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."
On Saturday 18th of May Ayanfe Gdabebo, Haydn Bell and Sharon Delaney all went through the waters of baptism. The event was held at Bedlington Trinity Church, followed by a celebration tea at Word of Life WRU Church.
We had a wonderful time in the presence of God, where three new Christians went through the waters of baptism. Haydn shared his testimony which had many of us in tears. Pictures of the event will be uploaded soon.
On the 6th of July, we will be holding our annual Summer Praise Event. This is a celebration of God's glory and grace, and an opportunity to praise and worship God through song. The event once again will be a combination of modern worship songs as well as some more traditional chorusses.
All are welcome to attend and enjoy a special evening giving all the glory to God through out praise.
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:

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.
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.
