Here at Eden, we send and support teams of urban missionaries in deprived neighbourhoods – to live sacrificially, share the gospel and build authentic community.
We move into disadvantaged communities and do life with our neighbours, sharing the good news of Jesus in word and deed and creating a deep sense of community. Our teams stretch across the whole of the UK, supporting their partner churches in youth ministry, community projects, gospel outreach and discipleship, all while living within the community.
As young people are encouraged and mentored in the area, and as our teams come alongside struggling families, the atmosphere changes, leaders are raised and communities are changed for good. We are privileged to be a part of bringing transformation to communities from the inside out. Could you support our work by joining a team or giving financially to Eden?

‘The Lincoln Estate has been home for over ten years. Eden have partnered with All Hallows Bow from the beginning to enable young people to value themselves and others, raise hope for a better future and transform their community. We’re journeying with young people and their families and along the way we are discovering more of who Jesus is and who he has called us to be. It’s an adventure, it’s messy and it usually involves hot chocolate.’

‘Along with our partner church, we ran a holiday club in the summer. Around 40 children attended, many who normally wouldn’t engage with church. We provide freshly cooked meals free of charge and the kids had lots of fun. The feedback from families was so positive and many came along to church, despite belonging to different faiths. It was a great time of building relationships within the community.’

‘I recently saw a guy who I knew’d been struggling and he was in tears. He opened up and told me how his benefits had been sanctioned. He had food but no electricity. As he shared his pain I decided to use £20 from our practical need fund to top up his electricity key. He was overwhelmed by this gesture and beamed with hope! He gave me the biggest hug and I shared with him how God loved him and wanted to bless him.’
