Welcome

Our Mission is to be a church community that is welcoming, outward-looking and outward-reaching, rooted in prayer and worship.

We are an inclusive Anglican Church in the Catholic Tradition on the West side of the River Exe in Exeter. You are very welcome to join us at any of our services and events - please see 'What's On?' for details or explore our website and find out more about us and our team.

The online Zoom Service is at 5pm on the first Sunday of the month (also accessible by phone) and we will continue to send out pewsheets to those in residential care.
There is also a traditional service of Holy Communion in church every Wednesday at 10am.

Private Prayer

The church is open for times of reflection and prayer from 10-3 Monday to Friday. You are very welcome to sit for a time in this holy space and to light a candle.

Community Larder

In the wider community, we have joined together with local ministers from St Thomas Methodist Church, St Thomas Baptist Church and Riverside, and with many other local representatives to establish a Community Larder. The Community Larder will support people and families who are experiencing reduced incomes or who have lost their jobs because of the pandemic.
