Lindsey had a vision of an old painting, which was a picture of Ashington. This picture was old dirty, covered in grime and filth. But God's hand was moving over the picture cleaning it, and beautiful colours were appearing from the picture.

Isaiah 54 verses 2-3; Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense. For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities
Mal believes that God is saying "Think bigger" She believes God for an increase. Start to prepare for the Lost to come in. Believe for prodigals to come in.
Isaiah 62 verse 10; Go through, go through the gates, prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway. Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples.
Isaiah 54 verses 2-3; Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your habitations; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.
To Pastor Michael Hedley 22nd May 2012 - From Patricia Bootle
You are my son and I am well pleased with you. Do not fret when men succeed in their ways. You are my workmanship and you will become a polished arrow ready for an appointed time. Just continue and know I am with you.
Do not despise the day of small things
A Poem By Patricia Bootle - 10/12/11
Behold I am coming soon! Are you ready? Is your lamp filled with oil? Are you wearing white garments to cover those soiled. Are your ready?
Is your treasure in heaven and not here on earth, where thieves break in and steal, and it has no worth? Are you ready?
Have you come to the cross, been forgiven of sin, washed in the blood, asked Me to come in. Are you ready?
The trumpet will sound, the archangel will shout. I will come down from heaven, of this do not doubt. Are you ready?

Luke 5 Verse 4: Now when he had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, "launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch!"
1 Kings 18 verse 44
Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said "there is a cloud, as small as a mans hand, rising out of the sea," so he said "Go up, say to Ahab, prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you."
We are commencing a new Parent Toddler Group in the church in Ashington starting on Thursday 5th October This will be held on every Thursday morning apart from School holidays from 10:30 - 12:00.
We had the privelege of hosting the Ashington Churches Together 24 hour Prayer Event which began on the 29th of September from 12:00 noon through till Saturday 30th September 12|:00 noon. The Church was open to anyone to come and pray. We spent most of the day praying for God to transform our community. Wait and watch and see what God does.
We held a MacMillan Coffee Morning on the 29th of September, and raised a sum of £90.00. Thank you to all who supported us and donated various gifts including cakes, soup and many other things. God bless
We held a Summer Fayre Event in the church on Friday 11th of August which was extremely successful, we raised £200 pounds which funded the purchase of some new musical instruments for the church
Word of Life Church held a Summer Praise event on July the 29th. This was a wonderful opportunity to come together and worship our Awesome God in Spirit and Truth.
It was truly a fantastic evening of one and a half hours of praise and worship and following that we had a wonderful time of fellowship over supper of which we would like to thank all who brought something along to share.
We are looking forward to an Autumn Praise Event and then Our Christmas Praise Event. Look out for dates for these events.
Ashington Camera Club held its Annual Exhibition of their photography work in our church during the week from Tuesday 20th till Saturday 24th of June.
This was a really well attended event with prints sold. Many people came into the church who had never been in before. The Camera Club stated that they had been looked after better than ever before and are looking to repeat the event next year.
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.
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.
During the summer we received some wonderful news. Melissa McDonald from the local Co-op walks by our church to get to work and saw our sign for the group. The Guide Post Co-op sponsor a local community group and raise funds each month through the year. They chose our Toddler Group to support during the summer holidays. They placed buckets for collections on their till areas and held a Cake and Tombola stall and are also holding a sponsored 12 mile walk to raise further funds for the group.
Melissa asked what we needed and they then set about raising funds. They have so far donated a range of painting and play-do materials, desks and chairs as well as a host of other play materials for our group.
They are also donating tea, coffee buscuits and a range of other things to the group. We have been truly blessed by Melissa McDonald and all the staff, customers families and friends at Guide Post Co-op for their wonderful efforts in raising funds for our group. A Big Thank You to all at the co-op for their efforts. God Bless.
The picture below is Lindsey and I with Melissa receiving the gifts donated so far.
