Cotham Church (grid reference ST584739) is a Gothic Revival style church in Cotham, Bristol, England.


Cotham Church was originally built in 1842 and completed in 1843 by William Butterfield. Once built it became Highbury Congregational chapel.[1]

The churches apse, tower, south transept and school were added in 1863 by Edward William Godwin.[1] The large stone low in the enclosing wall along Cotham Road is part of Bewell's Cross,[2] which marked the boundary of the city until the nineteenth century.[1]

In 1975, the Church of England had purchased it and has been known as the Cotham Parish Church.[1][3][4]

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[5]
