Employment and Voluntary Opportunities at Nicholaston House

Employment and Voluntary Positions at Nicholaston House

There are resident staff at Nicholaston House forming a small community. This number is augmented by part-time and casual staff.  The work is also supported by a host of volunteers who undertake a variety of tasks, from maintenance and gardening to counselling and prayer ministry. They offer invaluable help, but Nicholaston also provides them with a caring and therapeutic environment, giving meaning and purpose to their lives as well as a place of fun and fellowship.  Many have retired but want to continue useful lives and benefit from the therapy of work.


We are currently looking for people to join our team of volunteers.

Please get in touch for further information.


We are seeking to appoint a capable cook to join our small *intentional residential Christian community at Nicholaston House, which overlooks the sea in the heart of Gower.

Single-person accommodation, meals (in kind) and a shared laundry facility is provided, together with an allowance of £115/week. 40 hours per week, working 5 days from 7. The right person would be joining our existing residential Christian community; each of which have felt called by God to serve at Nicholaston House.
