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 1952, but we understand it was closed after 1952.

This appears to have been a short-lived place of meeting for worship, with its location appearing only (to my knowledge) on Old Maps of 1952. It was situated on the south side of Terrell Street, a short distance west from its junction with Upper Maudlin Street, and labelled "Elim Church". Earlier Maps show a building named "Terrill House" on the plot. On the opposite side of the street stood the former New Jerusalem Chapel, closed in 1899, which by 1952 had become a Tennis Court.

This part of Terrell Street no longer exists, as the area has been absorbed by the Bristol Royal Infirmary complex. In 1952, the Hospital buildings are shown to have been further to the north, and on both sides of Upper Maudlin Street. The buildings on the east side were named the King Edward VII Memorial Infirmary, and on the west side, the Royal Infirmary.

Possibly when Elim Church closed, its congregation moved to the present Elim Church, in Jamaica Street, Stokes Croft, though I have been unable to find any documentary evidence of this.


Now or formerly Elim 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.
