Over the years we've met in a number of different places - including an Anglican Church and a local charity HQ (Click on the "Missions" tab above for more about the charity). In 2008, by God's grace, we were able to purchase this imposing 19th century former Methodist Chapel which is where we meet to this day.
You're assured a warm welcome at Buxton Community Church. If you live in Buxton or the surrounding area (or even if you are just visiting this lovely part of the world) why not join our Sunday worship?
Are you looking for a church where everyone is perfect? Where children remain silent and sit in their seats - as 'good as gold' - all through the service? Where 'regulars' frown at folks who 'dress funny' or have 'strange hairstyles' or tattoos? Then maybe we're not the church for you.
You'd be very welcome - of course - but then so is everyone else!
We're a church made up of ordinary, imperfect people - with every background imaginable.
Rather than being a place where people who feel far from God are met with shame, guilt, and condemnation, Jesus leads us to be a family that extends His grace, mercy, and forgiveness to everyone. No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have, we want you to be a part of the family.
Come, check us out. We don't bite. We're just ordinary folk who love God and do our best to love each other. Come see us on Sunday and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before the service) Click on the 'Diary' tab for the times of our services and to see details of other meetings and events.
We are meeting again in the building!
During these uncertain times we want you to feel welcome and safe when worshiping with us at Buxton Community Church. Whilst many of the restrictions are being lifted, we are aware that some may have different opinions about this so, in the spirit of ‘love one another’, we are advising that people continue to maintain a social distance. Face coverings, whilst optional, may still be worn if it allows you to feel comfortable and we shall continue to keep the doors open to aid ventilation. Track and Trace will still be encouraged for the time being – either by the app or by filling out a form. God bless you.
