Welcome to Park Lane Chapel
Sat. 21st MAY Our Spring Fayre from 10 am – 1 pm.
This is our next big fund raising event which is also an enjoyable social occasion. So come and have a good look around the stalls and treat yourself and also join in our raffle; enjoy a cuppa and a bacon barmcake or a home made cake. This is also the chance to look round our beautiful Chapel which was opened in 1697 and has seen continuous worship ever since
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.
