We are a YWAM training hub and outreach centre in the heart of Australia’s oldest city. Be a part of pioneering this urban village along with us.



Tethered to Hope


What if our crisis could become a catalyst for flourishing without ignoring our deep human need for lament and grief? What if we grant ourselves permission to name our grief and suffering, give it air to breathe, find God’s presence in our pain, and entertain the possibility that hope can help us heal?


Tethered is a bundle of 40 videos and a journal/workbook to help you engage your grief and faith along with a community of 1600+ other grief walkers. Videos are available on demand to work through at your own pace. (See the topics we cover here.)

We are a small, pioneering YWAM team with vision to grow into a thriving multicultural, multi-generational community in the heart of inner-city Sydney. Kingdom come, this is the yearning of our heart.



Our dream is to multiply community-based initiatives all throughout Sydney in different villages, people groups, and spheres of influence, working together for city-wide transformation and mobilising believers to love their neighbours well.

What is YWAM?

Join us in Sydney

Introducing the Urban Village DTS


We’re newly planted in the inner city in one of Sydney’s most colourful and eclectic arts and entertainment hubs (Newtown), 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!


Joining our pioneering team means you’re joining the birth of a new movement of YWAM in the inner city. We’re looking for adventurers and creatives, risk takers and pioneers to join us. . .

Find out more about DTS

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.


We’re not interested in being heroes or saviours. We’re interested in learning to love well, knowing that our well being is wrapped up in our neighbour’s well being. Jesus taught us that every woman, man, and child deserves the dignity afforded to them by God, so we give our lives to following his example.

For the Love
