The Diocese of Exeter is part of the Church of England. We are a community of more than 25,000 people who come together in churches large and small, all over the county of Devon. We offer a Christian presence in every community – this means we 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.
