We are fortunate in having two good organists (in addition to those on the photograph adjacent!) who are willing to tackle anything and while we enjoy hymns we have sung and loved for many years, we are happy to try new worship songs and our services often have a variety of musical styles. There are other musicians who contribute to worship by playing guitars, drums and violins in the Church Band, especially at our café-style ‘Praise@6’ service in the evening of the second Sunday in each month. Our Church Choir leads the hymn-singing and sings an appropriate anthem or song most Sunday mornings, rehearsing at 10am in the main hall.
On special occasions an ad hoc orchestra is gathered of around fifteen string and wind-players who come from other churches in the area to celebrate Harvest, Spring Fair etc.
Our choir and instrumentalists make a valuable contribution to Churches Together in Buxton, joining in the Good Friday meditation of readings and music each year and leading the music at special united services.
For more information about music at Buxton Methodist Church, or to join the choir, band or orchestra please contact Christine Hodkinson.
If you wish to play the organ, please contact John Anfield or the Minister
