Introducing Jeni Nottingham

Pioneer Evangelist Blackpool Center of Mission

Starts 14.06.2021

Hello, I am Jeni.

I am married to Pedro who currently studying at the Nazarene Theological College. We have a one-year-old daughter called Maria. Her main hobbies include eating fruit and saying “no”.

I am a University of Sheffield graduate in Biblical Studies and soon will have completed a PGCE in Religious Education. Previously, I served in Brazil with YWAM where I worked with an indigenous community. And then in Nepal, where I worked with an organisation that included a church, Bible college, media projects and a home for children.

We are both really excited to be coming to the Grange Park community and see what God has in store for Blackpool. I am particularly passionate about making the Bible accessible through discipleship and seeing people of all ages come to faith.

Pedro is also passionate about helping people to come to know Jesus in a life changing way, and is also excited about being part of the Centre of Mission.



It has been announced that the Diocese of Blackburn is one of eight across England to receive a share of £24.4 million in funding to support major work on growth and change across the country.

Working with the churches of St Mark’s, Layton and St Luke’s, Staining a lead evangelist and a pioneer evangelist, based at Grange Park Church Army Centre of Mission in Blackpool, will be funded to continue work already under way by clergy and congregation on the estate. A network will also be set up across Blackpool to help parishes support each other in mission and evangelism.

 Lead Evangelist for Grange Park Captain Matthew (Matt) Rowley.  We also welcome his family Lucy, Emily, Issac and Daniel.


Rev'd Peter Lillicrap and Captain Matthew Rowley
