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 in 1955, but we understand it was closed in 2001, and the premises are now in secular use.

St Michael's owes its origins to the growth of the parish of St Barnabas, as more new housing was built on its southern boundary. During 1955 a daughter church was built to serve the Tuffley Court estate and in December 1955 the building was dedicated to St Michael, after the deconsecration of the old St Michael at The Cross in the city centre.

It has been described as "a Reema system building of pebble-dashed brick (which) includes vestries and porches.". It was built as a temporary mission hall, but has nevertheless served the Tuffley Court estate for 46 years as a church. It ceased to be used for worship following a Service of Thanksgiving on 28th July 2001, and now serves as an active Community Centre.

Now or formerly Church of England.

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

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former St Michael's Church (now 'Court Community Association') is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
