Upcott is a Christian charity committed to providing an environment where young people can experience the fulness of Jesus in their lives.

Many young people from St Michael’s have attended Upcott Weeks over the years. Some have helped on weeks or done gap years and others are now serving as trustees.

The Trust is in a period of transition. For over fifty years the work was based in a residential environment, the original Upcott in Seaton, Devon between 1968 and 2007 and then The Beacon in Minehead from 2007 to 2019. But with the sale of The Beacon we are moving into a new phase. We will continue to run residential weeks. To that we have added on-line discipleship and study groups, enabling young people to have a vibrant relationship with Jesus that is outworked on a daily basis. We are also developing online resources to further support young people in their relationship with Jesus.
