The Chapel's Background Story

Davenport Chapel is situated near the Congleton to Holmes Chapel Road. You can't miss it    it's the one with the huge car park and the lovely graveyard!

A small country chapel with humble beginnings, the Venables family from Lightwood Farm, just across the road, were the driving force behind its building in 1834.

Over the years the chapel has been modernised to include central heating, fitted carpets, a very useful kitchen bar, new curtains and new doors and a toilet suitable for the disabled.

Although the congregation is not the largest  to be found in the circuit, all the members are very enthusiastic and willing to donate their various skills to the well-being of the chapel.

There is one service each Sunday at 10.45 a.m. plus several popular 'specials' throughout the year, including a very decorative Harvest Festival. The Autumn Fayre always proves to be a very good social event and fund-raiser, for which we rely heavily on the support of friends from other chapels and churches.

In a world of confusion and disarray, people are discovering the peace and warmth of a simple country chapel (especially one with a huge car park and a lovely graveyard!)
