St Mary's Facebook  This  page will soon be phased out, but information about St Mary’s is also available on the Buxton Team Parish Facebook page:- Buxton Parish Facebook

For just over 100 years, St Mary’s has served people in the Higher Buxton and Cote Heath community.  It was completed in 1917, and is built in the arts and crafts style.

The lovely grounds contain a garden of remembrance, as well as a memorial to those killed in the First World War.

Our style of worship appeals to people of all ages, from families with young children who enjoy our  Sunday Club to people seeking a fairly traditional style of service.

Visitors are always made very welcome, especially those who may not have much experience of going to church. 

Sunday service times

10.30am         Family Communion

6.00pm           Evensong

St Mary’s is a relaxed and friendly place, and everyone enjoys the opportunity to chat over coffee after the service; we also get together for various social and fundraising events throughout the year.

We also have various groups which are always keen to welcome new members:

  • Music Group which plays at services and also performs a very popular Folk Carols concert every December (contact Eric Butterley on 01298 23249)
