The Passing of Nicholas Skilling


Skilling.001“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants” Psalm 116:15

Our dear brother Nicholas Skilling was born on 29th March 1951. He was baptised into Christ on 31st August 2014.

Nicholas suffered from diabetes and then had a heart attack a few years ago leading to kidney failure. Because of these health challenges and the need to go for dialysis three times a week his wife, Rayehe, became his full-time carer.

Nicholas had a couple of heart attacks at the beginning of November and fell into a coma. On 8th December 2014, at the age of 63, he passed away and went to be with the Lord.

We remember Nicholas’s devotion to knowing and living for God, his eagerness to come out to every meeting and to joyfully serve even though he was often feeling unwell and tired. He had a pure, childlike heart and loved God wholeheartedly.

We thank God for his life and although we will all miss him, we are comforted in the knowledge that he died as a disciple of Christ – 1Thessalonians 4:13-18

Funeral plans are as follows:

Date: Monday 22nd December 2014
Time: 11:30 am.
Venue: St Mary’s Hornsey Rise, Ashley Road, London N19 3AD.

The burial will be after the service at:
