Welcome to Eden Harpurhey

About Me

On 18 th April, Eden Harpurhey's very own Cyprian Yobera will be taking part in the Flora London Marathon. By running 26.2 miles across London , Cyprian will be raising money for the Eden project he is working on here in Manchester , and a pioneering school for Nairobi 's poorest children.

Please pray for Cyprian as he prepares for his challenge he is making the most of his early morning training sessions by prayer running Harpurhey. Our target is 28,000 which will meet the projected shortfall of 14,000 for Eden Harpurhey and pray for a brand new school building and accommodation for Anajali's orphan children in Kenya . If you would like to sponsor Cyprian, you can do so online or by sending a cheque to The Message Trust, PO Box 151, Manchester M22 4YY (ref: Marathon).

How Can You Help?

The school needs 14,000 to replace the mud building it currently uses with a more suitable timber building. This will also pay to build simple housing for three teachers and the orphans who go to the school. The Message Trust have pioneered nine Eden partnerships with local churches in the toughest parts of Greater Manchester. So far 150 urban missionaries have left their comfortable homes and jobs, moving into these deprived neighbourhoods to live as salt and light sharing the Gospel with the most vulnerable young people.

We are seeing God transform entire communities through Eden 's long term commitment to some of the most broken young people. Crime is coming down, churches are growing and hundreds of young people are being impacted by the power and love of Christ. Cyprian will be running alongside thousands of others including Jeffrey Archer, who is himself attempting to break the current fundraising record. Cyprian may not have Archer's influential friends, nor his media profile but we still think that he could raise a lot of money for these two fantastic projects.
