Can I still support this campaign if I’m not part of a Life Group?
If you’re not part of a life group, we would love to connect you to one! Please email [email protected]. If this is not possible right now for any reason and you would still like to support our campaign, you can give directly by clicking ‘Give To The Campaign’ on the main campaign page chimp.net/campaigns/eden-cafe-lifegroup-challenge.
Why can’t I see my group on the campaign page?
The list only shows the four most active groups, so you might need to click on ‘See All Groups’ to see the full list. Also make sure your group is not set as private, or it won’t show up in the campaign groups. You can change this by editing your group settings.

I am travelling all of July and August but would still like to support my Life Group, can I just give directly without selling anything?
We really encourage you to join in as we, as a church, examine our possessions and ask God to reveal what we don’t have need of and what we can give up for His kingdom. But if that is not possible for any reason, you could think about sacrificing money you were saving up to buy something that you might not need, or you can of course donate money to the campaign through your life group page as normal!

How to Give
How do I give from my group page?
In order for your donations to count towards your group’s total, you need to give through the group page. Start by navigating to your group page and then clicking on the blue GIVE TO THIS GROUP button. If you choose to give through the main Eden Cafe fundraiser page, it will not be associated with your Life Group page.
Do I need a pre-loaded balance to give?
Although CHIMP does have a feature that allows you to pre-load a balance into your account, it’s not necessary if you would like to make a donation through your group page. Simply enter the amount on the give form and choose your name from the dropdown menu under “Personal Account”.
