We believe the Church 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 before 1883, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This place of worship first came to my attention on Old Maps of 1883-1884 in what later became Durham Road, but at the time was unnamed. Thus it was probably the "Sevier Street Mission Hall" recorded in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902, when Durham Road, as such, did not exist. This was no longer true by the time of publication of Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914, which lists it as "Gospel Mission Hall, Durham Road, and "Undenominational". In the street directory portion, Durham Road is recorded as "no thoroughfare", and the west side, numbers 1, 3, 5, and 7 are occupied by Joseph Norris, George James Fillingham, Thomas Hember, and Albert Henry Porter, a caretaker; opposite which is the Gospel Mission Hall.

The Mission is shown in plan as a rectangular building, on the east side of the street, facing the road, with an extension at the rear. In the present day, its site is occupied by a town-house block, with what appears to be a similar "footprint".


Now or formerly Non-denominational.

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