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!


Praise Worship Exercise Class

 A Praise, Worship, Exercise Class will be held over the next 4 weeks from Saturday January 13th from 10:30: till 12:30.  A light lunch will be provided.

Valerie Baldwin will be leading this class and many who attended the last one were really blessed.  So don't miss out!

Friday Diner

A new Friday Diner will be held in church on the last Friday every month starting from January the 26th 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.  It is intended that 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.

Lent Services

The Lent Services this year will be our own in the church for six weeks starting from Wednesday the 14th of February, from 6 till 7.  We will be focussing upon the Beattitudes for the six week period.  Rev Michael Hedley and Pastor Ayodeji Akinsola will be sharing the teaching over these six weeks.

Women Of Action

1st Meeting is on Friday 26th of January at 6:30pm till 9pm.  Watch this space for further details.

Pastor Michael's Ordination Service

The ordination service of Rev Michael Hedley took place on Saturday the 25th of November 2017.  It was led by Phil Hartshorn the WRU President of 2017/18, with input from Rev Ian Fall chair of the ministerial committee.  It was a wonderful day for all concerned.  A very special privelege that this service was delivered in our home church and not as it is usually done at conference.  Thanks to all who participated and a heartfelt thanks for the wonderful gifts that you have given us both


Reverend Michael & Lindsey Hedley.

Deji Akinsola

We welcome back once again our great friend and brother in Christ Pastor Ayodeji Akimsola as he went back to Nigeria to minister at his home Church, the Charis Family International Church in Basorun.  He has now returned to the UK to our church and it is lovely to see him again.  We are planning a Nigerian worship, food and fellowship night on the 17th of February.

Gordon Brown's Baptism

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.

Toddler Group

We have commenced a new Parent Toddler Group in the church in Ashington starting on Thursday 5th October  The Tiny Rainbows Toddler Group is held on every Thursday morning apart from School holidays from 10:30 - 12:00.



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.


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!!!!!
