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 and to 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 space for community events that bring people together.
At the heart of all we do is our desire to include, consider and respond to who we believe God is. There’s space to think, space to get involved, space to develop ideas and space to experience a thriving 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 location in the West Sussex countryside, YWAM Holmsted Manor can be found just 15 minutes from London Gatwick airport. It’s also only 45 minutes on the train to central London, 30 minutes drive to the creative city of Brighton and a 10 minute drive to the multicultural town of Crawley. Both 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. For us, this looks like feeding the homeless street community a hot breakfast every weekend in Brighton, serving ministries working with vulnerable men and women; supporting projects reaching out to youth and children in our area and so much more!

Our staff team also get involved with local churches, with some leading youth work, mission, outreach and sometimes also preaching and speaking. We love to invite our local community to join us in some of our regular activities, such as meals, open mic nights or even just popping in for a cup of tea!
