Eden for Internationals
A guide to Eden for those new to the UK
A big welcome to you if you are new to the UK. We hope you will enjoy your time in Cambridge, and at Eden.
The verses at the top of the page summarise our hopes for internationals at Eden. We long that newcomers, and people who are not from the UK will be loved and looked after in our church. We want to include you in all that we do, and we seek to support you as you live away from family and friends.
We know that God wants people from every nation to know and follow Him, and so we have a passion to see this starting to happen in our church. We know that it doesn't matter to God whether we are British, or whether we were born somewhere else.
At Eden we want you to feel at home in the church and to feel a part of it, so we encourage you to get involved in whatever ways you would like to, even if they are not specifically for internationals. See the list of activities on the left of the page to see what you would like to join. There are things for people of all ages: children, young people, students, mums, families and older people. We hope you make lots of friends in these groups.
However, we also recognise that one way we can support internationals at Eden is by bringing you together with other internationals, so that you can support and help each other. So we do have a few specific things for internationals:
There are many other things for internationals in Cambridge. There are cafes for you to make friends and to practise your English, there are Bible discussion groups to find out more about Christianity, and there are one-off events and holidays throughout the year.

I hope you are richly blessed during your time in Cambridge and at Eden, and I hope to meet you soon!
