The Ivy Church, plaque

The Ivy Church, plaque


Plaque about the bell at the Ivy Pentecostal Church, Ashley Hill, Bristol. The plaque reads:

This bell rang from its place in the tower throughout the nineteenth century. After decades of silence it was moved to its new location and was rung again at the opening of the enlarged and remodelled Ivy Church. 24th August 1985.

In the 19th century, a runaway slave called Henry Parker came to Bristol. He became a lay preacher at the Ivy Church. Some of his descendants still live in the Bristol area.

The congregation of the Ivy Church today consists of black and white members, who meet and worship together.

With thanks to the Ivy Church for giving their permission.
