Honiton Deanery

The Diocese of Exeter is divided into areas  called deaneries.  Uplyme Church is part of the Honiton Deanery here in East Devon.  The Deanery has regular meetings called Deanery Synods.  Through the vicar and our Deanery Representatives, we support the wider work of the Deanery, collaborating on projects and contributing to the life of the church.

Diocese of Exeter

In the Church of England the whole of England is divided into areas called diocese.  We are part of the Diocese of Exeter and the diocesan offices are in Exeter (near to the cathedral).  The diocese offer us pastoral and legal support through our bishops and archdeacons.  They offer us support for our historical church building, schools, training as well as support in all sorts of other areas.
