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.
