Welcome to Word Of Life WRU Church in the North East
The Word of Life Church North East was founded in 2010 in Ashington, by Pastor Michael and Lindsey Hedley along with 4 other founding members.
Word of Life Church North East meet every Sunday in our church building on North Seaton Road, Ashington from 10:30am till 12:30.
Word of Life Church in the North East are a Bible believing Church, who want to make an active impact in our community in Ashington in the North East of England to the Glory of God, by fulfilling the great commission which Jesus gave us to preach the Gospel, make disciples and baptise new believers.
Word of Life Church in the North East's purpose is to love, encourage and accept each other for who we are in Christ and to help each other on a daily basis.
Word of Life Church's services are based on praising God through lively and contemplative worship, prayer, teaching and sharing fellowship. We also meet during the week for prayer meetings, Bible study and informal fellowship.
We work with a range of organisations including Care homes for the elderly as well as other churches in the North East and in particular the Northumberland area.
Word of Life Church in the North East in Ashington now offers you the opportunity to get to know more about us and if you are searching for God look at the following section.
We are all sinners. The Bible tells us that we are all sinners and have all fallen short of the Glory of God. Whether we have told a lie, stolen anything, been angry with someone, or even thought about committing adultery, we have sinned. When we stand before God as we all must do we will have to give an account of our sins. And we will have no excuse before Him.
Imagine if you were in court and had been accused and found guilty of a crime you had committed, and you were waiting for the sentence to be announced, then someone came and says to the judge, I will pay his or her fine, or spend the time in prison for them, how do you think you would feel?
Well thats what Jesus did for us. God is a just judge and he has to punish sin, so what he did was to send Jesus to earth to pay our fine for our sins. Jesus died on a cross 2000 years ago so that we could be forgiven for our sins, what an amazing deal!
That is called amazing grace. If you want to be forgiven for your sins and really desire to live a new life on this earth as well as spending eternity with God, then we appeal to you to get right with God now!
No matter how bad you think you are, there is no sin that God will not forgive. We all have a past, we all need a friend and we all want to spend our future with the one who loves us the most and that is God. He loves us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins that we might have everlasting life. Speak to God now and say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ
I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life. I ask you for forgiveness. I repent of all my sins. Thank you for dying on the cross for me to set me free from my sins. Please come into my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit today and be with me forever.
Dear Lord I praise You and exalt You. I thank you that I am poor in spirit and needy. That need is to desire You more. Thank you Lord that You think of me and that You are my help and my deliverer. I know that when I cry to You, You do not delay in answering me, because I know that if I ask for anything of the Father in the name of Jesus, you will bring it to pass. O Gracious Lord let Your will be done in me and through me. I pray these things in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
1 John 2:4 AMP "Whoever says I know Him (I perceive, recognise, understand, and am acquainted with Him) but fails to keep and obey His commandments (teachings) is a liar, and the Truth (of the Gospel) is not in him.
Please pray for Israel, thanking God that Jerusalem is now formally the capital of Israel, but also pray that the warmongers and trouble makers of Hamas and Hezbollah stop causing the trouble that they are.
Please pray for PEACE in Syria , Yemen and Iraq, that all the warring parties will lay aside their differences and come as one to the table to negotiate a peace settlement.
Please continue to pray for the leaders of our nation, that they may bring justice to the poor, help to the needy and equity for all. Bring an end to greed and let the love of Jesus Christ be made manifest in Parliament.
Please continue to pray for our church, for workers and resources that we might use to bring the Gospel of the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of Ashington.
Pray for the WRU Little Chapel in Bedworth to continue serving in their community and for a greater sense of unity and purpose.
Please pray that a lost generation who have had no access to bibles in schools or Christian assemblies would come to know the real Gospel and real truthful Christianity.
Pray for Jewish people all over the world that they would know their Messiah
Please pray for the the leaders of this church, that we will continue to be Salt and Light in this community.

We were very blessed this month that on the 6th of May we had a visit from the current Wesleyan Reform Union President, Phil Hartshorn with his lovely wife Sue. They stayed with us in the cottage next door to the church. We enjoyed worshipping and fellowshipping with them, both at Word of Life and Guide Post Churches. The message that Phil brought was wonderful. We also gave them a guided tour of our favourite place; the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
The two days that we spent together were encouraging and uplifting and we thank God for Phil and Sue, and the wonderful time that we all shared together.
We are almost nearing completion of our Mission House, of 73 North Seaton Road, the building adjacent to the Church. We are excited to announce that this annexe to the building will be utilised for many community outreach programmes.
It will also be a place of Christian retreat, where specific programmes can be tailored for each group of people staying. Examples of the type of programmes we will be delivering, will be Leading Worship, Prayer, and a wide range of other Christian Programmes.
We will also be using the venue for Healthy Eating and living healthily on a budget, as well as music lessons, photography lessons; job searching and basic IT programmes.
We are very excited about this development, and if you require any further information, please contact us either by email or by telephone on 07879253072 or 07854 820012
We held a Nigerian Evening in the Church on Saturday the 17th of February. A wonderful night of Nigerian Worship, Culture, food and fellowship was had by all, led by the Akinsola Family. Pictures below.
Our Friday Diner at church is on the last Friday of every month from 12:00 till 2:00pm. Soup and sandwiches and a range of other hot meals will be available for each of the coming months. This is an outreach for those who may be lonely, or who maybe are just in need of company. There is no charge for the food but donations are welcomed.
The ordination service of Rev Michael Hedley took place on Saturday the 25th of November 2017. It was led by Phil Hartshorn the WRU President of 2017/18, with input from Rev Ian Fall chair of the ministerial committee. It was a wonderful day for all concerned. A very special privelege that this service was delivered in our home church and not as it is usually done at conference. Thanks to all who participated and a heartfelt thanks for the wonderful gifts that you have given us both
Reverend Michael & Lindsey Hedley.
Once again this year it was a great priviledge for our rapidly growing Church Family to witness yet another baptism. Gordon gave his life to Jesus in July earlier this year and he went through the waters of baptism at Bedlington Trinity Church. A fantastic time was had by all and we truly rejoice that his life is now heading in a new Holy Spirit filled direction.
We held a Baptism Service on Saturday May 27th at Bedlington Trinity Church for Caroline Taylor who joined our fellowship earlier this year. We had a wonderful time in God's presence and the service went so well. Pictures of the event are below this text.
Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday and forever
This is not just breaking news, it is the news from yesterday, today and tomorrow and guess what? It is forever. Hallelujah!!!!!
