Why Eden?

The places in greatest need of transforming power of Jesus are often the places where the church is in decline

We send and support teams of urban missionaries for these places – to live sacrificially, share the gospel and build authentic community.

Eden teams bring transformation to their communities – from the inside out

Eden volunteers make their homes in poor neighbourhoods, sharing their lives and the gospel

Aspiration and achievement grow as young people are mentored and become disciples of Jesus

The atmosphere changes, leaders are raised, and communities are changed for good
