The Ivy Church


Members of the Ivy Pentecostal Church worshipping, Ashley Hill, Bristol.The congregation watches the singers.

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.
