About Buxton URC

As part of the Christian Church, the United Reformed Church believes in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

United Reformed Church:

This was created through a series of unions bringing together English Presbyterians, English, Welsh and Scottish Congregationalists and members of the Churches of Christ. One hundred thousand people make up 1600 congregations, with more than 700 ministers.

The church has recently welcomed back its classic 19th century Broadwood grand piano, given by regular worshippers in the 1930s. Set in its new home in the main body of the church, the piano is now available to local musicians. It was given its first public airing during morning service:
