Jesus’ Ministry & Teaching


Our Church is a group of friends whose lives have been changed by meeting Jesus - Come along and make some new friends and discover Jesus for yourself.  Jesus loves us all.  He is Alive!  Come and see.

Sunday morning family services, start at 10:45am.  We are all together in church for the first part of our worship and then, any young people go to their room for their own activities. Parents of toddlers are welcome to go with them if they wish.  Tea, coffee and squash are served after the services.  You are very welcome.

Our Mission

We seek to offer and extend the love of God in Jesus Christ, spiritually, emotionally, supportively and caringly to all people and by doing so to make a positive difference to our neighbourhood and the wider world.

We are loved and cherished by an awesome God who created the Universe,
including our Star, the Sun (shown below).  He chose our insignificant little
Planet, Earth, on which to be born and live among us.  He was tortured, died
and embalmed but on the 3rd day he arose from the dead - His name is Jesus
and he wants to live in our hearts today.  Incredible but true.  Read more . .

Dear Friends

After the Health Secretary’s statement in Parliament today, and the consequent news that Wigan will remain in Tier 3 for at least the next two weeks, the Elders met on Zoom tonight. After much prayer and heart ache we have taken the difficult decision to keep Trinity closed until at least the next Government Review of Tiers. Online Services will continue on Sunday 20th and Christmas Eve/Day. There will be no service on the 27th December but either online or in church worship will begin again on the 3rd January.

We know this will be hard for some and a relief for others that such a decision has been made but ultimately, we wanted the safety of everyone to be our main concern.

While we cannot open the church building there are two events that we hope to do next week.

The first will be a travelling Trinity carol sing on Tuesday evening. We would like people to come and sing to some of our church members and their street. We would travel in cars. If you would like to join us then please let Rev Chris know (we would sing with our household bubbles two metres apart and travel in our own cars). If you would like us to sing in your street or you could suggest a member who would appreciate some Christmas Carols, then again let Rev Chris know or any of the Elders.

On Christmas Eve we will offer a short Outdoor Christingle Service at 3.30pm Christingle bags will be available from 3pm for folk to collect and either stay for the service or take home and light with their families.

Please be assured that you are in our prayers and we wish you all a blessed Christmas.

Yours in Christ

Chris on behalf of the Eldership.

Trinity & Tunley United Reformed Churches

Sunday Service - 24th January 2021

We are sorry that with the high covid infection rates our Minister, Rev Chris Parker, has suspended live worship at Trinity and Tunley.

The service focuses on Commitment for Life (the URC group that works with Christian Aid and Global Action Now.)

You can enjoy this Sunday’s Service by clicking here  It will go live on Saturday at 5.00pm.

Also included in word form is an adapted form of worship for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This can be used on your own but ideally with those in your household and/or bubble. It is also probably best to read in the evening.       Please scroll down>>>

You will need a heart cut out that you can write on and a tealight.  You will also need a Bible handy for the scripture readings.           


If you have missed a Tunley or Trinity YouTube on-line Service, or Favourite Bible Verse the links can be found on our Podcast page.

Later on, after John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee, where he preached God’s Good News.  

“The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”  

One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.  Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed him.  

A little further up the shore Jesus saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat repairing their nets.  He called them at once, and they also followed him, leaving their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired men. Mark 1/14-20 N.L.T

We are putting up another trail – The Muddy Church building blocks Trail.

The aim of the trail is a walk from church, down Leyland Mill Lane, along by the river and up the path to Wigan Lane, finishing at the Cherries Community Garden. At each station is a sheet of activities for walkers to follow using their senses to focus.

Thanks Greg
