Our Vision

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Belfast is an ecumenical, multi-cultural organisation that is called to share the message of Jesus’ love by inviting people into God’s family, discipling believers, building community and taking part in the ministry of reconciliation.


As followers of Christ, we believe that the love of God can positively impact individuals and whole communities. We desire to live our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ by serving whomever we can as well as partnering with those who are contributing towards the healing, restoration and flourishing of Belfast and the island of Ireland.
