St Mary's is a church that's fun!
Inclusive, space for everyone
We pray and serve, and care for all,
People, we love them, big and small
We worship God outdoors and in
If you're unique, you'll fit right in.


Bishop Libby Lane and the congregation in St Marys churchFor 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 starts at 10.30am     

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.
