Helen Shannon  is the Diocese of London Estates Enabler and leads the CCX development of estates mission. In 2010, she and her team planted an estates church where she lives in North London called church@five, which she still leads today. She is one of the founding trustees and Projects Director for Hope North London and is an Associate Minister at St Barnabas North London.  Her vision is for there to be a worshipping community on every estate lead by local leaders.

Steve Small  is Co-Head of Eden with his wife Sarah, they are passionate about urban mission and equipping the church to reach out. They have spent the past nine years living as part of an Eden team, planting churches, raising up local leaders and juggling family life!

Aaron Jarvis, former drug dealer and addict nearly took his life after the loss of his infant daughter. He said he walked into a church on a Sunday for a reason he couldn’t define when he was supposed to have been making a drug deal. It was at that moment he realised, “There’s got to be more to life than this.” And though he began to feel a stir in his heart to become a pastor it would be several years of struggling with the reality of God and what it meant to follow him before he would eventually become the associate pastor and then the pastor at Londonderry Baptist Church (LBC). Over the next few years LBC would grow to three congregations in Oldbury, Hurst Green and Birmingham. In the last 12 months, LBC has grown to include 16 congregations, spanning 6 nations. Aaron said repeatedly, “Only God can take the glory. Only God can.”

Ash Chafe works with Helen Shannon training leaders and working to support CCX estates.
