YWAM Sydney Newtown — Australia's newest YWAM location.
YWAM Sydney Newtown is Australia's newest YWAM base in the inner city of Australia's largest metropolis. We believe everyone is called to missions, it's just a matter of finding where your skills, passions, personality, and the needs of the world collide. We offer Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) as well as opportunities for Gap Year programs, urban ministry, and local outreach all while enjoying inner city living and proximity to Sydney's best surf beaches and national parks.

YWAM Sydney Newtown

We are one of Australia’s newest YWAM centres—a small hub in the heart of inner-city Sydney. Be a part of pioneering this urban village along with us.



We are a tiny (think: pioneering) YWAM team with vision to grow into a thriving multicultural, multi-generational community in the heart of inner-city Sydney. For years believers have moved out to the suburbs. Along with a groundswell of others, we think it’s time to move back in and join the faithful who have stayed. Kingdom come, this is the yearning of our heart.



Our dream is to multiply community-based ministries all throughout Sydney in different villages, people groups, and spheres of influence, working together for city-wide transformation and mobilizing believers to take the gospel of Love to the folks next door and to the ends of the earth.

What is YWAM?

Join us in Sydney

Introducing the first-ever Urban Village DTS


We’re newly planted in the inner city in one of Sydney’s most colourful and eclectic arts and entertainment hubs, with Sydney’s famous surf beaches an easy bus ride away. Christian discipleship can happen anywhere, so why not choose one of the most iconic cities on earth? We LOVE it here and hope you will too!


Although we’ve run dozens of YWAM training schools in other locations around Australia, this is the first in our brand new location. Joining us now means you’re joining the birth of a new movement of YWAM in the city. We’re looking for adventurers and creatives, risk takers and pioneers to join us. . .

Every Christian is called to mission; it’s just a matter of finding where our skills, passions, personalities, and the needs of the world collide. For some of us, it also means reimagining what ‘missions’ even means.
