About Us

Jesus said: “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10

Here at Isca, we don’t pretend to ‘have it all together’.  Instead, we’re all journeying together as we discover what it means to live the full life which Jesus died and rose again to give us.  We believe that, through Jesus and His Spirit, we can break from our past, receive healing and restoration, and be empowered to fulfil the good purposes which God has planned for us.

Our heart is to develop a strong and fruitful community within our church and with those who live around us, which means simply that we’re eager to share life with others in Exeter!  In May 2015 we took the bold step of taking over a closed youth centre, and through God’s grace and the enthusiastic work of many people, we’ve transformed it into a thriving, welcoming, and award-winning community centre: The Beacon.

You can delve into everything that goes on at The Beacon Community Centre by visiting our website here. There truly is something for everybody, so we welcome you to get exploring!  

At Isca Church:

  • We want to take risks in faith.
  • We’re prepared to be fluid in our approach to church, responding flexibly to God’s guidance and to the needs of those around us.
  • We’re ready to get our hands messy to serve others.
  • We’re keen to connect with people who are yet to experience God’s love, and to be a place of belonging for everyone, no matter what.
  • We trust the Bible completely – surrendering our desire to ‘know-it-all’ in order to allow God to reveal understanding in His timing.
  • We value the growth of God’s Kingdom here on earth and we do everything for the name and glory of Jesus Christ!
