Buxton Methodist church has always been involved in charitable work and outreach in the local community, throughout the UK and abroad.

Church members regularly organise fundraising events to raise funds for charitable causes that reflect Christian values. The extensive premises are used throughout the week by many church and community groups and are often used for fundraising events and concerts.

Each year the Church Council allocates 10% of its voluntary giving to charitable causes.

Local Outreach

For the local community, we host a weekly morning cafe and a term-time babies and toddlers group for parents to come together for support and social time.

Church activities also raise funds for local groups such as:
