We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded by 1953, and we understand it is still open.

The Gospel Hall is situated on the south-east corner of the junction of Darwin Avenue and Hardwick Square South.

The first documentary evidence of its existence is the following notice in The London Gazette of 3rd March 1953 (p.1252):

A Building certified for worship named GOSPEL HALL, Hardwick Square, South Buxton, in the registration district of Chapel-en-le-Frith, in the county of Derby, was on 23rd February, 1953, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 27th February 1953.

According to Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010), its congregation belong to the Church of God. A foundation stone inside the building indicates that it dates from 1896, whilst Old Maps of 1898 and 1922 label it merely as "Ch[urch]"; however entries in Kelly's Directories between 1895 and 1932 record a Catholic Apostolic Church existed in Darwin Avenue, so it seems probable, but by no means certain, that it was built originally for its members, and was later taken over by the Church of God.

For present day information, The Church of God in Buxton have a very nice, and novel website. I found myself wondering how they achieved the effect! See also the website of Churches of God in England for their parent organisation.

Now or formerly Church of God.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
