We believe the Chapel 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 1966, but we understand it was closed by 2001.

The location of Bolsover's Pentecostal Church may be seen on Old maps of 1970 onwards, on the north-east corner of the junction of Cotton Street with the High Street - where the Jehovah's Witnesses' Kingdom Hall now stands. It was a long narrow building with a small extension to the rear, apparently standing on a larger plot than that occupied by Kingdom Hall today, and set back further from the road.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 11th February 1966 (p.1581) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named PENTECOSTAL CHURCH, High Street, Bolsover, in the registration district of Chesterfield, in the county of Derby, was on 4th February 1966, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 7th February 1966.

Its closure, as "Pentecostal Church, High Street, Bolsover", was recorded in the Gazette of 9th November 2002 (p.13157) in a list of buildings which are no longer used by the congregations on whose behalf they were registered".

The circumstances leading to its replacement by Kingdom Hall may be traced on the Bolsover District Council website, in a planning application of 24th April 2001 [01/00220/FUL] for "demolition of existing building and erection of a single storey place of worship", which in an associated entry is described as "Jehovahs Witness".

The planning application refers to the replacement as "single storey", suggesting, perhaps that the original building had more than one storey? I am not aware of any photographs which would let us know.


Now or formerly 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.

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 Bolsover, 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.
