New Prayer Room

During 2020, Pastor Michael submitted a bid for funding to the Allchurches Trust, we were successful in that bid and received £10,800 of funding.  The money was to be used to replace the old spiral staircase, that was virtually unusable and replace it with a new easy access staircase, that allows our upper rooms to be utilised.  One room is hired our by Phil and Catherine Drabble as a arts and crafts room.  The second room has been divided into two sections.  One for storage with proper storage racking systems and the other half is a new prayer room.  The work was completed over August through till December of 2020, and we will be able to start using it from June 2021, when covid restrictions are lifted.  The room will also be used as a Sunday School for our children.


We look forward to being able to use the new room when restrictions are lifted.  Below are a selection of photographs and a video of the new space.

Church Re-Opening

The Word of Life Church are open for Sunday Services following the latest government guidelines to ensure we are Covid Compliant, with the wearing of face masks, hand sanitisers in place and social distancing measures in place to protect everyone attending the services. 


From May 17th we will be opening our Coffee Mornings and Diners.  Prayer Meetings and Bible Study will continue on Zoom Wednesday Mornings from 10:30am for Prayer and the Bible Study will be on Thursday evenings from 7:00pm.


We look forward to June 21st when all of our services can once again be in the Church building and we can meet freely without restrictions.


God bless.  Pastors Michael and Lindsey Hedley

Funding Success

We are pleased to announce that a recent funding bid that Pastor Michael submitted to All churches Trust has been successful.  We have been awarded £25,500 to deliver English as an Additional Language courses free of charge, deliver healthy living courses combining exercise, healthy eating, and help with debt management, as well as basic computer literacy aimed at people who have been isolated due to having no access to technology to help them stay in touch with others.  These courses will begin in Spring of 2021, and further details of how to get involved will be outlined in the New Year.


This comes on top of the funding sucessfully gained from All churches Trust, for the development of our upper rooms in the church to create a prayer room, better storage facilities and an arts and crafts room that CRE8 are using.  This has involved putting in a new staircase to allow better and easier access, a partition wall in the storage room, as well as painting and decorating the area.  This has been hampered somewhat in the development by the Pandemic, but is now nearing completion and should be ready to start using in the New Year and when restrictions become more widely lifted.


Praise God for all that He is doing.

Toks' Book Launch

It was our very great privilege to attend the launch of Toks (Olaronke Ashiru Gbadebo's) book "Don't Take the Poison", on Saturday 19th September. 


We are promoting her book on our website to support her in this work and so the following is a description of the book and there are two links for you to purchase it, through Amazon and Google.


*Don't Take that Poison* is a call for anyone who desires to live a life that pleases God, and who is committed to enjoying the abundant life available in Christ. 


The book looks deeply into the issue of offences and how it impacts our lives and our ability to be fruitful. 


It provides deep insights into the purpose of relationships and different ways offences can wreak havoc. 


You will get answers to questions like:


a) What causes offences:


b) The signs of an offended heart:


c) Effects of harbouring offences:


d) The path of victory


It provides compelling answers to deep heart issues especially those that have been wounded through lifes circumstances and are struggling to let go of the wounds incurred.


The book will help to escape the poison offences brings into our lives.

Church Services Update

Every Sunday we are continuing to live stream our Sunday services from 10:30 am 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, 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 they will also be uploaded onto our Word of Life Whatsapp page as well.

Overseas Mission Project for 2020-21

The project for the Wesleyan Reform Union's Overseas Mission Department will this year be to continue to raise funds for the Good News Hospital in Mandritsara in Madagscar.  They are building a new operating theatre and 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.
