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 held our Annual Summer Praise Event on Saturday 21st July. A wonderful night for all of worship praise food and fellowship. Thank you for all who supported this event. A church full of people worshipping our awesome God.
Ephesians 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
Good morning. The verse of Scripture above simply tells us how to live our lives. As His dear children we are to imitate His essence. Jesus is God revealed so we are to model Him. How? Love; forgive; graceful; Merciful; obedient; Caring; gentle; Patient; Peaceful; Joyful and powerful. When we choose to live like Jesus we will walk in His power and reflect His glory! Hallelujah! Have a Christ like day. God bless.
We are holding our first Alpha Course, commencing on the 5th of September starting at 6 o clock. We are delighted to be able to commence this course as part of our outreach. If you know anyone who would like to come, first ask them and bring them along with you. The sessions will begin with food and then discussions. The first session will be "Is there more to life than this.". In this session we will be discussing, what does Christianity have to do with life today? What Am I doing on earth? What is the point of life and where am I heading?
Lindsey and I had the pleasure of attending our 4th WRU conference at Swanick in Derbyshire. We had a wonderful time meeting with great friends from throughout the churches of the union.
We were privileged to lead worship on the Monday evening segment, leading to Colin Braithwaite's induction as the new president.
There were some excellent sessions at conference including the business, and teaching. Colin's address was about what does Church look like, and it was very revealing and challenging.
Lindsey and I were accepted onto the General Committee and were also selected for the Overseas Missions and Home Missions sub-committees, respectively. We are so looking forward to being involved in these committees and weare excited to learn of what has bee achieved in the past and also what we can bring in the future.
The times of worship were wonderful, prayer groups were powerful, and fellowship wonderful too. We thank Almighty God, that we are part of this excellent Union of Churches.
We are delighted to announce the visit of the New President of the Wesleyan Reform Union to our church on the 22nd of July 2018. Colin Braithwaite who retired as the General Secretary of the Union two years ago is the new Union President. We look forward to his visit, and I am sure we will all welcome him and what he will bring to share with us.
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.

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.
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 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.
Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday and forever
This is not just breaking news, it is the news from yesterday, today and tomorrow and guess what? It is forever. Hallelujah!!!!!
