Who We Are
We’re a community of Christians who gather in Heavitree in Exeter to join together to love God with everything we have, while seeking to love our neighbours in the way Jesus showed us through his life, death and resurrection.
We hope our church is a place where everyone feels welcome, and everyone has the opportunity to be inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live out their calling to be active participants in God’s work here on earth.
We’d love you to join us when we get together.
You’ll always find a warm welcome here!
City Community Church is led by a team of three people within a framework of belief that every member of the church is equal before God. We believe the Bible teaches that leadership in the New Testament church was plural, although we recognise that leadership comes in different forms and styles.
The team is a friendly and open bunch of people who have a genuine desire to serve God and to love people within and outside of CCC. Many people at the church are involved in leadership both within and outside of the church and we encourage every member playing their part together as a body and a family. As a church, we believe that both men and women should be equally involved in leadership. We also have a group within the church called ‘Guardians’, a group of wise men and women who can help advise and input into certain decisions, when needed. We also have a group of Trustees who govern the City Community Church (Exeter) Charitable Trust. The Leadership Team consists of...
