THIS IS OUR HOME
Restenäs, which is situated in the countryside on the West Coast of Sweden, about I hour north of Gothenburg. The closest town is Ljungskile (6 km), a community of about 5000 inhabitants. In Ljungskile, we have two supermarkets, a post office, two pizzerias, four cafes, a pharmacy and a selection of other stores. Uddevalla, which is is the closest city, is 25 km away and has the usual stores and amenities one would find in cities. Both towns are accessible by a limited bus service, which passes our property. There is also a big shopping mall about 20 km away where we would normally go for all kinds of shopping.
The campus is home to a few of YWAM schools and ministries which put into good use our facilities, including; a gymnasium, a soccer field, a beach volleyball field, a café, dining hall, dormitories, classrooms, laundry facilities and a meeting hall. We are situated approximately five minutes' walk from the sea, which is part of the Swedish archipelago (a group of islands). This property has been in the hands of YWAM since 1980. Previously it was an orphanage and then a Christian boarding school, and has been in the hands of Christians for the past 100 years.
Restenäs is located in a beautiful area. In fact, many Swedes take their summer holidays right in our area because of the beauty. We are located in the countryside and surrounded by rich forest. If you like nature and want to experience some of the beauty of God's creation, Restenäs will definitely meet your needs!
