Now that the lockdown measures are being relaxed the Word of Life WRU Church are pleased to announce that Phil and Catherine Drabble have been given funding through Awards For All for a Creativity in the Community Project.
This project will be based in our Church building, and will explore creative writing, photography, upcycling of furniture and a range of other creative subjects. This project will be on Wednesday Evening and Thursday Morning and is open to all who would like to explore learning new skills in the arts and crafts environment.
If you would like to take part in this please contact us at the Church or Phil and Catherine
Every Sunday we are having a live stream service from 11:00am till 12:00. This is being streamed through facebook live on our facebook Word of Life WRU Church page. We have secured a live stream licence, and a music reproduction licence which allows us to broadcast songs of various Christian artists that are named within the database of CCLI. THis means we will be singing our praises to God together albeit remotely, sharing communion together and Pastor Michael will continue to share his sermons live through facebook live. If you miss that live feed then they will appear on our church facebook page, and will later be uploaded onto our website here. They will also be uploaded onto our Word of Life Whatsapp page as well.
Every evening around 6pm, we will also deliver a short message and a prayer on facebook which is pre-recorded, however we may go live with those too. Pastor Michael will also record the sermons he has already prepared for the continuing exposition of the Book of Revelation and these will appear as pre-recorded sermons on our sermon page here.
We are looking at ways in which we can continue to support not just our congregation but the wider public as well and more information will be posted at a later date about our plans.
This is only temporary and one day very soon we will all meet together again to rejoice together, pray and hear the Word of God together. We look forward to that glorious day. For now Lindsey and I would like to thank you for your encouragement, your love and support throughout these difficult days.
Be assured. Jesus is still Lord and God is and always will be in sovereign control of His creation. God bless and lots of love from Pastors Michael and Lindsey Hedley
It is with great pleasure to announce that Pastor Lindsey Hedley has completed her Theology Training Course. Her certificate was presented by Pastor Michael at our Sunday Service. Lindsey has gained so much from doing this course and has been truly blessed by completing it, gaining a great understanding of our awesome God and His Word.
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.
