Disley Baptist Church St. Mary’s Church Ring ‘o’ Bells New Methodist Church 26

Places of Worship St Mary the Virgin (Anglican) Disley’s Parish Church stands on a hill overlooking the village centre. The original chantry chapel was built by Sir Piers Legh between 1510 and 1524 and was enlarged during the 19th century to meet the requirements of a growing population. Although enlarged, the church still retains some of the original 16th century building including the tower. The nave and chancel have a magnificently decorated ceiling whilst the windows on the east side are fine examples of medieval glass. The stained glass was purchased by the Legh family at an auction at Sotheby’s in 1926 and was originally from Steinfield Abbey in Bavaria. From the tower, the peal of six bells is rung regularly by the Disley bell ringers. Services are held at St Mary’s every Sunday. St Mary’s Church is open for visitors at weekends: Saturdays 10am-4pm / Sunday 9:30am- 4pm (including services) April-September.

Disley Baptist Church Wycliffe Hall was opened in 1891 and became the meeting place for a group of Christians who had previously met in a cottage on the Crescent. In the past, the building has served as a base for sports clubs, amateur dramatics and for meetings of the Disley Rural District Council in its early years. The Sunday service, which is appropriate for all ages, is at 10:30am. During the week, the hall is used for various activities including the Basement Youth Club, Tots Time, Who Let The Dads Out? and Bible study for adults. For further information contact Revd. James Clarke on 01663 362000 or email Disley Methodist Church From 1805 Methodists worshipped in people’s homes before moving into the Lodge Chapel on Red House Lane. From 1895 this became inadequate and a new church was built on Buxton Road, opening in 1906. This was demolished in 2008 and a new modern church and community hall opened in 2009, to serve the whole village. Morning Service 11:00am every Sunday. Holy Communion, 1st Wednesday in every month at 9:30am. Disley Quakers The Quaker Meeting House, Ring o’ Bells, which still retains some of the original wattle and daub walls, was probably erected in the 17th century and, amongst other things, was once a public house. It became a coffee tavern in 1850 after losing its licence to sell alcohol at the request of the Dowager Lady Newton. It was used for early meetings of Disley Rural District Council. During the mid-20th century the building was acquired by the Religious Society of Friends and converted into a Meeting House. Over the years it has been extensively restored and the Meeting House and its large garden create a very peaceful ambience. It is also used by local organisations including the WEA and the Disley Art Society and is available for letting. Meetings for Worship are held on Sunday mornings at 10:15am and all are welcome. 27
