YWAM Sydney Newtown







We are a small YWAM outreach centre in the heart of Australia’s oldest city. Kingdom come, this is the yearning of our heart.


Our team is currently focused on local community work and online ministry.


Please note: Australian border restrictions (due to Covid) have hindered our ability to accept international students at this time.







Navigating Spiritual and Emotional Crisis


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.)

Bereavement Support


Have you lost a baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or other forms of perinatal death? Please join us for an (on demand) online remembrance service. Give yourself the gift of space to grieve, reflect, and honor your baby along with other bereaved parents from the comfort and privacy of your own home or browse our resources and support groups here.

What is YWAM? (pronounced “why-wham”)

We are all called to Love



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

“The world needs more Christians who don’t tolerate the

—Francis Chan


With respect we acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of the land in which we live, and pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging. YWAM Sydney Newtown is grateful to have been welcomed to Sydney by indigenous elders and we take great care in learning to walk on this land gently.
