Where we are
The Ringsash Circuit is set in the heart of beautiful Mid Devon countryside, situated between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks and the dramatic North and picturesque South Devon coastlines.
This area of Devon is known for its rolling hills, hidden woodlands, rivers and verdant valleys, teeming with wildlife. Local restaurants, cafes and farm shops make the most of the high quality local produce on offer.
The quality of the natural environment is matched by the richness of its cultural heritage with the historic cathedral City of Exeter 30 minutes away linking the area to rest of the country with the M5, mainline station and international airport.
We have four churches in our Circuit and we would very much welcome you to come along to any of the activities that take place.
The Ringsash Circuit has a long and rich history, dating back to to the early 1800s. For more information about how the our circuit was founded, and about the history of each of our churches, click the link below.
what we believe
One God, Creator of heaven and earth
Unity is central, for Jesus says the world will believe when they see we are one
Reconciliation, being reconciled to God only through Jesus Christ
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross; dying in our place, paying the price of sin and conquering death, so reconciling us back to God.
Deity of Jesus Christ, who is the eternal Son of God
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God (John 1:1). Jesus stepped into His own creation (John 1:14), born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18) and lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15). He gave His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). His death atoned for our sins (Hebrews 9:15; 22).
Obedience to God's Word
We know that we are followers of Christ and love Him as children of God when we are obedient to His word.
Christ bore our sins making atonement on the cross at Calvary
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
The Holy Spirit, the 3rd Person of the Godhead, the counsellor and comforter guaranteeing God's people salvation
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the Third Person of the Godhead, the Holy Trinity. The Holy Spirit is received through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 2:37-38). He is the guarantee of salvation who assures us of our adoption by God the Father and we have been given the right to be called children of God. The Holy Spirit is the giver of gifts for building up the body of Christ, the Church and our lives, when lived in the Spirit will produce fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).
Resurrection of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion on the third day, witnessed by hundreds
Image bearers, all people are created in God's likeness, therefore life is sacred
We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; We follow Christ’s example, believing every person should be treated with love, dignity and respect (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10).
New creation is what we become when we repent and believe in Jesus
When we trust in Jesus Christ and come to Him in repentance and faith we are baptised. Through this act of obedience to His Word we are brought into the family of God, adopted by God, and called sons and daughters of the living God. The Holy Spirit affirms with our spirit that we belong to Him, for we cry Abba Father (Romans 8:15). When we are born in the Spirit (John 3: 1-21) we become a new creation, for the old has gone and the new has come (2 Cor 5:17).
Everyone is destined to die once and then comes judgement
Scripture is the inerrant and inspired Word of God, useful for teaching and correction
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are the supreme authority inspired by God for His people. They are reliable and trustworthy for faith, life and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
