Being part of Youth With A Mission, our vision quite simple –To Know God and Make God Known. We aim to know Godreally know Him, And it’s from that place of knowing God that we want to find ways of sharing that knowledge and those experiences with others.

As an organisation we are all about giving others opportunities to engage with and encounter God through creative and innovative ways. We are so excited to be in Bristol, it really is an amazing city, with phenomenal people! As we have gotten to know the city and as we have looked at what we are passionate about we came up with this passion statement:

Vision 2

We’re based in and focused on Bedminster, which is a district of Bristol on the south bank of the river Avon, just a few minutes walk from the city centre. YWAM Bristol started in June 2013, so we are still a relatively new team. However there are still many more areas that we are excited to explore, looking for opportunities to create environments and communities for people to encounter Jesus.

So often we can answer the question of how best to share our faith by starting with ourselves – by asking, “what am I passionate about, and how can I use that to share who God is to me?” Whilst this is good and does work, we have felt God leading us to ask a slightly different question – what would we need to do to share God’s love with our community? This has led us to ministry involving young people and art as well as discipleship and teaching in churches and work with the homeless. You can find the specifics of our ministries here.

As we start our first training course next year (DTS) we hope to answer this question further as we become more effective in the ministries God calls us to.

We believe that God has huge plans for Bristol and we are privileged to play whatever part he gives us. There is already such a fantastic level of unity amongst the churches in Bristol and it has been an honour for YWAM be made very welcome into the city.
