Community Activities

Please find below the details of activities we deliver for our local community.

Morning Café

Our Morning Café takes place from 10am to 12noon every Saturday*. We serve fairly-traded tea and coffee, toast, tea cakes, cookies and soup.

It takes place in the Main Hall, accessed down the side of the church, from Chapel Street. Prettily-dressed tables are informally arranged, enabling friends or family groups to meet in comfort or individuals to enjoy a quiet moment alone.

We have several highchairs and will willingly heat your baby’s food.

Our café is run by volunteers, on a rota basis, and makes a valuable contribution to church funds as well as to the community.

We are inspected regularly by the High Peak Borough Council Food Safety Team within Environmental Health and pride ourselves on maintaining our Food Safety standards at the highest level.

there is no café on the second Saturday of July (due to the fun fair and Carnival) or the Saturday after Christmas.


If you are able to help in the kitchen or clearing tables, on a regular or occasional basis, please contact Mary Davies or any member of the café team.

We welcome young volunteers seeking work experience or undertaking community service, for example for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Full training is provided.

Babies & Toddlers Group

We run a baby and toddlers group which meets each Friday morning in term-time, 10am-11.30am, and provides an opportunity for local parents/carers and their pre-school children to get together, chat, make friends, play and enjoy a variety of organised and informal activities.

There is a dedicated area for the less mobile little ones, lots of floor-based play equipment and regular craft activities and singing.

Drinks and snacks are provided and there is a nominal charge of £1 per family to cover expenses.

If you would like to help support the group, please email

All volunteers require an enhanced DBS check.

We welcome young volunteers seeking work experience.

Uniformed Groups

We host the 6th Buxton Methodist Rainbows, Brownies and Guides Girlguiding groups at our church. Each group meets weekly during school term-time.

How to Join Us

Our groups are very popular and we often have to operate a waiting list for girls who wish to join us.

If you’d like to join our group, please go to Click on the ‘Parents’ section and go to the ‘register your daughter’ section of the website. When prompted to choose a unit, choose ‘6th Buxton’.

We will then contact you when a space is available.


For girls aged 5-7 years old.

We follow the guiding programme of activities, challenge badges and trips out, all aimed at our age group. We also attend three church services a year, as we are a sponsored unit.

Each session has a theme when we are working towards one of our badges. After about six weeks, we encourage the girls to make their Rainbow Promise and become a member of the group. At around age 7 to 7½, we help the girls make their transition up to Brownies.


For girls aged 7-11.

Brownies often work in small groups called Sixes, led by a Sixer and a Seconder. These are mixed aged groups, named after woodland creatures. They work together as a unit especially when working towards challenges or interest badges.

Interest badges can also be earned individually at home, especially for activities such as gym, dance and swimming.

Often Brownies are able to attend days out and also weekends away called Brownie Pack Holidays.

Brownies often work with their leaders to plan their programme. Any time after their 10th birthday girls can make their transition up to Guides.


For girls aged 10-14.

Guides are given the chance to explore their individual skills and abilities and try out new challenges as part of a team. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.
