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 1932, and we understand it is still open.

To get a flavour of a visitor's experience of "Victoria Brotherhood & Sisterhood Chapel", you may wish to read a "Mystery Worshipper's" impressions on the on the Ship of Fools website. When I first prepared this account in 2014, the visitor had attended a Christmas Carol service in 2012, and more recently, a Carol Concert on 21st December 2017.

The building is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) with an address of "Belwood Terrace, Hillburn Road", and a congregation belonging to the "Brotherhood Movement". This may be slightly misleading, as there appear to be several organisations with similar titles. I would presume however the Chapel is associated with the Registered Charity #207686, "Brotherhood and Sisterhood Movement", with headquarters in Penge, and incorporated 24th July 1919. According to the "Ship of Fools" 2014 account, the organisation was founded earlier than this, in 1875, and the Chapel in Bristol was built in 1932. On Old Maps of 1918, "Hillburn Road" was called "Swan Lane", and was still to be developed. I have found no reference to "Belwood Terrace"; perhaps it was the name of the presently unmade road between Hillburn Road and Bellevue Road. It was named "Victoria" after the Victoria Methodist Chapel in Bell Hill Road.


Now or formerly Brotherhood & Sisterhood Movement.

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