The Refresh Centre

Where will I live?

All students on the course will live in community at the Refresh Centre in Blackpool. a fourteen-bedroom property in the southern part of the town. The centre is located near to Blackpool South Train Station, on major bus routes and just a ten-minute walk away from the beach and tram stops.


The centre has ten single, two twin and one double bedrooms across three floors for guests. There is a dining room, training room and prayer room on the ground floor. All rooms are named after missionaries who advanced the kingdom of God significantly. Each bedroom has a bed, wardrobe and washing facilities, and each floor has a shared bathroom with a shower.


Each student will have a private room in the centre, and access to all shared spaces. There is free Wi-Fi available throughout and students can use a washer and dryer, managed on a weekly rota. Students will be expected to participate in housekeeping chores and be involved in food preparation. This is to develop the skills needed to live in community.  


The centre is managed by the Trustees of Refreshment UK and led by Simon and Laura Cooper, who have been encouraging and equipping Christians both in the UK and overseas for two decades. Through their ministry, they have been able to encourage and equip thousands of people across the world, and are passionate about delivering mission training.
