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."
Our new Women of Action group commenced in January of this year. Aiming for the women of the church to build each other up spiritually and to reachout into the community around us to ensure that the Gospel message is heard and understood. The group is facilitated by Sue Farr and the meetings are held monthly, generally on the last friday of the month with a few exceptions.
We are holding a Good Friday Service at our Church commencing from 11:00am till 1:00pm, this is for the free churches in Ashington. Hot drinks will be served prior to the start of the meeting. Worship and the Word will then be delivered.
We held a Nigerian Evening in the Church on Saturday the 17th of February. A wonderful night of Nigerian Worship, Culture, food and fellowship was had by all, led by the Akinsola Family. Pictures below.
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.
The Lent Services this year will be our own in the church for six weeks starting from Thursday the 15th 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday and forever
