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 before 1992, and we understand it is still open.

The Wesleyan Holiness Church is on the south-east corner of the junction of City Road with Brigstocke Road. The building was (probably) built for the United Christian Jewish Church about 1956. It was labelled as "Emmanuel Holiness Church (Jewish)" on Old Maps of 1971, and similarly as "Emmanuel Holiness Church, City Road", when a notice in The London Gazette of 15th February 1988 (p.1764) cancelled its registration for marriages.

The following notice in Gazette of 21st September 1992 (p.15793) records a similar registration for its current use:

A Building certified for worship named THE WESLEYAN HOLINESS CHURCH, excluding basement, 70-72 City Road, in the registration district of Bristol in the metropolitan district of Bristol, was on 10th September 1992, 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 14th September 1992.

To quote from the Church's website: "the Wesleyan Holiness Church is an Evangelical, Protestant denomination... part of a holiness movement now operating in 80 countries of the world with over 5000 churches, 16 of which are in the UK, formed in 1968 resulting from the merger between several like-minded groups dating back as far as 1843. It has its roots in John Wesley's Methodism".


Now or formerly Christians.

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