Our Newly Refurbished Church Building

The following are photographs of our new church building starting with some photographs of how it was to what it is now.  To God be the Glory!

Installation of Deacons Service

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:

Christian Retreat

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.


Pleas see our Mission House Christian Retreat Section on this website, or visit our Mission House Retreat page on facebook.

Wedding Service

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.

Harvest Supper

We held an Ashington Churches Together Harvest Supper in the Church on the 15th of October where £73.00 was raised for the local Wansbeck Food Bank.


The evening began with prayer, Psalm 65 verses 6 - 11 which talks about God supplying everything that we need in order that we can have a harvest


A local folk group called the "Canny Lads" were the entertainment for the night, along with a wonderful variety of food, and drinks.  The evening closed with all 53 of us singing How Great is our God, and Rev Michael closing in prayer.  Phoyographs of the event are below:

Verse for Today

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?


The answer to the question posed by the Apostle Paul here is that even though we are battered by the world system with trials, with problems seemingly of great magnitude.  Nothing absolutely nothing shall separate us from Christ Jesus.  He is with us through the midst of our troubles.  So never let anyone tell you that your prayer life or your Christian walk isnt right because you've got a few problems.  Jesus still and always will love you.

Word of Life Mission House

Our Mission House, of 73 North Seaton Road, the annexe to the church has now been completed.


We are using the building for a variety of things such as a 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.


While staying here visitors can use it to be simply a place of rest, meditation and prayer, or take part in the church programmes, or take part in a specially designed retreat bespoke programme.


We will also be using the venue for Debt Management, helping those in need, as well as music 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.  The cost for staying here is £30.00 per night.  Donations are also welcome.

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. All donations from this monthly event go to Arab World Ministries Yemen


Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday and forever


Hebrews 13:8


This is not just breaking news, it is the news from yesterday, today and tomorrow and guess what?  It is forever.  Hallelujah!!!!!
