At St Peter and St Paul, we know there is more to life than just what happens within the walls of our building. We are part of a local community and a global community, and God cares about both and wants the church to be a vessel for change and positive growth.

The Community Lunch
The Community Lunch is what people will tell you never exists - a free meal!  Every Tuesday between Noon and 1.15pm we turn the Church into a restaurant and offer a full meal of Soup, a main and a pudding with tea or coffee thrown in - all totally free.  We do ask for donations towards the cost from those that can afford it.

We usually welcome around 60-70 people every week from across all ages and it is a wonderful time to meet new people and for those who may struggle with loneliness to be amongst others.  We even have a minibus that taxis people to lunch.

There is a wonderful team of volunteers in the kitchen (more always welcome!) and you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome.

The Food Bank

We run our own food-bank collecting non-perishable food for distribution via our warehouse facility by volunteers.

If you are in need of a food box please note the following:

i) We only cover North Bucks ( i.e north of Winslow ) . Aylesbury Food Bank covers south of Winslow.
ii) We do not deal with requests direct from the public, any such calls should be directed to the Citizen's Advice Bureau who will carry out an assessment of need.
 

Buckingham Parish Church is passionate about being actively involved in the community and The Centre is one of the most exciting developments in recent years. Located in the Buckingham Town Centre it allows for the development of current community outreach activities as well as opening opportunities for new ones.

The building is also being used by other groups who share the vision for making The Centrea place of warmth, compassion and friendship: helping to build a caring and supportive community Weekly events include:

Coffee and Company
Coffee and Company every morning Monday to Thursday between 10 am and 12 noon. Drop in for a coffee and some company, especially if you are on your own. There will always be someone to chat to. Why not bring your friends along and enjoy a warm relaxing atmosphere where you can wile away the morning.

Tea and Chat takes place every Monday between 2.30 pm and 4 pm. Call in and enjoy a cup of tea and even a piece of cake. This is a great opportunity to meet and make new friends. Our team of volunteers will give you a warm welcome and would love to get to know you.
