Let the Broken Hearted Rejoice!!
Hi, my name is Lindsey Hedley. I am a born again Christian. I was born into the world on the 3rd of March 1960. I was born again on 12th March 2006. Only through Gods love, comfort, grace and strength can I walk through my life.
Jesus is my friend, wow how awesome is that! I am married to my wonderful husband Michael. I have been blessed with four great sons and 3 wonderful grand-children. Jesus is my redeemer my very precious help in time of need.
Let the broken hearted rejoice! My heart was broken, shattered and totally destroyed after failed marriages and relationships. I was broken and I thought beyond repair but God knew better. I have a friend who used to come every week to my house for her hair done and I always felt that she had a peace about her; I knew she attended an evangelical church and I asked if I could go. I had attended Sunday school when I was young and always believed in God, but now I was in a dark place, I was living in the world searching for the void to be filled with people and possessions. I had reached a point in my life where I really didn’t want to live any more, I was desperate.
It was at her church that I found Jesus. I realised that He died on the cross for our sins. I am a new creation in Christ, he has healed my broken heart, it is bigger and
stronger than before, he comforts me and covers me with Grace and I trust in Him with everything in my life.
God has restored me from within, he has changed me he has made me whole and I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me, it is only through God I now have a wonderful loving husband. God gave me the desires of my heart and I trusted him completely. God was my matchmaker and knew what I needed and how right He is! I am truly blessed he continues to bless me each day.
I have been given a new life and it is wonderful and anybody can be renewed, ask Jesus into your life today, seek him in your heart, He can do the impossible . I now know God has had his hand ON my life, he has blessed me with my children, but I now know he is IN my life. I have a personal relationship with him through Jesus. I have peace and joy and love overflowing and it could be you! Please follow the prayer on the home page of this website to let him into your life. He is awesome!!!
Much love Lindsey xx
The new project for the Wesleyan Reform Union's Overseas Mission Department will this year be to raise £9,000 for a new Cystoscope machine for the Good News Hospital in Mandritsara in Madagscar. 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.
It is with great pleasure that Pastor Lindsey Hedley took over the reins of the Secretary for the Wesleyan Reform Union Overseas Mission Committe. The baton was handed over by the outgoing secretary Jan Shepherd at Conference in June. Lindsey is looking forward to the challenge ahead as she looks to take the committee team forward in Christian Mission both abroad and at home.
On the 6th of July, we held our annual Summer Praise Event. It was an evening of worshiping and praising our awesome God. Many new songs were rooled out on the night as well as some old favourites, but the presence of God was awesome. We want much much more of that. If you missed it, we will be having another one soon.
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.
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 Mission House next door to the Church is available for bookings to stay for 1 to 30 nights. The house is used as a Christain retreat, and we can offer a wide range of support programmes during your stay with us.
From Bible Teaching - various topics - to Worship Leading - to dance as a form of worship, prayer and a range of other activities.
We are based on the wonderful panoramic Northumberland coastline which is literally 5 minutes drive away, but also have access to the beautiful Northumbrian Countryside and Cheviot hills which are only 30 minutes drive.

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.
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. All donations from this monthly event go to the Good News Hospital in Mandritsara in Madagascar for a new Cystoscope machine.
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!!!!!
