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 1874, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This Chapel is believed to be one of the meeting places founded by George Müller. It was a rectangular building, with a small porch, facing St Nicholas Road, and on the south-east corner of its junction with Davey Street. The Bristol Town Plans of 1884-1885 was said to have seats for 480, so evidently quite a large Hall.

The book Bristol and Its Environs (1875), published by the British Association, lists five places of worship for Christian Brethren - Bethesda Chapel, Clifton; Bethesda, Great George Street; Salem Chapel, St. Augustine's Place; Unity Chapel, Midland Road, St. Philip's; and the Gospel Hall, Newfoundland Gardens. Newfoundland Gardens was - as far as I can tell - the area at the north-east end of the present Newfoundland Road, formerly allotments, the remnants of which can now, perhaps, be found in St Agnes's Park. The allotments were settled by "squatters", with the bare bones of the present road system north of Newfoundland Road developing around its hovels. Newfoundland Road was then named "Middle Lane", and St Nicholas Road was known as Beehive Lane, where a public house named "The Beehive" was to be found. Middle Lane was subsequently renamed Newfoundland Lane, then more recently, Newfoundland Road.


Now or formerly Christian Brethren.

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