Why Eden?

Robin shares his journey to joining Eden Ladbroke Grove and how his life has been changed since.

What’s your name? Robin

How old were you when you first joined Eden? 27

Where did you live before joining Eden? Putney in London

Which Eden team did you join? Ladbroke Grove

What did you do as a job while on an Eden team? Insurance Underwriter

What led you to join Eden and relocate? 

Living in London, it was all too easy to drift in my walk with God. Work, exercise and church with like-minded peers used to occupy most of my week. This is not how I originally envisioned living out the kingdom of God. However, Eden provides the opportunity to become part of, and invest in a community which does not fit the young professional mould. It has enabled me to step out of my comfort zone in faith in order to serve my neighbour. It has brought me into fellowship with people from all kinds of walks of life. It has given me the chance to contribute to the body of Christ in a meaningful way.
