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.

*The “Shekinah Band” have been playing Klezmer Music and Messianic Praise songs for Israel dancing for many years now. They have played at events to honour Holocaust Survivors, at birthday parties and at the Jewish Festivals of Passover, Shavuot, Tabernacles, Hanukah and Purim. These festivals all point to the Lord and help us to break down barriers and build bridges with the Jewish community and teach Gentiles something of the culture we have been grafted into (see Romans 11). Klezmer Music is the folk music of Eastern European Jews but now has a devoted following all over the world. The band sing traditional Klezmer songs in Yiddish, Hebrew and English and encourage dancers to join in the simple choruses, which are great fun to sing. They also play and sing modern Messianic Songs written by Jews who believe that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and the Son of God. Such Jews call themselves Messianic Jews and there has been an outpouring of new praise songs from them. The music the band  play has proved very popular and, at the end of an evening celebration, it's a great joy to see everyone smiling - having been built up by this joyful and inspiring music.
