Many will have seen the reports in the Blackpool Gazette about the tragic road accident that occurred on Newton Drive on Monday afternoon in which John Nolan sadly lost his life.
John had been a member and Deacon of the Clifton Christian Centre for many years and indeed worked tirelessly during the building works that transformed the former Clifton labour Club into the church building we have today. First and foremost, John was a committed Christian of many years standing and was always keen to share his personal faith, which meant so much to him, with others. He was a member of the Blackpool Gideons and was frequently involved in giving bibles out in schools and placing them in hotels. Through these actions he has touched many lives with the good news of Jesus Christ.
While we are sadden by his passing and grieve with his family, we are assured that he has gone to a far better place.
“He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.” 1 Peter 1 3-4
