At a Diocesan meeting several years ago one of the speakers described North Nibley as “the place where the villagers get out and do things” and we certainly have got out and done the Chapel!
Over the past few years the love and commitment of local people has breathed new life into this beautiful little building, bursting with its decades of family history and it has once again taken its place alongside the shop, school, St Martin’s Church, village hall, Nibley House and village pub as one of the important elements that make up our wonderful community.
We love to come together to worship God and give thanks for all our blessings: we are always welcoming to new people and a home-made cake is always close to hand. We are proud of our chapel and warmly invite you to learn more about us from this website and Facebook page and we hope to see you soon.
The Chapel works closely with St. Martins, North Nibley’s Anglican Church, sharing services and other events during the year under the banner of "Churches Together".
Christmas, Easter and Remembrance are particular joint activities - the sunrise service on Easter Day is a particular delight for all the early risers! More importantly, they come together in practical ways - sharing pastoral concerns and organising events such as a series of informative evening meetings during Lent, as well as manning a pastoral tent at the Nibley Music Festival.
Key members from both worshipping communities meet regularly for planning and prayer and this strong bond is valued and enjoyed by all concerned. Churches Together provides a vehicle for outreach and pastoral care within the village.
The Chapel has been extensively refurbished and now boasts gas central heating and a kitchen with large gas/electric oven, and seating for 60 seated comfortably (or 100 snugly). Downstairs is one large function room with a kitchen and a smaller, carpeted room. The Chapel is perfect for parties, concerts (it has great acoustics), meetings, courses and a range of other events. It is also licensed for weddings.
It is available for hire @ £10 per hour.
