Worcester lies on the main route to and from Cape Town and Johannesburg only one hour's drive from Cape Town International Airport. It is aptly known as the capital of the Breede River Valley.
Worcester is a small town surrounded by beautiful mountains and valleys. It is a wine producing area and is close to Stellenbosch and Franschoek. It has a variety of shops, a and facilities including a health and racket gymnasium, outdoor swimming pool and restaurants/coffee shops.
Something interesting to note about Worcester is the Revival of 1860 starting here under Andrew Murray. Some of the direct fruit that flowed out of that revival in 1860, was the start of a Theological Training School, the release of many Missionaries and a Teachers Training program. All this had a major impact on the citizens of Worcester and the future of South Africa. Likewise, we believe that God wants us to have an impact on Worcester by networking with churches to release many South Africans of different cultures to be missionaries. In this way we will impact positively the future of our nation. Our aim is to equip and mobilize people to go as missionaries to people groups all over the world.
YWAM Worcester is the Gateway to Africa and the World.
We are trusting God for another revival in Worcester. On our base we embrace the Holy Spirit and have told God that He is welcome to do whatever He wants. This can mean that God can sometimes interrupt our programs. We are amazed how the Holy Spirit moves in our lives, on our base and while reaching out to the communities. It is amazing to see and makes us greatful how God is allowing inner and physical healing during many of our meetings and ministries.
Our base is also meant to be a place where artists feel home. Our aim is it, to provide an environment where artists feel free to be creative and to express themselves with their wonderful gifts.
