ABC Wednesday
Zion Congregational Church

The first Zion school and chapel was opened in 1847. It consisted of two storeys with the chapel above the school and was enlarged in 1859.

It was replaced by a large building on Peel Street which opened in April 1899. One hundred years later it too was replaced by the modern new Zion Church which opened in 2000.

For more on its history see the posts at Hyde Cheshire.
