Eden Tremorfa: ‘They didn’t know church could be this way’

Launched in February 2016, Eden Tremorfa (Cardiff) have been working to see God’s kingdom alive in their community. Team leader Matt shares a recent story from their estate.   

‘We started 2019 with a time of real intentional prayer and through this we’re seeing God move among young families and our Eden team who are right at the heart of it. Two families in our team had a joint dedication service for their one-year old sons on the first Sunday in February inviting loads of people along.

The church was absolutely packed – two thirds being visitors. Some were family members and other Christian friends but they were mostly local people and friends from the church toddler group. We had an after-church lunch and everybody who came stayed for ages. They were so relaxed and didn’t want to leave.

There was an amazing atmosphere and many guests mentioned that they didn’t know church could be this way. It’s a testament to the real relationships and friendships that these families have developed over the few years that they’ve been on the estate. Our after-church lunches happen every month and we’re fully expecting some of these families to return to the next one.’
