New life for an old chapel – Zion Bristol

A former Methodist chapel in Bedminster Down, Bristol, has been transformed into a social hub with a café, art classes and children’s play mornings.

The chapel, now known as Zion Bristol, was closed six years ago when the declining congregation could no longer afford the upkeep. At risk of becoming derelict, the building was saved through a social enterprise project that has successfully preserved features such as the pulpit, benches and stained glass windows while providing a valuable resource in a deprived area.
