About us: Christian Teaching in the North East

The Word of Life Church was established over 7 years ago by husband and wife Pastors; Rev Michael and Lindsey Hedley, as well as Milly and Sid Little and Sue Farr.

 

Michael had a vision from God to plant a new church in Ashington and from this a dozen wells of salvation would be opened in the south east Northumberland area.  This vision was supported by over a dozen Christians who after a prayer retreat confirmed this was in God's plan and purpose. The Church was to be one of Christian Teaching for both new and mature Christians in the North East of England and elsewhere.

 

After much prayer and with no advertising we started the church on 27th October 2010.  We held weekly Sunday evening meetings from that point as well as Prayer groups and Bible studies and have seen the church grow in 7 years to 10 times its original size.

 

We have seen many answers to prayers as well as new Christians coming to salvation in Christ. 

 

The Word of Life Church will continue to grow in God's timing and according to His plan and purpose and our focus will remain on preaching the gospel and making disciples in ways which impact our community around us.

 

We prayerfully seek God for all that we do and are excited about this coming months in which we will be seeking to impact the community around us while proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

We are normal ordinary people from a wide range of  backgrounds, who love Ashington,  its people and the surrounding area and seek to ensure that we honestly present the truth of the Bible in its fulness and represent Jesus Christ on this earth as His people.

 

We joined with the Wesleyan Reform Union in February 2015 and now have a permanent base for Church Services on North Seaton Road in Ashington.  We have developed a Word of God based teaching community within the Church as we believe that the Word of God is central to all that we do.

Presidential Visit

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. 

Word of Life Mission House

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

Nigerian Evening

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.

 

Friday Diner

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.

Pastor Michael's Ordination Service

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

Gordon Brown's Baptism

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.

Baptism Service

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.
