'The content was informative, thought-provoking, emotive and therapeutic. Sharing felt safe and fellow participants supportive. I feel re-energised, lighter, lifted and restored.'
'It was really helpful to hear a range of people's experiences who were at different points on the journey and get some hope!

‘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.
