Based in other English locations, there are some projects that have come out of our Holmsted Manor community:
We believe that God has created the Isle of Thanet as a place of incredible purpose & potential. Thanet is rich in beauty and resources. Due to its location, it has a rich history & heritage.
Since 2013, teams from Holmsted Manor have invested in this corner of the south-east of England with DTS & SOMD outreaches, working with churches and prayer teams to reach out to the people in their neighbourhoods. In 2018, team leader Lucy made the move to Thanet, working towards having a permanent YWAM team based in the area.,
Aside from coordinating our Holmsted teams when they serve in the area, the ministry is actively involved local church networks of prayer, worship & intercession. YWAM in Thanet are working to reach out with ministry expressions of discipleship & spirituality in the areas of mercy, the arts and government.
SALT is a small YWAM team that has been working in the coastal city of Brighton and Hove for seven years. Our vision is to see the city encounter the life-changing love of God, and to build community focused around living a holistic, kingdom life with Him.
For us, this means:
- Celebrating God as Creator
We believe that God is worth celebrating. As we recognise Him as Creator, we can’t help but respond with our own God-reflected creativity. Whether through prayer, art, veg-growing or music, everything we do can be a response of worship.
- Encouraging Creation care
We believe that as followers of Christ, we have a God-given mandate to care for the world that He has created. We look to find sustainable ways of living on the Earth, including food cultivation, environmentally and ethically conscious lifestyles and the wellbeing of individuals.
- Sharing God’s love with others
We believe that the world around us is longing to experience God’s extravagant love, even if they don’t know it yet. Our heart is to partner with Him and use our creativity to communicate that love in ways that people can understand.
