Welcome to Bethel Independent Methodist Church, Wigan. We are a community church in Wigan, renowned for its wonderful singing, where you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome. Midweek activities include Ladies Fellowship, Choir, House Groups and Fellowship meetings. 

We have two services on a Sunday; the morning service at 10:45am and the evening service at 6:00pm. We also have a Communion Service on the 1st Sunday in the month at the evening service and the 3rd Sunday in the month at the morning service.

Bethel At Home 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been taking part in our Sunday services in our homes. Here are all of our selfies!



Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, the church building at Bethel remains closed. However, WE are the church and we are keeping in touch throughout this difficult time. We are watching closely for the latest guidance about when we can reopen and what changes need to be made to ensure this is done safely. Please check here for updates.

In the meantime, our weekly service is posted on our Facebook page.

If you need any help at all, with anything, please message us through this website or Facebook.


Above all, remember that “God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

Communion Service – Sunday 3rd May 2020

Storehouse Project

On Sunday 15th December 2019, as a church, we collected food and toiletries for the emergency hampers needed at the Storehouse Project. Very kindly, Janice and Brian were able to take the groceries to Family Church, Billinge, where they were gratefully received.


Irene’s 80th Birthday 

On Sunday 15th December we were invited by Irene Watkins to share in her 80th birthday celebrations. Dennis led morning worship, after which they provided a very delicious meal for us all. We very much enjoyed our extended time of fellowship together as we tucked into a roast dinner followed by apple pie and cream, mince pies and coffee.  It is lovely to have Irene and Dennis back with us at Bethel and we thank them for their kindness and generosity.

  3. Ann’s friend, former colleague from her teaching days, had a serious fall at the end of last year which meant a spell in hospital and then Alexander Court Care Home because she was unable to look after herself. Val went to the Care Home with some flowers from Bethel.
    Ann has just received a letter from her friend who says,” The flowers were lovely and admired by all, especially the care workers at Alexander Court. The lady who brought them was also lovely. Her visit helped me turn a corner and I began to think how lucky I was.”
