From here you can:

We are pleased to announce that we intend to reopen the Chapel for services on the usual 1st and 3rd Sundays at 2:15pm. The first service will be Sunday 20th September.

The Chapel will be open for private prayer and contemplation on Wednesday 9th September between 7pm and 8pm. This will be the final Wednesday evening opening.

We have given considerable thought on how to make the Chapel COVID-19 secure taking into account all the relevant Government guidance on opening places of worship. We have had to produce a risk assessment and there is also a simplified guide on what to expect. These can be found here.

Things will be a little bit different to normal, but hopefully the changes that we have had to make will not detract from the beauty and simplicity of the services that we hold in Rivington Chapel.

We will continue with ‘at-home’ Zoom services until the end of the month excluding the 20th. We are looking into whether we can manage to Zoom the services from the Chapel for those who can’t manage to attend.

As we will not be receiving income from collections whilst the chapel is closed, please consider making a donation by clicking here or on the button below.

For full details of the chapel, service times, rites of passage and contact details please see:

The Chapel Trustees are still looking for a new Treasurer. If you think you may be interested in helping the chapel out in this important role, please send an email to to ask for more details of what is involved.
