'The mission of the Modbury Mission community is to connect people to God by helping them come to and grow in faith in Jesus.
As Jesus said before he left the disciples: ' Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
The tools that God has given us to make disciples are the Bible and prayer:
The Lord Jesus comes down the ladder of his Word, the Bible, to comfort and challenge his people.
Prayer is when we ask God to do what he has promised to do: ‘Build his Church’
And so the vision is set, the tools have been given. We want the Lord Jesus to be better known in our community and churches.'

About Mission Communities
There are around 120 mission communities across the Diocese of Exeter. We aim to be mission-oriented, community-focussed and locally-rooted. As God’s people we are called to live out our faith and continue the mission of God as revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Communities are how we relate to one another. We discover both what we need from others and what we can offer so that all may flourish. In the same way Mission Communities help us as the Church to work together across boundaries and break down a sense of isolation. They enable us to be flexible in our mission and more adept at responding to the different contexts and cultures of Devon.
Not every parish can offer every aspect of the Church’s life and ministry, but by joining in partnership with neighbouring churches and forming a Mission Community we can work together more effectively. This will involve a commitment to:
- regular prayer and worship
- pastoral care
- evangelism and mission,
- opportunities for learning, teaching, nurture and growth for disciples of all ages youth and children’s work and worship
- equipping members for ministry and the development of ministry teams
- ensuring our churches are safe places for all God’s people by working together to prevent abuse
- connecting with the local community especially in service to the marginalised
- good administration and stewardship of time, resources and buildings
