WELCOME TO

H O L M S T E D

Holmsted Manor’s 17-acre site in the West Sussex countryside is a place to experience authentic community, discover more of who God is, who He’s calling you to be and how to live out the gospel of Jesus in the world.  It’s a home, it’s a learning environment and it’s a location where community events take place.
At the heart of all we do is our desire to include, consider and respond to who we believe God is. We have lots of space. There’s space to think, space to get involved, space to develop ideas and space to experience a living community.
There’s a space for you.

"Holmsted Manor is a mission-focused community, passionate about Jesus and about participating in God’s transformation of the world. A place to find belonging, we are committed to cultivating space for individuals to deepen their relationship with God and become more who they were created to be. Our goal is to see hope flourish as we serve together in our local, national and international communities."

Set in a beautiful 17-acre location in the West Sussex countryside, YWAM Holmsted Manor is located just 15 minutes from London Gatwick airport, making international travel very accessible. From Holmsted Manor, it’s only 45 minutes on the train to central London, 30 minutes drive to the south coast and the creative city of Brighton and a ten minute drive to the multicultural town of Crawley. Brighton and Crawley are key locations where we do regular urban outreach, sharing the love of God with our local communities.

Holmsted Manor itself is nestled in a community of small villages and we actively look to partner with local churches, ministries and other community groups to make a difference in our immediate area. Currently, we feed the homeless street community breakfast every weekend in Brighton; some of our team serving ministries working with the vulnerable and others reaching out to the children and youth people in our area.

Our staff also get involved in local churches with some of our staff team leading youth work, mission and outreach and preaching and speaking. We love to invite our local community to join us for some of our activities, such as barbeques and open mic nights!
