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.

During the summer we received some wonderful news. Melissa McDonald from the local Co-op walks by our church to get to work and saw our sign for the group. The Guide Post Co-op sponsor a local community group and raise funds each month through the year. They chose our Toddler Group to support during the summer holidays. They placed buckets for collections on their till areas and held a Cake and Tombola stall and are also holding a sponsored 12 mile walk to raise further funds for the group.
Melissa asked what we needed and they then set about raising funds. They have so far donated a range of painting and play-do materials, desks and chairs as well as a host of other play materials for our group.
They are also donating tea, coffee buscuits and a range of other things to the group. We have been truly blessed by Melissa McDonald and all the staff, customers families and friends at Guide Post Co-op for their wonderful efforts in raising funds for our group. A Big Thank You to all at the co-op for their efforts. God Bless.
