EDEN CHURCH is a member of the Evangelical Alliance and an increasingly active supporter of Tearfund. Tearfund is The Evangelical Alliance Relief FUND and is a UK Christian relief and development agency, passionate about ending poverty working in over 50 countries worldwide.

“When a community lifts itself out of poverty, everything changes. Poverty does more than exhaust, starve, trap and kill people. It destroys their sense of worth, limits their horizons, robs people of the chance to reach their full potential. Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We long for new life and a new sense of worth for people. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. We work through local churches, because they’re Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person – and the whole community – inside and out.”

Please visit and browse the Tearfund Web Site, particularly the “ABOUT US” section for an introduction to what we care about and how.

TearFund celebrated it’s 50th year in 2018 and throughout the “year of jubilee” focussed on the biblical themes of restoration and release from poverty and in particular on the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Our Jubilee Year got off to a great start , having collected over £300 at the Christmas Carol Service (2017) with Gift Aid + the UK Government’s “donation match”, Eden Church was able to boost the Tearfund coffers with over £750.00

Mean Bean Time Challenge

The March Mean-Beaners were less in number this year, but still managed to raise over £250 and also meet with Fiona +a couple of her Staff colleagues at The Senedd canteen for a bit of high profile publicity!!

Bottle of Waterloo

Operation Waterloo – an ongoing 2 month bottle collection for Toilet Twinning – was extremely well supported by Eden members. Over £423 raised which with gift aid was enough for more than 8 new latrines @ £60 each AND a further 8 toilets were “twinned” by Edenites who wished to sponsor a latrine themselves!!

Big Quiz Night

With Tabs in the BIG QUIZ NIGHT. Though outnumbered 4:1 we did ourselves proud, coming a close second in the best team name competition and were consoled that the winning Tabs team scored the 3rd highest total in the whole UK! A good time was had by all and together we raised over £800 for Tearfund.
