About Us

The Exeter group has a very large mailing list including people from across Devon and into Somerset. We intend to hold one or two, occasionally more, meetings with a speaker each year. In 2017 we have now held two.

Our convenor, Liz Vizard would welcome contact from anyone who would like to set up another group in Devon, in their home or other venue. She can make this known to the large mailing list and find any interested in joining you. Liz’s contact details are above. You would be responsible for contacting any who respond and for setting up the group meetings, linking with PCN Britain and so on.

Preparations were well advanced for a visit to our group next year by PROFESSOR TERRY EAGLETON, Distinguished Professor of English Literature at Lancaster University, who has a great interest in the place of faith in society and the understanding of theology, derived partly from his Roman Catholic roots. Sadly, Prof Eagleton has become unwell and now feels unable to commit to any engagement in 2018.  We wish him a good recovery and look forward hopefully to the privilege of meeting him in Exeter at a later date. 

Venue & Meeting Times

Usually in the hall at the rear of Southernhay Church Exeter, Dixs Field, EX1 1QA

Group History

The seeds of our group were planted back in 2004 when the then Chair of PCN Britain, Hugh Dawes, led a day conference at Southernhay entitled ‘Breaking Out’.  One of the many who attended that day was a certain Liz Vizard who subsequently agreed (she still has the bruises) to co-ordinate a local Exeter PCN Group.  Since then Liz has nurtured the group which has grown under her excellent and much appreciated guidance.

Liz will continue to maintain our extensive emailing list.  If you’d like to be included (or removed), just email her.
