... long summer nights,  stunning countryside to walk and cycle in, a beach within minutes, wonderful food prepared by our team, powerful worship, plus teaching by Gerard Kelly from France. The perfect ingredients for inTouch at Restenäs on the Swedish West Coast await you from the 7th to 13th July 2019.


This year, we are honored to have Gerard Kelly share with us and we are looking forward to all that God will do in our midst during the week. Gerard and his wife Chrissie lead The Bless Network (, a European mission agency based in France. They have developed The Seven Stories that Shape Your Life (, a course to help believers of all ages find their place in the purposes of God. Using poetry, art and creative prayer, they will share the Biblical insights that have shaped their journey. Some of the areas they will minister into include:


- Creation (identity) - what does it mean to know myself as the beloved of God? What are his original intentions for me?

- Vocation (calling) - partnering with the God who calls each of us by name.

- Liberation (freedom) - walking with the God who sets his heart against every form of slavery.

- Restoration (inheritance) - embracing a life in which “restore is more than before” 

inTouch will start with an evening meal on Sunday the 7th. From Monday to Friday after breakfast we'll have a morning program consisting of worship and teaching.  After a delicious lunch your time will be your own to make the most of the area that Restenäs is located in. The local town Ljungskile has several attractions as does the whole coastal region. There's so much to take advantage of - but maybe you want to sit quietly and read a book, the choice is yours! Following our evening meal an informal program will be offered starting at around 19.30. You won't have time to get bored! 

inTouch is an opportunity to seek God and have fun together with your whole family. While the adults attend their meetings, the children and youth will meet in their own groups and get the opportunity to meet God through games and adventures. Join us for a week of excitement and learning!


We offer accommodation in small rooms (up to 4 beds) with shared wc's and showers. You can also bring your own caravan or tent for a lower price.

Your host again this year will be Bo Rudolfsson, founder of YWAM Restenäs. Why not contact friends from your DTS or other YWAM experience and invite them to join you at inTouch?  This is also the perfect opportunity for current YWAMers to invite their families, friends and supporters to get a taste of Youth With A Mission.  Book now as places are limited!
