Zion Chapel, Chester is in Grosvenor Park Road, Chester, Cheshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.[1]

The chapel was built in 1879–80 to a design by John Douglas. It was originally a Baptist chapel. It is built in red brick with stone dressings and the roof is of red-brown clay tiles. It consists of an undercroft, a church and ancillary rooms. The west end faces the road and has corner turrets.[1]

In 1980 a congregation called the Zion Tabernacle moved into the former chapel. In 2000 it styled itself Protestant Evangelical.[2]
