Welcome to the website of Abram St John the Evangelist Parish Church. The church is located in the heart of Abram Village in Wigan. 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 9:30am, 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. This website gives a glimpse into who we are but we would love to meet you so why not come along and say hello.
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.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. We collect donations of non-perishable food and donate these items to local foodbanks to help provide emergency food to feed people in crisis.
We are a Fairtrade Church. This means we use Fairtrade Tea and coffee and other products where we can and we actively promote and encourage Fairtrade. Where you see products marked with the Fairtrade symbol this guarantees that the people who actually grew the crops are paid a fair, living wage for them.
