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.

Ladies Fellowship Afternoon Tea

The ladies at Bethel meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 7.30. Following the summer break, we met to sing, pray and listen to a message from our Minister, Chris, followed by a delicious ‘afternoon ‘ tea. Of course, we don’t eat like this every week! Come and join us, we would love to welcome any ladies who would like to come along.


Ron Machin

We said goodbye to Ron and Barbara Machin on Sunday 1st September 2019, as they move on to a new phase of their lives in Maghull. Ron has been our church minister for over 20 years and leaves us with some wonderful memories. Ron chose six of his favourite hymns and three psalms, all included in the service led by our student minister, Pauline Smith. Ron and Barbara were presented with gifts which included a beautiful framed picture of the church, lovingly painted by Bob Aspey. They will both be greatly missed by all of us here at Bethel. “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord …..” (Jeremiah 29:11)

  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.”
