Connecting to God, our true selves and others
We invite you to come and be part of our community of faith. Our mission is to encourage one another in growing nearer to God, growing closer to our true selves in God and growing in our ability to reach out in love.
There are various and evolving groups within the wider Buckingham church community that provide avenues for deeper reflection & learning, socializing, personal and social transformation, engagement with our neighbors, the creative arts, and more. Many of these groups are organized and led by volunteer leaders from within the congregation while others are led by our Pastor or the Vocal Music Leader.
