The church is located in the heart of Abram Village in Wigan and is part of The Chapelfields Team. We are a growing, welcoming and inclusive Anglican Church and the hub of our local community. We offer a variety of opportunities to gather in worship and fellowship, from traditional style services held each week on Sunday at 9:30am and Wednesday at 9:45am, Messy Church, especially for children and families, on the second Sunday of every month (except August) at 2:00pm, our toddler church, Church Mice, which is held every Monday in term time at 9:15am, plus drop in café, luncheon and seasonal services/courses where we can come together and explore, grow and celebrate being a disciple of Jesus. We also host Open Table Wigan on the fourth Sunday of every month at 6:30pm offering a fully inclusive, nurturing and welcoming space.

The current building was consecrated in 1937 to replace the previous building which had stood on the site since 1838.  We are fully accessible by wheelchair with level entrance at the front of the building and ramp at the back along with disabled toilet and space for wheelchairs and prams within the pews.  Large print information is available for services. We also have baby change facilities and a children's corner with books and soft toys. 

This website gives a glimpse into who we are but we would love to meet you so why not come along and say hello.
