Church of England Diocese of Manchester Saint John the Evangelist, Wingates

St John's Wingates

St John’s Wingates holds a Morning Worship Service or Holy Communion each Sunday at 9.30 am.  However, we are currently not holding our Family Services over the Summer.

We are pleased that we are able to relax some of the restrictions at church. We are asking people to continue to wear face masks for the time being but you will be able to join in singing a couple of hymns. Please continue to follow all the guidelines given when you enter church. We are taking things slowly and steadily and hope everybody feels safe. Please let us know if you don't and we will do our very best to help.

Anyone with symptoms or is in a household where a member has symptoms of Covid-19 must not attend.  Also, if you have been asked to self-isolate as part of a contact tracing programme.  Please check the Manchester Diocese website for details.

Regular updates will be given on our parish pew sheet, websites and social media platforms along with other information.

Online Services: We are now having our online services twice a month so don't worry if you aren't able to get to church.  Our pew sheet will still continue to be available on a weekly basis.   Please see "News & Notices" for details of how to access the Sunday services on YouTube.

We are still here as a Christian presence to support our community at this difficult time; please do not hesitate to contact us if you we can offer you help and support at this time.
