—Martin Luther King Jr

During the current lockdown each Sunday we worship using "Zoom". Please contact Rev Andrew or Rev Keith for more details.

High Peak Partnership welcomes you.

Welcome to the High Peak Partnership which is the amalgamation of the Buxton Methodist Circuit, High Peak Methodist Circuit  and Whaley Bridge Uniting now with a total of fourteen churches. It was formed in September 2019  and  is part of the Manchester & Stockport District of the Methodist Church in Britain.

It is a large, mainly rural area with Churches in Derbyshire, Cheshire & Staffordshire a number of which are also in the Peak District National Park. The churches are also interestingly in three separate government regions these being East Midlands, West Midlands & North West England.

While the majority of our churches are in the Methodist tradition the Whaley Bridge Uniting Church includes Baptist Union & United Reformed Church members.

Our worship is varied and with each of our churches you are assured of a warm welcome. More details about our churches can be found on this website.

Our circuit share two superintendent ministers the Rev Keith Sandow and the Rev Andrew Parker

News about High Peak Partnership

Offer of help.

In this time of closed churches and possible isolation, people who have computers , tablets or the like can at least contact friends by these means. Sadly it is a time where online scams are prevalent often using Coronavirus as the key word in the scam.

 I am willing and able to help anyone who reads this in distinguishing what is legitimate and what isn’t. I also extend the offer of help to anyone who is having IT problems.

Anyone who wants to contact me is welcome on the email address below.

If I don’t know the answer I probably know someone who does.

 All contact will be at a distance  and at no cost.

It does this through:

The Church exists to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care.

The Church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice.

The Church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ
