel (Lower Ashley Road) was instrumental in establishing this church. The latter was established as Independent Methodist, but joined the United Methodist Church in 1914.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 26th June 1934 (p.4085) records its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named EDEN GROVE METHODIST CHURCH, situated at Eden Grove, Horfield, in the civil parish of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, in the county borough of Bristol, was, on the 18th June, 1934, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Will. IV, c.85. Dated 22nd June 1934.

The Upper Horfield Community Centre is situated next to the Church. It is designed in a complimentary style, but it appears to have been built at a later date.

Denomination

Now or formerly United Methodist.

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