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. We meet every Sunday in our church building at 69 - 71 North Seaton Road, Ashington, Northumberland NE63 0AG; from 10:30am till 12:30.
On July 1st 2022 Senior Pastors Michael and Lindsey Hedley took up a new role as the National Spiritual Coordinators of the Wesleyan Reform Union of Churches Denomination. This involves them travelling around the 62 Churches of the Union, bringing encouragement and spiritual help to Churches. Because of this new role we now have a leadership team and Senior Pastors Michael and Lindsey, who still oversee the work, will also fellowship here.
Word of Life Church in the North East are a Bible Believing Church, who are seeking 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, as well as reaching out to others to share the love of Christ with them.
Word of Life Church's services are based on praising God through lively and contemplative worship, prayer, Sound Biblical 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 The Northumberland Sanctuary, (Refugee Service), Northumberland Social Services, Bridges Community Project and are active with Churches Together in Ashington 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, We pray that anyone visiting this website will be blessed as they read of You in all that we do. We pray that those seeking You will find you not just through this website but through Your Word and the testimonies they may have heard before arriving here. We pray that those who visit here will experience Your love, joy and peace in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
