Colin Ashdown

CIMG0424[1]A dear brother and friend died on Sunday 10th February. He had been struggling with his health for the past year and a half,  finding it hard to get his breath but sadly went down hill fast from the Tuesday. His family were with him round his bedside as Colin seemed to sense the end was near, saying he didn’t want to be resuscitated or taken to hospital if he took a turn for the worse. He watched Songs of Praise, looked at his watch and then said,’Take me Lord, I’m ready’, then peacefully breathed his last. He literally fell asleep in the Lord. What a way to go! Hallelujah.

The arrangements for his funeral are as follows:  Tuesday 5 March  11.30 am at

South London Crematorium, Rowan Road Streatham London SW16 5JG

for a brief service of committal,then

12.30pm SERVICE OF CELEBRATION and  THANKSGIVING at

All NATIONS CHURCH (Bonneville), 12 Poynders Rd., Clapham Park, SW4 8 NY

followed by light refreshments.

NB Please note Greyhound Lane is closed if wanting to go to the crematorium from Streatham.

A page will be opening shortly on this site in Colin’s memory for tributes and memories to be posted – of which there will no doubt be many!

    I never had the privilege of knowing him personally but I had met and watched him speak and I just knew within my spirit that this man knew his God. Your spirit confirms when someone has been and is walking with Jesus. He talked about boys brigade and genuinely loved God and people. It’s just good news hearing that he went peacefully, having a very honest and frank conversation with the God he knew. Irene from All Nations Church.
