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.

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 . .

Reopening of Trinity United Reformed Church, Wigan on Sunday 6th September 2020

Dear Friends,


We have now completed the risk assessment for returning to worship and look forward to welcoming you back to Trinity from the 6th September. We aim to hold short 30 minute services for the foreseeable future beginning on Sunday 6th September at 11.15am. We will hold the services in a Covid-19 secure manner. To help us do this we offer the following and ask you to help us by taking note of all the advice we suggest and abiding by the Guidelines we give after advice from the Government and the URC.

Before Worship

 We will mark some areas off limits and the floor will be marked to keep social distance. The building will be cleaned and sanitised before services.

 We have removed all items such as hymnbooks and bibles from the chairs to prevent contamination.

 We would ask that if you have symptoms of coronavirus or other illnesses that you stay at home.

 We would ask that you wear a face covering as you come to church. We will have a limited supply of masks for those who forget their own coverings.

As You Arrive.

 Please stay distanced as you come into the church grounds. Some markers will be provided to help you with this but we cannot cover all areas.

 Please wait to enter Church until the porch is clear.

 Please use the hand sanitiser provided

 Please give contact details to the Elder taking your names. This will be kept for 21 days for track and trace means.

 When you enter the sanctuary please fill the chairs from the front as directed.

 Individuals will have to sit apart. Members of the same Households though may sit together as will those in social bubbles.  PLEASE SEE SEATING SUGGESTION

 We will not be collecting for the Brick but your donations of money to them can be made over the phone.

During Worship

 We will have readings, prayers, talks and music but, unfortunately,  we will not be able to sing or take communion.

 We will not be able to have separate activities for children, so we ask that families sit together for the services

 If you feel unwell during worship, please indicate that you need to move and we will help people to get appropriate help.

 The toilets will be open but only one person at a time will be allowed along the corridor and this will be indicated by vacancy signs in the foyer. Anti-bacterial wipes will be provided to wipe the toilet and sink areas.

 The collection will not be taken as part of worship but we will leave a collecting box near the door for your offertory.

 Please feel free to bring your own bottled drinks if you wish as no refreshments will be served.

After Worship

 We ask that you leave from the back chairs and so on. If you wish to talk to people please go into the peace garden and keep your distance, allowing those that want to leave to use the path safely.

 The church will be cleaned and sanitised before being closed.

With love in God’s name                                 Rev Chris and the Elders.

Trinity & Tunley United Reformed Churches

Sunday 25th October 2020


We are sorry that with the increase in covid infection rates our Minister Rev Chris Parker has suspended live worship at Trinity and Tunley and instead he has recorded YouTube on-line services which you may join in with by clicking here

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

Hi all.

Last year at Harvest we gave out pouches for you to fill with money as a gift for the church. We were going to ask for those back at Easter but obviously we couldn't because of the pandemic. If you still would like to return your pouches then we would be happy to recieve them at a Sunday morning service. There will be a plate next to the offertory box for you to do that.

Please do not feel you have to support us in this way but we know some people have asked us about this.

As we are in restricted socialalisation I have decided to restart the daily devotions at church. They will now be displayed in the window next to the front door at Trinity URC, Wigan.

Shalom Chris

The Pharisees try and trap Jesus with questions

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again. One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Then, surrounded by the Pharisees, Jesus asked them a question: “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They replied, “He is the son of David.” Jesus responded, “Then why does David, speaking under the inspiration of the Spirit, call the Messiah ‘my Lord’? For David said, ‘The said to my Lord, Sit in the place of honour at my right hand until I humble your enemies beneath your feet.’ Since David called the Messiah ‘my Lord,’ how can the Messiah be his son?” No one could answer him. And after that, no one dared to ask him any more questions.  Matthew 22/34-46 N.L.T
