Know God & Make Him Known

Community

AN CUAN

We call YWAM Rostrevor's centre “An Cuan” (on-koo-in), which is Irish for Harbour. It is a place where people come and rest, are restored, equipped and then sent out again.

We run Discipleship Training Schools, Open Mic nights, worship gatherings and ministry nights, community fairs, host retreats and other seminars, help local ministries, and send teams all around Ireland and the world. We have loved welcoming thousands of people through our doors. You are very welcome here!

Europe is increasingly becoming a post-Christian continent where God and church seem like fads from the distant past. We know one of the timeless forms in impacting societal brokenness, is for communities to form around the commitment to love God and love our neighbours. We intend to live here as an open, embracing community of YWAM missionaries, serving each other, and serving the people of the area we live in. 

Opportunities to join us:
Monday night Harbour, Friday night community meals, monthly open mic nights, fiddler's green music festival, An Cuan craft fairs and many more. 

When the centre was bought in 1974 it was in a time when "the Troubles" were wreaking havoc and bloodshed up and down Northern Ireland. Yet in spite of that history the centre became a place of encounter and reconciliation for people who had been enemies, or at least had been brought up on opposite sides of the tracks. We dream of this continuing to be a place where enemies meet each other, have a meal and reconciled, not only from Ireland, but from divided tribes and countries all over the world.

Opportunities to join us: Multi faith gathering,
Faith and conflict gatherings, Borderwalk and many more. 

We follow the principle that holiness and being like Jesus means "moving towards darkness". As the incarnation brought God in the flesh onto the streets of Nazareth, we believe that our primary calling as followers of Jesus is to represent Him on the streets of the darkest places on earth; places like Delhi, Bethlehem, Beirut, Durban, Serbia, Burundi and Baltimore. We are also called to be light in the cities of Ireland, and An Cuan provides a resource for the whole new generation of urban communities. People are disciples here, and leaders are trained and released to multiply incarnation work wherever God leads them.

Opportunities to join us: Discipleship training schools, Bible core course, Equip - School of ministry development and many outreaches to the nations
