Word of Life began in 1940 when Jack Wyrtzen saw the need to reach out to young people with the Gospel through a radio programme called “Word of Life Hour”.

Today, Word of Life is impacting local churches, families and young people in over 70 countries through various means consistent with the Holy Scriptures to build and strengthen the Church of Jesus Christ.

Word of Life United Kingdom

In 1946, Jack Wyrtzen made the first of many trips to England, Scotland and Wales holding evangelistic events, and as a result many people came to know Christ as their personal Saviour.

The first residential staff arrived in the UK in 1980 and began impacting families and young people. Thus WORD OF LIFE United Kingdom (WOLUK) was born.

We are part of something bigger.

Word of Life United Kingdom is part of the Word of Life International Organization, and you can read more about it at the link below.
