GOD'S House: The Story of Nicholaston House, by Derrick Hancock.The incredible story of a retreat house in one of Wales’ most spectacular beauty spots has been published.

‘God’s House’ is a detailed account of how Nicholaston House came into existence by the man who had the vision and was given instruction direct from God.

In 1990 God unmistakably led Sue and Derrick Hancock to Swansea to see a vision fulfilled which God had given them some years previously. The booklet (A5, 53 pages, colour) gives a brief factual account of what God did and is doing. It has been written for two reasons - to give glory to God and to show what very ordinary people can do when they step out in faith with God. 'All that we have accomplished, You have done for us' - Isaiah 26 v 12.

'Kingdom Healing’ Prayer School with Revd Mike Endicott

29 April - 3 May 2019

...learning to pray the Kingdom way

Event Type: Course/Week

Theme/Focus: Bible Study/Teaching/Training

Check In: 4 p.m. Monday

Check Out: 10 a.m. Friday

During this week, Revd Mike Endicott will examine the call to return to the God-glorifying, abuse-free, comfortable, easy and worshipful way that Christ taught His disciples and the early church to proclaim the Kingdom and heal the sick.

Revd Mike Endicott takes a fresh look at healing as an important aspect of the life of the kingdom of God. Jesus' ministry shows that kingdom healing is freely available from God, whose will is always to heal meant for everyone, not just a few not dependent on 'techniques' and methods. We need, says Mike, to rediscover the heart of kingdom living: the telling of the good news; an atmosphere of faith; practical obedience to God's word; praise and worship; the Lordship of Jesus, in whom the love and the will of the Father are revealed, and the activity of the Holy Spirit. In the life of the kingdom, healing is found. 

Mike Endicott lives in South Wales, UK where, together with others, he founded The Order of Jacob's Well, as a national and international group of prayerful communities teaching and proclaiming the healing message of Christ's cross and kingdom. He spends his life in prayer and the encouragement of others through writing, ministry and teaching around the world.
