Revelation is a centrally located drop-in based in Blackpool. The centre hosts weekly activities, courses and community services. Out of Revelation, we aim to support ministry in the centre of Blackpool and provide a place for people to take part in front-line mission work.
Revelation is a former photography studio at the heart of Blackpool that Refreshment UK acquired in 2017. After a period of renovation, the centre was opened and used by Teen Challenge UK. In 2018, a new programme of events launched to offer a range of services, drop-ins and bible studies to help people find hope on the high street.
Revelation is located in the centre of Blackpool on a walk-through between Abingdon Street and Topping Street. The location is just a short walk from Blackpool North train station and close to bus routes that stop on Talbot Road and Abingdon Street. Parking is available at various locations nearby.
The vision for Revelation came in 2009 when Simon and Laura were living in Worcester. After spending time walking aorund the streets, there was a realisation that the church was not open on the high street, and that we needed to be available for people. The long-term vision for the centre is to offer a permanent place on the high street to find hope and help.
