Hatherlow Church traces its history back to 1645, services then being held in Chadkirk Chapel, and it was the oldest Congragational body in Cheshire. The first independent minister at Chadkirk was Gamallel Jones, who settled there in 1688 or 1689. In the latter year the "Meeting Place" at Chadkirk was certified as a licensed place for religious worship shortly after the passing of the Toleration act. When they were finally ejected in the reign of Queen Anne, a new building was erected in 1706 on the site now occupied by Hatherlow Sunday School.

The present church was opened as Hatherlow Congregational Church in 1845, although the burial ground surrounding it goes back to 1793.
