Welcome to Park Lane Chapel


We have our roots in the Christian faith, but we salute the faithful of all the great World Religions. We welcome new discoveries and thought; we reverence all the good the past has known, but we refuse to live on our capital, for we hold the best is yet to be. Our faith, therefore, is always a continuing adventure.



The Chapel was built in 1697 by a congregation of Worshippers dissenting from the Church of England. As it says in the Chapel History written by the then Minister, George Fox: "While some of the congregation contributed according to their means, others brought their horses and carts to help; and again some laboured with their hands." (Fox 1897). The first Minister, the Rev. James Wood, was ejected, following the  Act of Uniformity in 1662from St Thomas's Church, Ashton.

Dear Park Lane community,

I hope you'll forgive the impersonal email - I just want to remind everyone that this Thursday is our Macmillan coffee morning (as I forgot to do in the weekly email). As well as tea, coffee and snacks, there will be a special talk on PArk Lane's history, by our own Ian Lowe, at 10 am in the chapel as part of the Ashton Festival. There will be a raffle, too!

I hope to see you there if you can make it, it's going to be a very special morning. And hope you & yours are well.

Kind regards,

Bob
