Return to Homepage ->


The chapel is situated in a small village in the hills above Laxey village. The village has been a place of Christian worship and prayer for over 1300years, starting with a Keill(chapel) in 699AD with a monk and continuing today in the Methodist chapel opened in 1857. The chapel has a view of the hills, looking out onto old mining buildings and up to Snaefell Mountain. Agneash has long been a “prayed in place” - what the Celts called a “Thin Place” where you can easily feel the presence of God and find peace.

Standard opening times Open daily 10am-4pm. Prayer meeting every Saturday 8.30 - 9.00 am followed by breakfast; Sunday service 2.30 - 3.30 pm followed by refreshments.
