About us: Christian Teaching in the North East

The Word of Life Church was established over 6 years ago by husband and wife Pastor Michael and Lindsey Hedley, 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 two years to 5 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 invite you to contact us, attend one of our meetings or even just have a chat about Christianity by using our contact form

 

God Bless

Summer Praise Event

Word of Life Church held a Summer Praise event on July the 29th.  This was a wonderful opportunity to come together and worship our Awesome God in Spirit and Truth.

 

It was truly a fantastic evening of one and a half hours of praise and worship and following that we had a wonderful time of fellowship over supper of which we would like to thank all who brought something along to share.

 

We are looking forward to an Autumn Praise Event and then Our Christmas Praise Event.  Look out for dates for these events.

Camera Club Exhibition

Ashington Camera Club held its Annual Exhibition of their photography work in our church during the week from Tuesday 20th till Saturday 24th of June. 

 

This was a really well attended event with prints sold.  Many people came into the church who had never been in before. The Camera Club stated that they had been looked after better than ever before and are looking to repeat the event next year.  

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.

Mission House

The property adjacent to our church number 73 North Seaton Road which is currently a dwelling house and in need of refurbishment can now be utilised as The Word of Life Mission House.

 

Work will begin soon to refurbish the building ready for it to be used for our outreach programmes.

Parent Toddler Group

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.

 

The picture below is Lindsey and I with Melissa receiving the gifts donated so far.
