The new project for the Wesleyan Reform Union's Overseas Mission Department will this year be to raise £9,000 for a new Cystoscope machine for the Good News Hospital in Mandritsara in Madagscar. All funds that the Word of Life Church raise this year from our Diner's will go towards that fund. If you would like to donate to this worthy cause please contact Pastor Lindsey and she will assist you in making your donation. God Bless.
It is with great pleasure that Pastor Lindsey Hedley took over the reins of the Secretary for the Wesleyan Reform Union Overseas Mission Committe. The baton was handed over by the outgoing secretary Jan Shepherd at Conference in June. Lindsey is looking forward to the challenge ahead as she looks to take the committee team forward in Christian Mission both abroad and at home.
On the 6th of July, we held our annual Summer Praise Event. It was an evening of worshiping and praising our awesome God. Many new songs were rooled out on the night as well as some old favourites, but the presence of God was awesome. We want much much more of that. If you missed it, we will be having another one soon.
On Saturday 18th of May Ayanfe Gdabebo, Haydn Bell and Sharon Delaney all went through the waters of baptism. The event was held at Bedlington Trinity Church, followed by a celebration tea at Word of Life WRU Church.
We had a wonderful time in the presence of God, where three new Christians went through the waters of baptism. Haydn shared his testimony which had many of us in tears. Pictures of the event will be uploaded soon.
A wonderful service was held in the presence of God on Sunday 17th March 2019 to install three deacons into the church.
Graham and Valerie Baldwin and (Toks) Olaronke Ashiru Gbadebo were installed as new church deacons. They agreed to serve as deacons in the church providing assistance to the ruling elders in pastoral visits, maintenance of the church building and serving in general so that the church can properly function.
Photographs of the service are displayed below:
Our Mission House next door to the Church is available for bookings to stay for 1 to 30 nights. The house is used as a Christain retreat, and we can offer a wide range of support programmes during your stay with us.
From Bible Teaching - various topics - to Worship Leading - to dance as a form of worship, prayer and a range of other activities.
We are based on the wonderful panoramic Northumberland coastline which is literally 5 minutes drive away, but also have access to the beautiful Northumbrian Countryside and Cheviot hills which are only 30 minutes drive.

Our first registered wedding service took place in the church on October the 12th 2018. The Couple Ian Sidney Wales married Linda Airey. Linda has attended our coffee mornings for over two years, and Sid has known Michael for many years.
The couple were pronounced man and wife after a beautiful service delivered by Rev Michael Hedley, the signing of the registars was overseen by Lindsey who is the appointed person for wedding services for the church. The wedding was attended by family and friends and they then had a function at the White House Club following the service. We wish them all of God's blessing and favour upon their marriage. Photographs of the service are 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. All donations from this monthly event go to the Good News Hospital in Mandritsara in Madagascar for a new Cystoscope machine.
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!!!!!
