Chapel at Nicholaston House

The Nicholaston House Vision

The focus of Nicholaston House is to be a centre for healing and restoration channelled through various retreats and courses, and to facilitate Christian groups for conferences and away days. The primary focus, however, is as a centre for healing and restoration channelled through the various courses and retreats. In the words of a recent guest – it is a place of blessing, safety and sanctuary.

Nicholaston House "In this place I will give peace" Wall Hanging

In this place I will give peace.

– words which have blessed so many people as they step inside the porch at Nicholaston House.


Go through the door and look up to see the words emblazoned on the wall of the stairs - the words from Psalm 8 written to glorify God in His majesty.


The mural is the work of a small group of ladies, led by Viv Lewis, who have enjoyed creating this wall hanging following the God-given vision, to a visiting member of the prayer ministry team, of the House being a place of blessing.


As people stay and receive from God, blessing flows from the house and touches other people’s lives so that the effect of God’s love becomes immense, like an ocean. How great is the God we adore.

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.
