Who We Are
Our vision at CCC is to be an outward – looking church, continually growing in our faith, our discipleship and our unity, with Christ as our head. As part of the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:12) we believe that Jesus gives gifts to the church to edify and unify, (Eph 4:7 and Romans 12:4). We want to be a church that is moving forward, discipling people to the cross as we live out our faith, each playing our part with our specific gifts in growing God’s kingdom in the communities that we are daily living in, as well as reaching out to Heavitree and the whole city. We recognise that everyone is on a journey and our desire is that others are drawn to Jesus and that they in turn disciple others so that we move into all that God has for us. We believe that God speaks and that he is continually unveiling his specific “blueprint” for our church as we partner with Him.
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...
