Buxton Community Church is a group of people aiming to focus our lives on one thing – hosting the presence of Jesus. From this standpoint we aim to love each other, love Buxton and beyond.
BUXTON COMMUNITY CHURCH VISION
OUR CORE VALUES
We aim to prioritise the presence of God in our lives and make time to focus on the ‘one thing’. Seeking after God’s presence and making God welcome is the most important part of our lives. As a result of this ‘one thing’ we will be able to understand our identity more in reflection of who God is. As a church we aim to be a house of prayer and enable people to connect with God by organising day/nights/weekends of prayer and fasting, having time set aside for worship and creativity, and relevant teaching series’ aimed at seeing and encountering God through the bible.
As a church we want to live our lives as an extended family – a family of God. By intentionally loving each other and creating a culture of encouragement, we want to spur one another on to grow in our relationship with God, through Jesus, and with one another. By being a part of Even Streams (small groups), having a regular pattern of celebration, testimony evenings, and social events such as games nights, film nights or garden parties we commit to establishing a culture of belonging and discipleship.
We believe that, as a family of God, actively loving our community and serving our community is a biblical way to live. By blessing our town of Buxton and being involved with, and supporting, overseas projects we want to show the generosity of God in all we do. Locally we provide a pre-crawling baby group, a toddler group and a home for Buxton Baby Bank. We also put on family activities throughout the year.
