Welcome to Nicholaston House, Christian Retreat and Conference Centre
Nicholaston House is Swansea City Mission and Educational Trust’s main charitable operation, having purchased the House in 1998 thereby establishing a Christian Retreat and Conference Centre overlooking Oxwich Bay.
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.
There are resident staff at Nicholaston House forming a small intentional Christian community. This number is supported by full-time, 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.
Trustees, who are ultimately responsible for the work of Nicholaston House meet on a regular basis and continue to act with foresight, faith, wisdom and courage.
Nicholaston House, standing in its own grounds overlooking Oxwich Bay, is set in Britain’s first designed Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Step outside and wander onto open moorland with its purple heather and golden gorse, and view the Gower ponies grazing on the gently sloping hillside. A leisurely walk to the cliff-top takes you to a beautiful view of Three Cliffs Bay - come and see for yourself.

‘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 moment we walked in we felt 'hugged' by the welcome, the appearance and feel of the whole House. The detail, character and little touches are so evident. God's welcome is tangible and makes you feel special.
