Million for Mission

Watch the video below to see how the Diocese of Exeter’s ‘Million for Mission’ fund helped parishes to serve their communities and welcome thousands of new people to the Church of England in Devon.


The Mission Community Development Team

Who are we and what do we do?

The Mission Community Development Team in is place to help parishes that are exploring their Mission Community status in a variety of ways: some will be at the early stages of forming a Mission Community; some will already be ‘commended’ and need help to move to ‘celebrated’ status. Some are celebrated and are now considering ways to formalise their life and work together.

How can we help?

  • We offer all Mission Communities that are ‘commended’ the opportunity to work towards ‘celebrated’ status by establishing an agreed Mission Action Plan with them.
  • We support Mission Communities to establish and subsequently develop an effective ministry team of lay and ordained ministry.
  • We provide information and opportunities to develop a wide range of leadership skills for lay people (in partnership with clergy) in their Mission Communities and parishes.
