Welcome to St. Matthew's


Following a statement by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Sunday worship services and midweek gatherings have been put on hold until further notice due to COVID-19.

However Church has not shut up shop! We will be working hard to provide care, prayer and practical support for everyone in our community who wants it. We will continue to worship in different ways, so that you can join in from home. We will do everything we can to love our neighbour, just as Jesus taught us.

If you want to talk, or need some help, or would like someone to pray for you, call Revd Mark Wade on 01942 215497

You can also email Mark or Dawn if you have any questions.

Also, the latest information and videos will be posted on The Transforming Wigan Website and also on our Hub Facebook page.

Any general enquiries about the church should be made to Mr Jeff McCann (Churchwarden) at 01942 207945.
