Our fantastic range of Christian greetings and encouragement cards, which are complete with relevant scriptures are now available in church and on this website. The cards can be made to order for any occasion, for anyone and with any Christian message. All cards are attractively priced for best value.
Plus we will soon be able to offer our worship CD's either on line or if you prefer through the post, on this website.
Pastor Michael's sermons are also available to download each week.
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!
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.
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:
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.
We are holding our first Alpha Course, commencing on the 5th of September starting at 6 o clock. We are delighted to be able to commence this course as part of our outreach. If you know anyone who would like to come, first ask them and bring them along with you. The sessions will begin with food and then discussions. The first session will be "Is there more to life than this.". In this session we will be discussing, what does Christianity have to do with life today? What Am I doing on earth? What is the point of life and where am I heading?
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.
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
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.
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!!!!!
