OUR VISION

We are a warm evangelical community, and our hearts are united to see God's Kingdom grow in our village and beyond. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven and we proclaim the truth of God's Word in the Holy Bible. Our hope and vision is to build a loving inclusive family church, for all ages.

On Mina's last Sunday with us, Aug. 28 2016,
we bade her farewell, as she returned to Japan, after a year as a volunteer at the Great House.

VISITORS TO CHAPEL RENDEZVOUS

CHAPEL RENDEZVOUS

As well as Sunday Services, the Chapel hosts a weekly get-together for coffee, tea, cakes and chat. This popular event on Thursday mornings is a happy friendly time for the whole village. Another event has been "Kington Langley's Got Talent", staged twice now, a light-hearted evening of musical entertainment, with comic turns and a chance for some of the children to perform.

HISTORY

By the mid-19th Century there was a community of Dissenters in the area, and in 1740 John Cennick, the hymnwriter, a friend of the Wesleys, preached on the Common. Various people registered their houses in turn as meeting houses, including Richard Dovey in 1742, John Gough in 1823 and James Piniger in 1834.
On the 17th September 1835 the Union Chapel was registered as a Dissenters' Meeting House, for a united congregation of Independents, Baptists and Moravians.
With its small graveyard and its Manse in Ashes Lane, it has maintained its unaffiliated status.
