Welcome to the website of Abram St John the Evangelist Parish Church. The church is located in the centre of Abram Village, near Wigan. We are a growing and welcoming church with a congregation of all ages. We hold two Holy Communion services each week, Sundays at 9:30am and Wednesdays at 10:00am as well as Family Worship on the second Sunday of each month at 2:00pm. Everyone of all ages is welcome to any of our services and we hope that you can use this website to get all the information you need about our services, activities and events. Come back regularly to see what’s new.
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.
