Welcome to

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.


As Jesus said to his disciples, it’s our love for one another that speaks to the world around us that we are His followers. We create a space where everyone can experience belonging, whether they’re here for 10 minutes or 10 years.

We’re committed to cultivating space for individuals to deepen their personal relationship with God, whether that’s through teaching, one-to-one discipleship or simply curating the beautiful property to empower people to engage with Jesus.

We believe that God has more for this world and is working to bring about transformation and wholeness to it. As a community, our goal is to partner with His vision and join in with His transformation in our local, national and international communities.

"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.

Our team regularly attend a variety of local churches, with some involved in youth work, mission, outreach, preaching and speaking. We love to invite our local community to join us for some of the activities we hold on site, including events at Christmas, Easter and Harvest.


We're passionate about building God's kingdom wherever we are - how could you get involved?
