The Diocese of Exeter is part of the Church of England. We St Andrews are part of a community of more than 25,000 people who come together in churches large and small, all over the county of Devon. The Diocese offer a Christian presence in every community – this means they offer support and prayer, worship and friendship, as well as practical help for those in need through our involvement in all sorts of  projects from foodbanks to credit unions.

There are over 600 churches in the Diocese and it covers a wide geograpical area.

 

The Diocese Vision

 ‘I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.’  Jeremiah 29.11

We seek to be people who together are:

 

Growing in prayer
We want to grow in prayer, living a life close to God. This means taking risks as we become more honest with ourselves and more honest with God. Prayer opens up deep places within us to God’s grace which is why it is such a life-giving activity. Growing in prayer is essential if we are to witness to God’s Kingdom and become the people God has called us to be.

 

Making new disciples
A disciple is someone who follows Jesus Christ. With him as our companion and guide we can travel through life differently, and we hope others will share the adventure with us. We want to be more faithful in our discipleship and allow God to shape our priorities and values. The Christian gospel is good news and we need to find new ways of telling the story, of explaining the faith and giving a reason for the hope that is in us.

 

Serving the people of Devon with joy
We want to make a difference in the world and witness to God’s love and justice, especially in the communities and schools where we live. Working in partnership with others who are transforming lives, we seek to address the global issues confronting our generation so that everyone may flourish.

The new Vision was set out by Bishop Robert at diocesan synod in March 2016. He and Bishop Nick and Bishop Sarah are spending nine months travelling around the diocese, visiting people, projects and parishes and talking with communities about the vision to grow the Church in Devon.
