Why I think Revelation TV is being investigated by the Charity Commission

Howard Conder lied about me for propaganda.

Yes, I know, there are many people out there who couldn’t believe such a thing. I didn’t think he was capable of something quite so awful, especially to someone who gave him a year of their life to help set up Revelation TV.

Howard did this because the Revelation Foundation is being investigated by the Charity Commission for various things. Howard wrongly believed that I had been one of the people who reported them. I wasn’t, but perhaps I should have been?

In his desperation Howard wrote a very long Facebook post back in November 2014. In it, he talked of a Sarah nee J. That’s me! However, my actual name is Sarah Acott. Unfortunately, Howard decided to rewrite history and made many false accusations about me.

The thing that is hardest to forgive, however, is not the lies about me personally, as there is a chance he may have just been confusing me with someone else. The real problem is that I sent a confidential report to the trustees in 2012, which together with the lies, Howard EDITED and posted on Facebook!

Why would Howard do this?

The only logical conclusion I can come to is that he needed someone to blame for the Charity commission investigation. He had to vilify someone. How else could he explain the investigation if there weren’t evil people out there?

I’m not the only one he’s lied about either. There are so many people who Howard has attacked through his Facebook page and reading his other posts made me feel a little ill. He’s even attacked my entire family publicly, both on air and Facebook with nonsense about how we’ve brought down churches!

I honestly can’t think where that came from as my family have taken unpaid pastoral roles in the past in order to save 2 churches. My mum has provided free Christian counseling for countless people and done so at great sacrifice. My father was one of those in the early days of Christian TV (He even helped Howard (unpaid, I believe) set up his pre-Revelation studio about 20 years ago, when I was just a child) and has a great reputation for not only his expertise and dedication, but also being of good character, which Howard has tried to ruin.

I know of many people who Howard has threatened with solicitors, myself and my father included, just for questioning things. Normally Howards intimidation works, but he’s libelled me and so I can now write these things without fear.

All of these things are pre-meditated. It took a lot of thought to not only to lie about me and my character, but to actually take a legitimate well-intentioned report and edit it for propaganda… you don’t do that without thinking about it first, do you?

My report, which you can access below, was addressing fundraising tactics. At the time, when asked where the Conders get their money from, they would always say they don’t take money from Revelation, they have “other means”. This was not true as the Conders were getting paid by the back door through 21st Century TV Ltd (a private limited company) the whole time.

I can’t count the number of people who would tell me how wonderful it was to see Howard and Lesley running the station with no financial reward at all and how great it was to see where every penny goes. I never had the heart to tell them it was a lie. Perhaps I should have, but I didn’t have the proof until more recently.

One person I know has donated nearly £200,000 (yes you did read that right). This person is now trying to get their donations back as they donated because of deception and in this particular case outright lies concerning 21st Century TV.

How many others donated because they were deceived? Were you one of them?

I have sent many emails both to Howard and the Trustees and the only person who has actually made the effort to put things right is Alan Tun, who is sadly no longer a trustee. The only other communication I had, is Gordon Pettie distancing himself from the situation and denying any responsibility to act.

I have been informed by Alan Tun that Howard won’t even read my emails, because it will get him too stirred up. The reality is that I can prove Howard has lied and he knows if he reads my emails he will actually have to deal with the truth.

As believers we need to be the ones to expose this. The Independent have already published that the Revelation Foundation are being investigated and it’s important that we tell the story as to why first. We Christians are the ones who funded and gave our time to Revelation, so we should be the ones who correct it.

    • Gill, I’m so sorry they have responded badly yet again.

      One way or another we will stop them. They have shown themselves for the wolves they are and as such they need to be dealt with as wolves.

  2. When I first felt uneasy in my spirit about Revelation I did some research into a number of companies Howard had set up and Gordon. I was surprised how many had gone into liquidation. Not a good advertisement for a solid financial background. Then I came across Jamsync run from the Revelation studios in Surbiton. They used all the equipment bought by Revelation viewers to their own ends. Not like my husband when he had a business no-one donated equipment for him. No, we have funded the Conder and Pettie families for too long. I am just praying that maybe someone within the inner circle will see through all this. Church without Walls is certainly true. Their are no boundaries and no real accountability. Alan Tun has only just appeared back on the scene and he has no idea what has gone on.

    • There are defiantly a long list of companies associated with the Conders and Petties. Gordon Petties investment company has many unanswered questions and jamsync etc is just not on.

      There are too many dodgy deals going on and the only ones benefitting are the Conder family. I’m still working out pettie as he may be more interested in being on tv than money.

      The inner circle all know the full story, but their refusal to act means they are condoning the behaviour.

      There was an anonymous post by a volunteer at rtv. It seems that the volunteers at least are questioning the direction of the channel. Sadly they are the only ones with nothing to lose. The others have been complicit and so have to carry on with the lies.

  4. I have just read the report from Howard regarding Revelations finances and they have been earning £40,000 a year by his own admission and considers it chickenfeed. I am sure a lot of the people who have given would have liked to have earned that money but perhaps his idea of wealth is different from ours. I know he also said the hours they work but what about the hours the people who have donated have worked. It is not exceptional work for the Lord. There are many doing the same voluntarily. There seems to be something quite wrong to pay your own family wages (some of which are not Christians) and then volunteers nothing (they have the balance wrong). I know it is human nature to look after our own but it is an uneven playing field.

If they have nothing to hide why block people who have asked questions. Well it is in Gods hands now and the law. I do no know what possessed Howard to put Gordon in charge of their finances knowing his history but perhaps at that time Howard was not aware of his involvement in the Barlow Clowes debacle.

  6. Just a last thought. When you belong to a Church and tithe to them, the books are open any time for scrutiny and should there be questions the appointed people in the Church are answerable to the body and of course God. We are not barred from walking in that Church again. When Gordon was asked some years ago about the accounts all he said was “they are out there in the public domain”. No details as to where we could find them and that you would have to pay to see them. I have come to the conclusion now that all the Trustees integrity has been brought into question and it is not “satan” attacking them but they are a product of their own ineptitude.

  13. Gill its the fact of them not making statements that makes people suspicious, they say they are transparent and that the viewers are family but they ignore so many perfectly reasonable questions and then complain when people query things.

    They need to remember that they are a charity and should be accountable to answer queries more so Christian need to be sure that they are being wise with Gods money and whom they donate to. Any reasonable Christian would have no problem answering and being polite to their viewers or supporters.

    They say they are a church without walls so would any pastor stand up and falsley accuse anyone without even having the facts or make threats or be downright rude. Or lock the door on you and refuse to answer you. the problem is they are not accountable at all to any Christian body or church body or church. Suggested arbitration has to wait until lthe investigation with he CC is over, when ever that will be.
    Hugh Jackman backed out of helping with that based on something he read on someones blog that was nothing to do with the people involved in proposed arbitration.

    It makes you wonder why.

    Howard could have make an honest statement re Howies and also the supporters and viewers are surely entitled to know exactly where the so called ring fenced money went for the OB Truck. I have E Mailed the interim manger with my concerns over it. Someone has a recording of the fundraising night for the OB truck. They should say exactly what other vehicle ahs been purchased and exactly what it is being used for as it is not being used for the original purpose that people donated for.

    It would seem that no one in UK is benefiting from the alternative purchase either.

  16. Sheila’s last comment hits the mark bang on target!
    What exactly does “church without walls mean”? Most think it means non-denominational, but the truth is that RTV are a “law unto themselves”. Church “without walls” in their case means a church that can do as they please, when they please? In my understanding of God’s Word they have used the Word of God as a tool to “blaspheme His name” Romans 2.24.
    The divines of old would live within walls, that is they would sign up to “Confessions of Faith” i.e. the most noblest of confessions, that is the Westminster Confession of Faith (Presbyterian) or the Thirty Nine Articles (C of E).
    But these charlatans have NO confession-they freely confess that they are “WITHOUT WALLS!” That means they can do as they please. Yes they have “a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” 2 Timothy 3.5.

    I only watched as they said they would be talking about the new building, not much said about this, much more over and over saying that people were giving in this way and that way maybe trying to cajole viewers to do the same ?

    Then Hugh Jackman in my opinion was doing a watered down more subtle approach that the other christian channels do by reading about a blessing if in unity so if you support and are inline with REV you will get the blessing, , very much more subtle than other “promises ” by other channels but the message was there, give and you will be blessed.

    Then he made a remark that they have 8 or 9 cameras around their home, had to add that it was so that people could watch what they are doing.
    Hugh later on said that some people think they are evil, so it seems that asking questions or pulling them up on wrong issues makes it that people think they are evil.
    Among all of this unecessary sarcasm an aethiest e mailed in ,they were trying to tell him about God but surely they should be showing him God be not behaving in the this manner on air, ” “you will know them by their fruits”.
    The subject about dividing the sheep from the goats or wheat and tares was very biblical and interesting but maybe it was a bit too close to home with all that has and is going on.
    They say some people think they are evil but as ever overlook their part in accusing people falsely, I for one would not be on here or even watching anymore of howard had not falsley accused me of conspiring to contact the charities commision, they provoke people to respond to their comments etc by their unreasonable behaviour and then complain.
    Hugh backed out of arbitration because a third party had made some comments on her blog, he chose to go that way.

    I haven’t watched RTV for some 4 years now. I don’t have the SKY set up (wouldn’t pay for it anyway! Though I still get their e-mail updates) and up here in the Outer Hebrides our internet connection leaves a lot to be desired! (though it is improving).
    I was never a ’round the clock’ viewer of RTV, but was more selective only watching what I considered at the time to be programmes with theological content (at that time men such as Jacob Prasch).
    I considered that “Mark the cabbie” (though a very likeable man) was given to much rambling, much the same as HC. Strangely enough, I never heard of “Steve Maltz” or “Steve the Thumb” though I am quite hard of hearing! (Which explains a lot!)
    That much older gentleman, I forget his name, I think he used to present Voice in the Wilderness, what was your opinion of him? He seemed such a genial old man, but subsequently have learned that he was not all that he seemed?
    I did try my best to alert the wider Christian community about RTV through channels such as Alan Franklin’s Free press Homepage, but this was a weak effort! But much better than alerting the BBC-as they would think both sides should be locked up in the loony bin?
    The Justin Peters incident was my watershed.

      I share your sentiment regarding TV. I do not even have a TV licence so can understand your position Re Sky.

      Regarding Voice in the Wilderness, I cannot endorse the two presenters you have mentioned. Sadly, there are some complicated things that I am aware of which make it difficult. One of which included taking a very strange position regarding a co-presenters behaviour toward their now estranged wife, who I personally spent years trying to help her get over his abuse.

      I think part of their appeal was their openness about their faults, which is very endearing and helps people to feel understood in their own struggles. There is a place for this, but it has got to be done well or it ends in HC like rambling.

      It’s very difficult to be balanced and fair, whilst still exposing things fully. Like yourself, I don’t see this as a secular press news story. They won’t get it.

      Things are being worked on to take things to a new level with this exposure, but my American Diner is manic at present and whilst it’s great to be busy, it’s slowing me down.

  30. There is an organisation called ‘Laymen’s Evangelical Fellowship International’ which needs to be looked into for similar reasons. Its late leader, an Indian man, named Joshua Daniel, in fact used Revelation TV to ‘preach’ in promotion of his activities (birds of a feather????). I would be grateful for guidance as to how to get the Charity Commission at least to look into its registered London branch. It is impossible to speak to anyone at the CC on the telephone to ask for advice on how to access crucial CC records (the significant year’s has apparently been ‘archived’, but I cannot find it on the govt. site) , and how to decide whether an investigation should be requested. There seems to be no office where one can call in person, and the online blurb simply does not cover the questions that need to be asked.

    A couple of general questions:

    Are there any circumstances in which a trustee can be paid a salary?

    Can proceeds of charitable trusts legally be sent abroad to support the lifestyles of organisation leaders in other countries? Allied to this, can trustees in any case ever benefit from the proceeds of a CT? I know that it is possible to pay trustees who can supply essential practical services to the organisation provided that the trust documentation allows for this, but where can one find such trust documentation?

      I’m not an expert, but I’m a trustee of a charity who I’m doing a lot of work for. I cannot be paid for this work as it would be conflict of interest.

      Trustees are there to ensure that a charity cannot be used by individuals to exploit. If you do believe this organisation are doing wrong then you should take it to the charity commission.

      The question is… do you have any evidence? If you give a few specifics the others and I might be able to help further.

      In any case it does sound like there is a conflict of interest. The use of money abroad isn’t a problem, but if it’s being used for reasons other than the Charities objectives there could be an issue.

      You’re welcome to email me directly sarahacott@yahoo.co.uk

  31. It would seem that Rev TV have purchased the land for their new studio. It’s on Facebook and Twitter. Clearly, the CC investigation is not stalling these charlatans from expanding.

  33. Time for Revelation last night
    Very ungodly comments about five people trying to thwart there plans and asking for £42,000 for a piece of equipment. Howards actitude is bad and quoting scripture to justify what has gone on. No mention of them having to put there trust fund into the new build
    A condition of the charity commission if they allow them to purchase the land with viewers money. They are repeating the program now.

    • I don’t watch at all now, but it seems that more has been said last night , did Howards say who the 5 people are that are trying to thrawt them, I just had a lot of new comments come through on my E Mail, I can’t find a repeat of last nights show, it sounds like Howard has been off accusing people again. The last I heard he was breaking away from CC and sending donators their money back, yet the land has been purchase, he gets more unstable, not sure if Luke still works for REV TV but he certainly had a ball at more than one vile Haloween venues, don’t they talk about Haloween, Doug used to, if he still works for them its a very bad apple in the ministry.

  34. The advancement of God’s Kingdom is not only financial blessings. It is evidenced also by people’s attitudes. For instance integrity and honesty. Another building project being financed is not necessarily a sign of God’s blessing. Is secular fundraising then a sign of God’s blessing. Howard’s remarks on Time for Revelation do not show either integrity or honesty. They have a platform to say what they like but when people challenge them over concerns they are blocked. Howard is surrounded by yes men. And many bad rulers in the Bible have done the same.

  35. Just turned on Time for Revelation whilst changing channels
    Lorna and Gordon were extolling the virtues of Howard’s genius. I think they have missed the point. It is God’s channel and this sychophantic behaviour only makes me think why do they feel the need to “big up” Howard perhaps they think gullible people will overlook his ungodly behaviour. You can be a genius and have no grace. Christianity is all about Jesus not Howard Conder. Sorry Rev TV but we can see right through you all.

    • I had a look at the repeat of time for revelation, Howard is still accusing “4 or maybe 5 people of reporting them, if a Person contacts the CC I thought it was totally confidential, so how can he keep assuming and accusing People. He goes on about biblical Characters having their own people against them, it is HE who is against innocent people, he judges without any factual evidance Does the bible not say take one or more witnesses to make an allegation, So much for his so called arbitration, he was supposed to want with some of us. Moreover his so called apology on his facebook page that said “If ” I have wrongly accused anyone, He still is !
      Viewers must be blind and dum to pay of air time for him to mess about with his latest toy
      “camera “, where on earth does that show the Gospel of Christ, just him messing about. Yet Gordon has the nerve to even cover him with his childish time wasting behaviour, He goes on about how much it costs to put live shows on yet he wastes time with his silly camera and then it’s is shown again on time for revelation, maybe he is trying to reveal what an utter time wasting money waster he really is. Leslie even lf said that if a new viewer tuned in they would turn off.
      Thy are still so smug that God has overcome everything that has been against them, the proof is that the land has been purchased , BUT Howard said he was returning peoples money !!! and breaking off with CC, so unstable the whole lot of them, they say one thing do another , always have ,make promise about what they are going to do them don’t carry them out, ” let your yes be yes ”
      I remember how “Bishop ” Mike Reid used to come on, with how wonderful his ministry was, what miracles they saw and how people came from all over the world to his church, they had a Choir all dressed in matching clothes, YET all the time he was commiting adultery with his choir mistress, God does always step right in , he lets things go until his timing them acts.

  36. Any dissenters are blocked on Twitter and their texts and e-mails are ignored, yet they have the cheek to repeatedly say they want to engage with believers and non believers alike. I fully agree with the comments about Leslie Conder, she is dim in the extreme.

    • Thank you Mr Conder for providing this information. Please do be aware that none of us actually wish to be negative and that we are merely responding to lies and accusations from yourself. Whilst rtv continues on its destructive path others must be warned of where their donations go.

      We would all genuinely appreciate a proper response from yourself. That was all I asked for before setting up this blog. There have been some admissions, which I’m pleased with, but there is a constant vilification of myself and others when our only crime has been to try to help you.

      You have all my contact details so please do get in touch if you wish to speak directly.

      You are already forgiven for what you have done, but that doesn’t make the situation ok.

      • Yes Sarah, I guessed it was him, his tone as ever. I would have no complaints if Mr Conder had not named me falsely re CC, I would not be involved at all, Howies and the lies surrounding that was the very very end for me and Gordon threatening Me., It is Howie who is making comments and allegations to his hearts content, yet he is blind to what he is doing, He throws his poisenous accusing false darts at one and all and expects nothing back, He is too cowardly to contact us, he had an opportunity to do so. He sits on air making comments about all and sundry and we are blocked, FB page taken Down, no response from Trustee’s I think someone once reffered to howard in his Cowards castle.

  38. The “What Howie is doing now” video is yet another example of this mans narcissistic personality. He is saying, look at me, aren’t I great. He believes himself to be beyond criticism, as is common with narcissists, and this is evidenced by his childlike tantrums when his many shortcomings are pointed out, and him getting rid of anyone who crosses him. In many ways, he is a rather sad and pathetic individual who has surrounded himself with sycophantic yes men to shore up his fragile temperament. I find him fascinating to watch if I’m honest as he is incapable of masking his shortcomings and often looks very foolish.
