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 1956, and we understand it is still open.

Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website, records that St Andrew's Methodist Church dates from 1956, with 1972 additions. He also mentions that its organ came from Ebenezer Chapel, in Old King Street, which was closed in 1954.

It was built as a replacement for two earlier buildings. Filton's first Methodist Chapel was, according to the Religious Census of 1851, erected in 1833, and this, or a later building, is shown on Old Maps from 1881 as a rectangular building, situated in Church Road, on the opposite side to St Peter's Church. This was replaced in 1927 by a 1920s Gothic building, on the south-west corner of the junction of Gloucester Road and Southmead Road. The latter appears to be still in existence, although now in commercial use, whilst the former has been demolished.

Its registration for marriages was recorded by the following notice in The London Gazette of 8th July 1958 (p.4308):

A Building certified for worship named ST. ANDREWS METHODIST CHURCH, Elm Park, Filton, in the registration district of Sodbury, in the county of Gloucester, was on 2nd July, 1958, registered for solemnising marriages (therein pursuant to section 42 of the Marriage Act, 1949, in place of Methodist Church, Gloucester Road, Filton, now disused. Dated 4th July 1958.


Now or formerly 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.
