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."

In a beautiful 17-acre location in the West Sussex countryside, YWAM Holmsted Manor is strategically located not far from London, between the creative city of Brighton, and the multicultural town of Crawley, key locations where we do regular urban outreach. Living at Holmsted Manor means we often go out to get involved in other things. Nestled in a community of small villages, we actively look to partner with local churches, ministries and other community groups to make a difference in our immediate area. Currently, we have staff working in a local food bank, volunteering with ministries working with the vulnerable and singing in a local community choir.

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 and there are at least one, and often two, community type activities every month – from barbeques to open mics.
