Join Eden


The places in greatest need of the transforming power of Jesus are often the places where the church is in decline. So through Eden, we send and support teams of urban missionaries for these places – to live sacrificially, share the gospel and build authentic community.

By partnering with local churches, we are seeing community transformation by the love and hope of Jesus through long-term presence, proclamation and relationship.

What Is Eden?


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

We send out and support teams of urban missionaries who have responded to Jesus’ call to become downwardly mobile. Together, these teams live an incarnational lifestyle within the community showing the love of Jesus in word and deed to all in their neighbourhoods.

Each Eden Team has at least one paid team leader who is part of the staff team of the local partner church, as well as an additional five to eleven people who form the core team – each committed to the long term investment of their lives as agents of blessing in a community.
