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 in 1959, and we understand it is still open.

This building was first opened as a Quaker Mission Hall in 1880. It appears from the outside to be quite small, but in 1881, it was capable of accomodating at least 150, when the Quaker congregation is said to have numbered 60 for morning, and 150 for evening service.

In the same year a congregation of 80 Christadelphians were recorded in Goddard's assembly rooms. Four years later, in 1885 they were meeting in a hall in Aldate Square, but by 1889 they had moved to a hall in King Street. The latter was apparently still in use in 1923, when Kelly's Directory of that year records a Christadelphian Hall, in King Street. In the early 1940s however they had moved to a room in Northgate Mansions, in lower Northgate Street. The present Hall in Sherborne Street was purchased from the Quakers in 1959.

Additional Note: Northgate Mansions does still exist; but King Street is now Kings Walk, an arcade with the usual "High Street" shops, and (St) Aldate Square is now part of Kings Square.

Now or formerly Christadelphian.

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