East Park Baptist Church occupies a plot on
the southern side of Holderness Road, midway between Southcoates Avenue
and Lodge Street in the Summergang district to the east of central Hull.
Its date of foundation is not known. Elsewhere on the long Holderness Road
there was also Hedon Road Seamen's Bethel, registered by the Mariners'
Friend Society in 1895-1903, when it was replaced by Holderness Road
Seamen's Bethel (1903 to at least 1939).
Also on Holderness Road was the Pentecostal Mission
in 1908-10, replaced by the Gospel Mission Room in 1910-11, renamed
Hull City Mission Room in 1911-20. The Jehovah's Witnesses had
halls in 1916-19, 1940-41, 1941-46, and 1958. The Christian Assembly Hall
was used in 1926-30. The Spiritualist Temple of Truth was used in
1933-39 and 1947. The Holiness Meeting Room was used in 1936-54.
The Salvation Army Holderness Road was used in 1942-54.
Portobello Methodist Church is a modest red brick
building on the southern side of Holderness Road, opposite Hurley Close in the
Sutton Ings district of eastern Hull, moving in the direction of the River
Humber from Summergang. The church was built by the Primitive Methodists in
1906, with 610 sittings. It was designed by Gelder and Kitchen, and was built
at a cost of £4,500. Unlike a great many Primitive Methodist churches, it
survived the Methodist union in 1932.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
is on the northern side of Holderness Road, just east of Hurley Close in
Sutton Ings. After meeting in existing premises, certainly by 1870-1872
when they were noted by the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales, the
Latter-Day Saints built their own church here in 1934. This building was
subsequently replaced by the present well-regarded one in 1956. By 2010
there was another meeting on Springfield Way.
Kingston Wesley Methodist Church & Community
Centre is on the southern side of Holderness Road, opposite Ellesmere
Avenue in Sutton Ings. The first Kingston Chapel was in Witham, on
the eastern edge of central Hull. Founded in 1841, it was the largest
Methodist chapel in the town. It was demolished about 1912 and some of the
fittings were moved to the present chapel in Sutton Ings, which was
registered in 1913 and renamed Kingston Wesley after the lost chapel.
St Michael & All Angels Sutton Ings is
at the south-west corner of Holderness Road and Marfleet Lane. A
temporary church was dedicated in 1913. The present church was
consecrated and gained a district from the parishes of Sutton and
Drypool. Also in the district was St Saviour Stoneferry Road.
A temporary building was dedicated in 1898 and the permanent church
consecrated in 1903. The parish was combined with St Mark in 1957 and
the church demolished in 1981.
St Bede's Catholic Church Bilton Grange
stands inside the junction of Staveley Road and Hopewell Road. The
church was registered in 1953. Recusancy seems to have been weak in
Hull in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, apparently
confined to a handful of merchant families, but following the opening
of St Charles Borromeo in 1829 three more churches were subsequently
built in the late nineteenth century, and a further ten in the
St George Marfleet stands well back from the
eastern side of Marfleet Lane, just below the junction with Staverley Road
in Marfleet, part of the Sutton Trust Estate of Carden Avenue. This is
on the northern bank of the Humber. The dual-purpose church was dedicated
in 1938 as a chapel of ease to Marfleet's parish church of St Giles, one of
three such chapels. By 2010 the church had been closed down, although Sunday
services were being held in an adjoining building.
Preston Road Methodist Church stands at the
north-east corner of Preston Road and Bilton Grove in Marfleet. A church
was registered for this site in 1934, but it seems that may have been a
temporary building. The present church was registered in 1937 and offered
300 sittings. It was designed by Gelder and Kitchen, and was built at a
cost of £5,500. By 2008 it appeared to have been closed down, although
nothing official regarding its fate can be found.
