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 before 1878, and we understand it is still open.

Old Maps show this labelled as a Methodist (New Connexion) Chapel, and by 1917, a United Methodist Church. The next series of Maps, dated 1938, label it as "Methodist Church", the same as the Methodist Chapel in Chapel Street (now demolished), so seemingly they both survived the merger of Wesleyan, Primitive Methodists and United Methodists to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain in 1932, at least for a time.

In the present day, the congregation worshipping here are probably the Evangelical Christians described as meeting at "The New Tupton Christian Centre" in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010), so it is probable it no longer belongs to the Methodist Church. A Building certified for worship as NEW TUPTON CHRISTIAN CENTRE, Queen Victoria Road, New Tupton, Chesterfield, was registered in The London Gazette on 31st August 2000 (p.9678) as "registered for solemnising marriages therein", the announcement dated 24th August 2000, indicating the time the sale, or merger took place.

There is a photograph of it as New Tupton Christian Centre on the Geograph website. The New Tupton Evangelical Church appears to be its most recent title, as shown on a board attached to the Church, captured on Google StreetView of 2012.


Now or formerly New Connexion/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.
