An Cuan YWAM Ireland

An Cuan

YWAM Rostrevor is called “An Cuan,” Irish for Harbour – a place where people come to rest, to be restored, equipped and then sent out again.



We've finished our third Border Walk! Thank you for following and praying for us again as we walked the border to pray for Ireland.

Welcome to YWAM Rostrevor

Who are we?

who are we?

We walk with a desire to be “Jesus with skin on” embodying the values of community, mission, renewal and reconciliation. Whether we are in the Shankill Road in Belfast, Temple Bar in Dublin, the streets of Burundi or Serbia, schools in Lebanon, the check points in Bethlehem or townships in South Africa, we are dedicated to living lives made up of indiscriminate acts of kindness and service to Jesus.

In June 2010 YWAM was gifted our iconic centre on the shores of Carlingford Lough in an area C.S.Lewis described as his inspiration for his mythical land of Narnia. We inherited the building from the Christian Renewal Centre which had been a bastion of reconciliation and spiritual renewal since the early 1970’s in the midst of Northern Ireland’s Troubles.


Intro to An Cuan

We called YWAM Rostrevor “An Cuan” (on-koo-in), Irish for Harbour. It is a place where people come and rest, are restored, equipped and then sent out again. Today our centre is a hive of activity. We regularly run Discipleship Training Schools, Open Mic nights, Worship gatherings and Ministry nights, Community Fayres, host retreats and other seminars, Parent and Toddler groups, Sewing Groups, and send teams all around Ireland and around the world. We have loved welcoming thousands of people through our doors. You are very welcome here!
