Buckingham Baptist Chapel is a Gothic Revival church in Queens Road, Clifton, Bristol, England.

History

The church was built in 1842 to the designs of Richard Shackleton Pope, It is one of the earliest Baptist chapels built in this style.

The chapel describes itself as 'independent evangelical baptist'. It is a former member of the Baptist Union, which it left on 7 April 1972 (hence 'independent') due to a membership decision based on 'lack of clarity in its teachings on the deity of Christ'.

The church has been without a full-time Pastor since the summer of 2007. The church currently has 5 deacons, with varying roles in the upkeep of the church and its ministries, in addition to a church worker involved mainly in preaching and outreach ministries, particularly with Romanian and Roma communities in Bristol.

The church has several main meetings per week; two Sunday services and a midweek prayer and bible study meeting on Wednesdays. Other meetings include a prayer meeting on the first Friday evening of each month, a ladies meeting every other Tuesday, a men's breakfast bible study held in homes the second Saturday most months and a Romanian-language fellowship meeting every other Sunday afternoon. The church has several outreach ministries such as a Sunday school held during the morning service every week, Tiger Tots- a parent and toddler group held on Fridays during school term-time and a young peoples (YP) group held roughly every other Saturday evening.

The church also holds regular 'Christianity Explored' courses. There are many yearly events run by the church, such as a summer holiday bible club, Christmas carol singing and a Bonfire night party held at the home of some church members.

It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.
