St. Aidan's Church is a member of the Parish of Wigan South. Services and events are co-ordinated by a team of experienced volunteers who feel privileged to be called by God to maintain worship and to reach out to our community in so many ways. We have close links with the school and are passionate about the community and bringing people together to spread the word of God. Services requiring an ordained minister are facilitated by our Wigan South clergy.
We currently have a short Sunday Service of Morning Prayer each week at 9.30am with prayers, bible readings and a reflection, and Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the Month. There will be no singing, in keeping with government guidance. The number of places available are limited to enable full social distancing, so it is essential to pre-book by ringing 01744 894738 from 9.30am on the Monday leading up to the service.
Our Sta's4all meetings for young families, which normally meet at St. Aidan's School, is currently virtual, posted on the 3rd Sunday of the month, and can be found on out Facebook page Facebook.com/BillingeStAidansChurch
When the current situation allows we would hope to resume 2 services each Sunday:
one each week at 10.30 am: 1st Sunday - Holy Communion, 2nd Sunday- Family Service, 3rd Sunday - Morning Prayer and 4th Sunday a contemporary All-Age or a Baptism Service );
a service at 9am on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (Holy Communion and Morning Worship), and a traditional Book of Common Prayer service at 6.30 pm Evening Prayer on the 1st and Holy Communion on the 3rd Sundays of the month.
On a Wednesday at 10am we would normally share Holy Communion Services across our Hub. This service is not taking place at present. The pattern would be at Holy Trinity, Downall Green on the 1st Wednesday, St. Aidan's on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and at Oasis, Bryn at 9.30am on the 4th Wednesday. The 3rd Wednesday alternates each month.
The head of South Hub is Rev. Jeremy Thomas (Tel 01942 727275) .
