Redland Parish Church (grid reference ST579749) is a Georgian church in the Redland suburb of Bristol, England.

It which was built, probably by John Strahan or William Halfpenny,[1] with plasterwork by Thomas Paty, in 1742 as a private chapel for the local manor house, Redland Court, which is now Redland High School, though it was not consecrated until 1790. It eventually became the parish church when the parish of Redland was separated from Westbury-on-Trym in 1942 and, unusually, has no dedication to a patron saint. It is a Grade I listed building.[2]
