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
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.
