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 1662, from St Thomas's Church, Ashton.
