Our weekly wisdom


I recently heard that Patience is the daughter of Tolerance. I thought that was an interesting phrase. Patience is very easy to have. It all depends on your EXPECTATIONS. If you expect too much from people and they don’t achieve what you expect, you will be frustrated and disappointed. When you expect someone to do a job quickly, perfectly, right the first time and they do not, then you become impatient.

Patience is allowing people to finish tasks in their own time, not yours, at their own pace, not yours, and not worrying about their distractions. Your time schedule and your standards are not the same as other people’s so relax and let them do it their way. You will let go of a lot of angst if you do.


Eden Church community links

Eden Church is actively involved in a number of organisations. Here are some of our key partners:

Eden Christian Trust

Eden Christian Trust

ECT is an Edenbridge joint churches initiative to meet the needs of young people in our area, running school clubs, secular and Christian youth clubs and organising trips away to music festivals.


The Bridges Centre

If you are out and about in Edenbridge, take a break and come into Bridges for a "cuppa" or light lunch. Relax in pleasant surroundings and meet people, or just enjoy some quiet space. Child-friendly and disabled accessible, Bridges welcomes everyone.

Parish Nursing

Parish Nursing

We talk a lot about it, but what is Parish Nursing? Parish Nursing was launched in the UK in 2006. Julie Barry works as in Edenbridge as our parish nurse with an ecumenical remit that reaches out to all our ECC partner churches in the area. Click here for more information.
