Open day at church
A CHURCH in Kingswood will open its doors as part of South Gloucestershire Council's Heritage Open Days.
Kingswood United Church will present some of Kingswood's long and varied history from the Kings Forest to present day, featuring words, pictures, artefacts and floral displays.
You can also find out about some of the names at the Moravian burial ground such as Boulton, Cambridge, Golding, Haskins, Jarrett and Stone. Could these be some of your ancestors?
The Moravian Church, which dates from 1745, and Whitfield United Reformed Church, which dates from 1739, combined in 1992 to make Kingswood United Church.
Members of the church may also be able to help anyone who is trying to trace their family tree.
The event takes place on Saturday September 8 from 10am-4pm and on Sunday September 9 from 2-4pm at Regent Street and Moravian Road.
Entry is free and refreshments will be available.
