Plastic-Free Pledge

In February 2020, Rev Andrew Parker, on behalf of Buxton Methodist Church, signed Transition Buxton’s plastic-free pledge. The pledge initially involves removing three items of single-use plastics from the church (and all of its room hirers). The three items chosen are cling film (and equivalents), plastic containers for cleaning products and single-use biros. This will be achieved by ceasing to use them, using sustainable alternatives and reusing refillable items.


Energy Use

Our Property Committee has worked to reduce the church’s energy consumption by using LED lights, better batteries, draught lobbies and by making improvements to our windows. Furthermore, we installed solar panels in 2017.



There is a set of Transition Buxton’s hard-to-recycle item bins by our kitchen. The items you can put in the bins include crisp, other snacks and confectionary packaging, dental products and their packaging, biros and baby food pouches. See the bin lid labels for further details.
