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 1962, and we understand it is still open.

Premises referred to as "SOUTHMEAD PENTECOSTAL CHURCH", in Ullswater Road, were first registered for marriages on 10th July 1962, according to a cancellation notice in The London Gazette of 5th May 1966 (p.5408). Then later the same year, on 8th December 1966 (p.13323), the following notice appeared:

A Building certified for worship named BRISTOL PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH, Ullswater Road, Southmead, in the registration district of Bristol, in the County Borough of Bristol, was on 1st December 1966, 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 5th December 1966.

From this, I have concluded that it was a meeting of the same congregation, for which new premises were acquired, or perhaps refurbishment of the existing premises took place, coupled with a change of name.

The "Bristol Pentecostal Holiness Church" is a Registered Charity, No.235472, first registered in 1959. Their activities are described on the official Charities Commission website ( as holding Religious Services, and providing Religious Education, also running Groups for the Community surrounding the Church. "These include Sunday School, Youth Groups, Women's and Men's Groups and a Free Coffee Morning".


Now or formerly Pentecostal.

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