About us

Our story

We began life as a small Open Christian Brethren group meeting in a ‘not fit for purpose’ building along Broadway. We moved into our present building in 1969, and although our meetings have changed dramatically our heart for following Jesus wholeheartedly has and for the local community and  not.

Our church family is made up of folks from Woodbury, Exmouth, and a number of other villages around East Devon. We desire to be a community where we are on a journey of getting to know Jesus better and being changed by him, and we want to bring the light of Jesus and the love of God to East Devon.

We are an Independent Free Evangelical Church linked to Partnership and the Evangelical Alliance.

Our building

The church although originally built in 1851 has since been through a few transformations and was completely refurbished and extended in 2002/3. This has given us level access into the main body of the church and toilet facilities for the disabled. We also have a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.

 Our leadership

The church has a Leadership Team which is made up of both men and women, all with special skills and abilities, who are responsible for the various aspects of church life.
