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 after 1988, and we understand it is still open.

This is a long, modern building, with 8 windows facing the road, and a wide porch, approached by a paved drive.

A place of worship in Booth Street was in existence by 1952, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 29th September 1952 (p.4615) indicates:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BETHESDA HALL situated at Booth Street, Ripley in Belper registration district in the county of Derby was on the 25th August 1952, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to Section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 27th August 1952.

A subsequent notice in the Gazette on 21st January 1975 (p.911) was published for a building certified for worship named ASSEMBLIES OF GOD CHURCH, Booth Street which was registered for marriages on 9th January 1975 in place of a building of the same address now disused. This was rescinded in a notice published on 13th July 1988 (p.8015).

A comparison with Old Maps suggests Bethesda Hall, and the Assemblies of God Church were on the same site as the present Elim Pentecostal Church.


Now or formerly Elim Pentecostal.

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


This Church is located at OS grid reference SK4003150654. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Ripley, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

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.
