Eden Fir Vale

Hello!

Eden Fir Vale are a team of volunteer youth and community workers who live in Fir Vale, Sheffield, and follow Jesus. If you live here too, you might have seen us in your school assemblies, running youth groups, or just out and about! We want to see Fir Vale thrive, and we do whatever we can think of to make that happen; whether it’s providing free maths tuition, throwing a barbecue or creating spaces for people to hear Jesus’ message for themselves

 

We’re part of the national Eden Network and supported by our STC Sheffield church family, especially those who live at this end of the city and have been blessing our community for years. We’re funded by lots of generous individuals, and by the J G Graves Charitable Trust.

 

The best part of being on an Eden team is the unofficial side: living in and belonging to our Fir Vale community. Chats in the street, water fights, interpreting letters, day trips to the beach, praying and worshipping together, pancake parties and much more! Scroll through the coloured blocks below to see what other more regular activities we’re involved with.

 

There’s so much more we’d love to tell you – a double decker complete with climbing wall, our annual Christmas story lantern walk, the Higher tour, and joining in Streets of Light…so feel free to have a good scroll through our Facebook page and see what else we’ve been up to recently!

 

Giving

Building community takes more time than it does money. But we do get through quite a lot of hot chocolate, felt-tips and self-raising flour, so if you’d like to support us with a one-off or regular donation, that would be wonderful! In all seriousness, hiring space for clubs and paying a team leader does take some generosity to keep going and we are so thankful to our supporters – past, present, and future. If you would like to make a donation, or commit to regularly support us, please click this link.

  • Kids
    For several years we ran an after-school club, Shout, a high-energy mix of games, songs, Bible stories and shaving foam pies (in the face). We've missed it, and it looks like it could be making a comeback very soon... watch this space!
  • Schools Work

    Usually only a privileged audience of school kids in assembly get to see our Oscar-worthy acting, as we share what Christians believe about all sorts of things. But we've been recording them recently, so enjoy! We also work with small groups on topics like friendship and anger management, and join in special events.

  • Maths

    Not entirely sure how this happened but we also give free one-on-one maths tuition now! We know it's no fun if you're struggling to keep up in school, and maths is genuinely one of our favourite things, so we've loved getting this project going with our team of tutors and teachers.

  • Youth

    Nearly always involves talking about faith while our creations are baking in the oven. Sometimes involves staying in a barn, zorbing and lots of mud.
