Byron Bay

  • Show All Centres


Byron Bay is a popular holiday destination known for it’s beaches, surfing, relaxed, chilled-out atmosphere and being a spiritual gateway to the nation. People come to Byron Bay searching—some looking for adventure and excitement, others seeking peace and spiritual enlightenment.  When Kevin and Tiffany Stickl first came to Byron Bay in 2004, they came with the vision of being a light in a dark place.

From bustling streets to remote jungle villages, from Buddhist monks to Muslim housewives, the light reaches out to the farthest corners of the earth and into the darkest corners of the human heart.

Evangelism Opportunities
Since most of these travellers would never enter the door of a church, YWAM Byron Bay has decided to bring church to them! Evangelism is an integral part of who we and our vision to reach the backpackers that travel through Byron Bay each year.

Every week, the park in downtown Byron lights up with the presence of God as backpackers, locals and homeless alike intermingle, enjoying free food, live music, dramas and testimonies. 100’s of free Bibles given away find their way into the hands and backpacks of people from every tribe, tongue and nation.
