This beautiful church was built over 170 years ago as a mission church for Brighton’s fishermen, or more likely for their wives. Set in busy West Street, close to the commercial centre of this dynamic city, Saint Paul’s is a haven of calm, beauty and devotion, offering a warm welcome to any who want to rest, to admire or to pray.


Saint Paul’s is an inclusive church and all are very welcome to worship with us. We gladly recognise that everyone, irrespective of age, colour of skin, gender, marital status, sexuality, nationality, disability or background, is a Child of God, valued and loved.
