We both grew up in non-church-going, non-religious families. This means we think it's really important for church to be relevant and accessible to people regardless of their history or background.
We don’t think church should be a place just for the super-spiritual - we think it’s for anyone who wants to make their life on earth count and explore who God made them to be and what he wants them to do.
If you come and check us out we hope you’d find us to be a friendly and fun bunch. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we do take God seriously! We’d love to meet you, so if you do visit come and say hi!”

How to connect
A great way to experience the church is at one of our Sunday services. You're welcome just to come and observe what we do. We have activities for children, but they’re also welcome to stay with you.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask them here. If you would like to have a chat with someone say so in the message and include a phone number.
You might prefer to see what a Hub is like. If so, the best thing is to contact us so we can recommend a good Hub for you to try. Again, contact us here.
While the Sunday service is a great way to experience our community, it can mean you find yourself on the edge of a crowd. We think church is about relationships, so we need to start to get to know others and be known ourselves. It is these friendships that help encourage us on our faith and allow mutual support during tough times.
One good way to get to know others is by helping on a team. These are small groups of people who work together to make something happen. There are a number of teams that help make the Sunday service happen, and people usually serve once a month. There are also compassion teams that help people outside the church who are struggling.
Another way to get to know people is in a Hub. These smaller communities prioritise helping people to get to know one another.
We use ChurchSuite as our contact book for everyone who considers Exeter Vineyard Church as their church home. It's fully GDPR'd up and we use it to contact people with news and manage team rotas.
