The Nicholas family outside St. Dunstan's College, Lewisham, London. It was at this College that Paul & Jannine Nicholas were awarded top Academic Scholarships after passing the entrance exams with distinctions. During the time Paul and Jannine were attending St. Dunstan's College, the following were the appointed Headmasters. Mr B. D. Dance, -July 1993, Mr. J. D. Moore,1993- July,1997, Mr. D. I. Davies, September 1997- 2004 and Mrs Fiona Cordeaux September 2004 -2006.

Mrs Cordeaux was once Deputy Head of Wimbledon High School. Interestingly enough Dr. Anthony F. Seldon was one time the Deputy Headmaster whilst Paul was studying there. We notice that Dr. Seldon is a regular contributor now on some very stimulating Radio 4 Programmes. He is currently the 13th Master of Wellington College located in the Berkshire village of Crowthorne.23rd May 2014- We are praying and committing Mrs Joanna Seldon into the comforting arms of our Lord.We will remember their three children too.

"St Dunstan’s College in Catford has a long lasting impressive history. It was opened on Monday 1st October 1888. It takes its name from the parish of St. Dunstan-in - the - East in the City of London. He was born in the early 10th century near Glastonbury where he later became Abbot. Dunstan was famed as a teacher, a craftsman, artist and musician. He helped to revive the monasteries of England and the Church proclaimed him a saint shortly after his death in 988 AD."

Read about Paul graduating from Cambridge University

Read why Jannine's photo and an article appeared in the Croydon Advertiser, 31st August 2007. She received an official letter from St. Johns College Cambridge January 2009 stating that they are delighted to be able to tell her that she has been given a conditional offer of a place to read for a BA Honours degree in Law - but the conditions are tight and demanding.

It will be appropriate to insert here that we conducted a special Holy Spirit training school at home.This school commenced at a very tender age. Dad and Mum told Paul and Jannine that it would be called‘The School of Excellence and Well Being’. The curriculum would produce champions. It commenced with both our children writing out neatly some verses from the Bible and then they read the verses loudly like a professional newscaster. We gave them practice runs to make sure that people from all over the world would be able to understand every word they uttered. We actually got some accolades from their teachers. They testified that they are convinced that most of their academic success came from what they learnt at home. We also taught our children the basics of English, Maths and General Knowledge.

On Saturday 29th January 2011 we were blessed to attend the Awake Arise Day Conference at New Life Assembly Church at Upland Road, Dulwich. We heard some formidable Christian champions declaring the principles of the Kingdom of God. Mainly Andrea Minichiello Williams of The Christian Legal Centre and Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Bishop of Rochester. The other speakers included Tony Horswood, Ade Omooba and Pastor Lovel Bent. We received a fruitful overflow, an incredible reward for having attended this conference. Both our children had their applications approved in a very competitive field to attend the William Wilberforce Academy 2011 at Exeter College, University of Oxford. We were sharing at home that a week avidly listening to challenging lectures from Mark Baines - Pastor of Faith Life Church, Cambridge, Paul Coleman - Legal advisor to Christian Concern, The Right Honourable, Professor The Baroness Cox of Queensbury, Mr James Dingemans QC, Dr. Andrew Fergusson - Christian Medical Counsel, Peter Jones of truthXchange, Josephine Quintavalle- Director of Reproductive Ethics (CORE), Julian Rivers - Professor of Jurispridence, Dr. Sam Solomon - Islamic Affairs Advisor, Jeffrey J. Ventrella - Senior Vice President of Alliance Defense Fund and a special guest was Nadine Vanessa Dorries Member of Parliament Mid Bedfordshire--(we salute this indomitable warrior). This breadth of speakers will definitely strengthen and embolden the Christian foundation within Paul and Jannine. Thank you Father God!

Referencing the Christian Legal Centre, credit must also be made to Mr Paul Diamond, a Barrister and Queen’s Counsel who has on occasions represented Christians who felt they were unfairly treated, notably within their work environment. In some cases he has been very successful in the final adjudication. May our Lord raise up more barristers to parallel Mr Paul Diamond.

"Press LINK to read Anton's response to the sermon preached by the Bishop of London..  Our family prayerfully viewed the "live" service". Brethren our prayers were answered.  The Bishop's opening words were: "Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire."

After attending our very vibrant All Peckham Good Friday service at the Baptist Church we decided for the first time to witness a live performance of The passion of Jesus performed freely to the public in Trafalgar Square on 22 April 2011.Two performances were held, one at 12 noon and the other at 3-15 pm. There was a very big screen and wonderful acoustics. Our summary is, it was magnificently performed; and very moving. It might be on next year again. We exhort you not to miss it!! What a delight to see the very Bishop of London himself giving the final benediction. Well done Dr. Richard John Chartres. Just one recommendation, it would have been a sheer blessing, if we could have concluded the anointed drama with the LORDS PRAYER- THE OUR FATHER.

Saida's former school
The above photograph is the school Saida attended in Kampala, Uganda, located on Makerere Road, Old Kampala. Saida completed her secondary/senior education in the United Kingdom. Its a story worth reading. PRESS LINK:

The Aga Khan School, one of the Foundational schools funded by the Prince Aga Khan himself. The funding is conjoined to the Aga Khan Development Network, a charitable agency.

  Saida's former mosque
 Above: The iconic " Jamat Khana". Old Kampala. 

Whilst Saida was growing up in Kampala she elegantly followed her family to go and meet the present Aga Khan, Prince Karim, (The Aga Khan 1V) in the beautifully decorated “Jamat Khana”. View the photo above (gathering House/Place-Old Kampala). On the few occasions he visited Uganda, thousands came to see him including those from other parts of Africa, meaning all those Ismailis who honour him as their spiritual leader. Even today the memory of these meetings is still vivid and fresh in Saida’s mind. Saida reports that the sweets and the meal served after the meetings were delicious. Now and then we do pass a strategically located " Jamat Khana" on Addiscombe Road, Croydon, Surrey, just opposite the Sandilands tram stop.

It is also noted with interest that Prince Aga Khan and prospective Republican Presidential Candidate (2011) Governor Rick Perry and his wife Anita of Texas are great friends. The Governor opened a Jamat Khana in Houston in the presence of the Aga Khan. The political gene was once very strong within Anton. If not for the calling of our Lord on Anton’s life he would have joined the political process in Malaysia. He finds American politics exciting!
He keeps a close eye on the American Presidential elections.

Marie Brennan is married to Tim Jarvis, whom we knew as an excellent photographer whilst at St. Marks Church, Kennington.
Anton & Saida's wedding

The Grand entrance of the Bridal Procession was both elegant and memorable. The sole trumpet sounded the beautiful rendition of the, “Bridal Fanfare”. Hear the music on the audio and video recording below. The melody was lively and welcoming.

This event of the 23rd April 1983 confirmed the vision.

How did two individuals from different continents with contrasting, rigid family backgrounds, join together in Holy Matrimony?

Anton was an orthodox, ultra-conservative, true blue Roman Catholic, a faithful early morning daily communicant. Jesus had to appear in a three dimensional open vision for Anton to receive a Heavenly assurance to marry a non-Catholic. Do view the video below  to witness how the narrative in the vision came to fulfilment. Ever since then their lives took on an unexpected course.  Press Here to read what happened

Listen below to Anton and Saida's wedding on audio.

Anton & Saida's wedding
This is how St. Marks Church, near Oval, Kennington looked in its glorious setting during the 1980’s. It was in this divine splendour that our marriage took place.

2012 --We offer our congratulations to Reverend Stephen Coulson at his recent appointment as Vicar of St. Mark’s Kennington. He was the former Vicar of St. Mark’s, Mitcham. Do view the You Tube production inserted in the Home Page. It will be a great encouragement, on how much we have prayed and interceded for this precious church during one decade, the 1980’s. This culminated in an early Morning Prayer meeting at St. Marks Chambers, upstairs of St. Marks Church.

Capture what happened when our Lord Jesus appeared to Anton in a 3 dimensional Prophetic vision at a Prayer Centre near the Pyrénées mountains in France, July 1979. It was a Divine instruction that had to be fulfilled and obeyed to the last dot. Every scene in the vision came to pass and was fulfilled on 23rd April 1983.
Do read the contents below and familiarize yourself with what one has got to go through to be steadfastly obedient to a vision...

Anton was an orthodox, ultra-conservative, devout Roman Catholic, attending daily Mass. He came from a very true-blue Roman Catholic family and receiving daily Communion was very significant. Whereas Saida was a thoroughbred born- again evangelical Christian, an evangelist drawing people to Jesus, who could not understand the concept that a Roman Catholic can experience a spiritual rebirth too. The answer lies in the vision. It was a three dimensional open vision in which our Lord Jesus appeared twice to Anton and showed him the whole marriage scene and the individuals involved. Thereby divinely mandating Anton to marry Saida. (For he needed this powerful personal visitation to marry a non -Catholic-for he had an unswerving loyalty to the Catholic Church).

For Saida the Holy Spirit came upon her and anointed her with the gift of tears. A few days after meeting Anton, she could not control her tears whenever she thought about him. The Holy Ghost softened her and melted all her pre conceived unmalleable notions about Roman Catholics. Our Lord baptised her with a baptism of tears.
For we all need to be humble in spirit and bathed in tears. God always tenderises our hearts during our journey with Him. The vision occurred in July 1979 and the marriage was celebrated in April 1983. What Anton saw in the vision came to pass at our marriage including the individuals concerned. Our marriage played out as exactly as seen in the vision.

Since then as in accordance to Luke 6 verse 48 and Matthew 7 verse 25,the floods came, the winds blew, the torrents struck, various other vicious demonic attacks, curses, and formidable fiery darts tried to strike the foundation of the marriage and the family but they could not succeed or prosper. For the foundation of the marriage was well built on the solid Rock of Jesus, as affirmed, confirmed and blessed through the Heavenly vision. Thank you Jesus. If you are curious to know what a fierce, fiery very painful dart is then please follow this link Just read the last four paragraphs!

Dedication of the Plaque to God with thankful memories of Nicholas Rivett - Carnac.

Nicholas' plaque

This event took place on Saturday June 30th 2007 at St. Church, Kennington. Marigold Rivett -Carnac prayed and blessed the Plaque in the presence of Nicholas's brother, the late Sir Miles James Rivett-Carnac, (1933- 15th September 2009) and his wife Lady April Rivett-Carnac. There were also a further 200 people of the old St. Mark’s fraternity present as well as other friends of Marigold. Our whole family was part of this invited congregation. We met up with friends whom we had not seen for so many years!

Vicars' plaque

We also heard after not seeing her for a long time what a former member of St Marks Church is now involved in: Anthea Dimitri- Fotiou. She works with a ministry called Asia Alive in USA and is also in the process of setting up a Prayer Centre. We remember Anthea’s sermons at St Marks, during the 1980’s she used to specialise in preaching on the Parable of the Sower, from the gospel of Mark, Chapter 4.

In the Times of London, 13th October 2009, on page 63 is an excellent obituary of Commander Sir Miles Rivett-Carnac in a near one page article. The column cites him as a Naval officer who combined public service with a successful career as a merchant banker with Barings Asset Management. The meaty obituary continues to state that he was generous in advising friends in financial difficulties. It makes an interesting read! Like his late beloved elder brother, Reverend Canon Nicholas Rivett Carnac (who incidentally married us) may they both rest joyfully in God’s Presence. We will remember the family, Lady April, Lucinda (Lulu Guinness), Jonathan and Simon Rivett- Carnac during our sacred prayer time.

Jannine at Alleyns Jannine at Alleyn's Junior School, Townley Road, Dulwich SE 22 2000/2001:

Form 5W, sitting alongside Jannine are Anna Putt and Augustus Lonsdale. Standing behind are the Class Teacher Miss W. Tyler, Alexander Ooi and Angeli Jeyarajah. We convey our thanks to Wendy Tyler for motivating Jannine to achieving academic excellence. Miss Tyler left Alleyn's in January 2002 to take up the post of Director of Studies at Dean Close Preparatory School in Cheltenham. We wish her every success.

The Headmistress during this period was Mrs Bridget Weir. We remember having some discussions with her in her comfortable office. She was the founding Headmistress of Alleyn's Junior School. Also at this time the Headmaster of Alleyn's Senior School, was Dr. Colin Niven. Incidentally, he was also the Headmaster of Island School, Hong Kong and Dulwich College, Shanghai. In 2002 Colin Diggory succeeded Dr. Colin Niven as Headmaster of Alleyn's. Mr Diggory was formerly Headmaster of Latymer Upper School. The school Chaplain during this term was the Reverend J. H. Jones.

Jannine successfully completed her Junior education at Alleyn's, July 2002. During the period 2001/ 2002 the School captain was Lucy Stooke. Both Lucy and Jannine are now undergraduates at Cambridge University. Press Link to read more regarding Jannine's progress at St. John's College, Cambridge. The latest updates are here.

Saida Nicholas

My dear wife Saida became a committed Christian on Easter Sunday, at a tender age of 16. She lost her own father when he died at a very young age, (42 years) and Saida was only sixteen months old. She came to the revelation, after going through intense spiritual warfare, that only God the Father can fill the place of this sad demise.

Psalm 68 verse 5: He will be a Father to the fatherless
Psalm 82 verse 3: Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; …deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

She has come to the realisation, after cementing her prayer foundation, that she should have exercised the gift of discernment, in regard to elevating the church pastors and leaders to a high and lofty pedestal, (who did more harm than good), to fill this vacuum : the void and the absentee love of her own father. In the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ, LVB Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false teachers who come disguised as harmless sheep, but are wolves and will tear you apart.” She realises now she should have developed an intimate relationship with her Heavenly God, Abba Father and come to know Him as her own Precious Father.

The Protection of the Lord. We desperately need Him during this crucial hour.

We pray for the protection of our Lord on our lives. Psalm 91 and Ephesians 6v10-20 is read in our household daily to combat all forms of adversaries, dangers, accidents, sicknesses, diseases etc. We reverse and boomerang back in its full package every demonic curse back to the place of origination.

Psalm 28v4: “Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours – render to them their desert!” We thank God for His anointed Word.

If you are trying to decipher what the above means in common parlance, then read what happened to the Nicholas family. You will encounter what warfare is! The above will become self explanatory."

Since 1983 as a family, we have been proclaiming, confessing and loudly acclaiming in a prophetic manner various scriptural verses. Job opportunities are opening up for Saida in various hospitals. She feels fulfilled that her years of experience are bearing great fruit now. She does a good amount of work at the Paediatric unit. Sometimes she is called to work at the Neo-natal intensive care unit. Thank God, that El- Shaddai, her Divine Father, is being very faithful to her. He is a Gracious and a Compassionate loving God!

We continue to meditate on this scriptural promise, which is coming to pass in our lives and it's found in a passage in the book of Joel Chapter 2:
24. And the threshing floors will be full of grain,
And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.
25. "Then I will make up to you for the years
That the swarming locust has eaten,
The creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust,
My great army, which I sent among you.
26. "And you shall have plenty to eat and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
Then My people will never be put to shame.

Saida at work. She loves to nurse babies!

This ward has now been moved to a brand new modern building inserted with up to date facilities Capture what happened , for our dear Saida to be delivered of agonizing physical pain. It was in this ward on 1st July 1997 (pictured left) she fainted suffering with intense pain.

After preaching the anointed Word, Anton laid hands and prayed for the people in need. We were grateful for the Presence of The Holy Ghost. Do watch the video and we pray as you are viewing that the healing power of the cross of Jesus will touch you personally.

Do watch a snippet of a very popular TV programme of Saida at work viewed by a significant global audience shown at peak time on BBC 1.

Jeremiah 8 verse 20: The harvest is past, the summer is ended and the fruit gathering is over, yet we are not saved! (Comes again the voice of the people). Oh help us to intercede Father God.

Our Children Paul & Jannine.

Paul at university At a tender age Paul memorised and meditated the Word and took heed to Psalm 1 and God The Father prospered him. At age 7 he was awarded the exceptional, “Noble Award”, and at age 10 in a highly competitive open entrance examination he won the “Exhibition Award” and at age 16 after securing 10 A* and 1 A in his GCSEs he was awarded a very rare 100% scholarship. He also received a Certificate of Distinction when he sat for the 2000 Invitational Mathematics Challenge Paper, open to only the best maths candidates from Year 11 and below. He has been offered provisional places at Christ College, Cambridge and at Imperial College, London to read Mathematics.


Do view Paul‘s very own exciting website. Its an interesting read with all the latest updates. He is now a qualified Actuary (A Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, England), after having graduated from Christ’s College - Cambridge, Imperial College -University of London and after having done a short course at Oxford University. Find out what has motivated him throughout his teenage years!

At age 3, Jannine Nicholas memorised the Lord’s prayer and recited it everyday and like Pa ul she wrote out the Word of God in her own handwriting. As to date she has written out 24 books of the bible. At age 5, Jannine sat for an entrance exam at Alleyn's Junior School, Dulwich. Out of 200 applicants, 100 were short listed to fill 16 places. God the Father honoured Jannine by successfully placing her within the 16 entries. At age 11 she won two scholarships to St. Dunstan’s College and Sydenham High School in London. Her name was published in 'The Times' on the 25th June 2002 for securing one of the top scholarship awards at St. Dunstan's.

She completed her Senior School at Old Palace School Of John Whitgift. In recognition of its outstanding commitment to each pupil, Old Palace School was presented with 'The Independent School of the Year Award 2005-2006' This information was reported in the Surrey and Sussex Telegraph paper (Issue 114).

Jannine is now an under-graduate at St. John's College, University of Cambridge, October 2009 The latest updates are here

Valerie Meilton.

On Friday, 16th January 1999, we were in Valerie's house in Claygate, Surrey. This was the day her dear Mum spoke her final words to us before she departed 6 days later. 'Please,please take care of my only daughter'. We have since adopted her as a member of our family.

Valerie Meilton on her birthday in 2001 Valerie Meilton was the Chief Dietitian at Guys Teaching Hospital in London. During the year 1987, she was called of the Lord to join Anton’s prayer ministry. Through a revelation of the Lord she resigned from the financially and permanently secured Chief Dietitian post. She had to totally trust our Lord here, for in self employment, the world will say, she was moving into unknown territory, but in the Lord's eyes she was moving into the land, flowing with milk and honey: a good land - a land with streams and pools of water, with springs flowing in the valleys and hills, a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing. Our Lord graciously delivered a business program to Anton to commence a dietetic business and it grew to become a very successful business and our Lord prospered her spiritually for whilst she was a Dietitian at Guys she was going through a dark night of her soul: depressed, disillusioned and totally in despair. Valerie's self-esteem was at the lowest ebb possible. Her Seniors, including the Head of her Department encouraged her to seek counselling within the precincts of the hospital. Thank God the prayer foundation gave her total deliverance and esteemed her highly. She now runs Dietetic clinics single-handedly, a function she was incapable of doing in the past.

In the year 2001, we gave her the promised holiday of her lifetime – a two-week visit to Malaysia. She enjoyed the sunshine, the coconut and the palm trees plus the sandy beach on the island of Penang. A Christian businessman in Malaysia went out of his way to extend his hand of favour upon us – he booked us into a four star hotel in Penang at a very special price and did a similar favour for us to secure accommodation, in one of the most busiest night spots in the Capital city. Kuala Lumpur by night is a beautiful sight. (The businessman has extended his kind invitation for us to visit Malaysia every year including the offer of low prices to stay at the best hotels.) Valerie was visibly moved and shocked to see the prosperity of Kuala Lumpur. The tallest twin towers in the world are located in this city. A word of thanks is extended to my family too, (which includes my father) who gave us a very pleasant and a thoroughly splendid holiday – plus exotic food and fruits galore! Valerie who is now an adopted member of the Nicholas household is of the conviction that we ought to take up the Businessman's offer and visit Malaysia every year!
