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.

 

Eco Church:

We are proud to have earned the Eco Church Bronze Award recognition of our work to show that the gospel is good news for God's earth and to incorporate green issues in the life of the church.

 

German Partner Church:

We are pleased to be in partnership with the Auferstehungskirche, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. The two congregations share news, include each other in prayers and, when possible, visit each other.

 

Activities:

Several different groups meet at our church including...

For young people - Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers

Lunch Club - first Thursday of the month

Home Group - Monday evenings

For more details of these activities and other events at the URC, please see our magazines.

 

Here are some of the activities we're involved in. Click the photos to enlarge...

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 by organist Mary during morning service:

Jennie, a teacher and one of our non-serving elders, recently returned for a second visit to a school in Kolkata, based under a flyover where many of the children live. Read her fascinating blog here (click on picture):

We recently welcomed a group of visitors from a church in Buxton, Guyana – and some of their friends and family from Buxton in Canada. Who knew!
