Young Adult (18-25) Share House Application

We will prioritise applications from young adults, aged 18-25, who want to live in Christian community.

We will prioritise young adults moving out of home for the first time and not already connected to another local church.

Please fill in the form below and submit it to place your application for a room. The households will normally make offers in mid-December to mid-January. Occasionally vacancies arise in November, December and January and sometimes other times of the year, so if you are able to move in during those time frames please note so on the form.

    NB: The information you provide below will be shared with the Pastor, and the Share House Administrator. Because the houses are co-tenancies, it will also be shared with existing tenants to consider your application.
    References will NOT be provided to the tenants, and applications will not be considered without at least one Church Leader reference)






    (Preference will normally be given to applicants who genuinely intend to commit to joining HWBC)


    The following information will help us place you in the appropriate house and room. We can not guarantee that any of your preferences will be available to you, however.

    Leases start in late Jan – we will confirm your actual starting date based on the rent cycle. We sometimes have availability on other days of the year, feel free to enquire.
