Welcome to Brighton Unitarian Church - a sacred space in the heart of Brighton
DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION THE CHURCH IS CLOSED, HOWEVER WE ARE STREAMING SERVICES AND FRIDAY CONCERTS, more info below
We have decided to close our church for Sunday services, Lunch Time Concerts and all other gatherings. This has been a very sad decision to make but it is clear now that over the coming months the more of us who stay at home the safer we will all be.
We are right now looking at ways of both recording and live streaming services and workshops.
I will be lighting my chalice at home every evening at 6 pm and praying for the world and for our Unitarian community. You may wish to do the same.
The coming months are going to be challenging but I am full of hope for us all and I have faith that we can come through this.
Blessings and best wishes, Jef Jones, Lay Pastor, Brighton Unitarian Church.
Sunday Service will now be live via Zoom. Click here to see past services.
Our Friday Lunchtime Concerts are now live streamed via our Facebook page, every Friday at 12pm.
A Perfect Venue for Heart, Soul and Music
This wonderful, creative and sacred space right in the heart of Brighton has been opening its doors to worshippers and musicians for 200 years. We have welcomed many faiths and many creators who come to enliven this amazing space. It has incredible acoustics for all voices; soloists and choirs, and scope for all sizes of bands and orchestras. It has a beautifully floor made for dancing and an interior filled with possibilities.
Many well known local musical groups practice and perform here including The Brighton Gay Men's Chorus and Hullabaloo Quire, we have drumming workshops every Monday and an Argentine Tango Milonga every Tuesday. Our venue hosts a wide range of musical genres including children's workshops with Music for Aardvarks every Thursday and Friday mornings and on Fridays this is followed by a Classical Concert featuring musicians from across the country.
We would like to share with you some of the great performances recently recorded at Brighton Unitarian and invite you to come along and enjoy a Friday Lunchtime concert, or consider us as a venue for filming your work, launching your album or for your Brighton Fringe Festival performance. Or, if you are looking for a place to hold a family or personal service, we would be delighted to help you craft something special. Please call Marion on 01273 696022
As you may imagine our Sunday Services reflect our open mindedness about the nature of existence and the power of spirit. We do pray but we also meditate and reflect on the generosity of the Universe and the beauty of the world we live in. We fight for social justice and share our views of equality and inclusivity openly, ready to speak up for our neighbours and comfort our family and friends.
Our Church is not a sombre place to sit and worship a judgemental God, but a peaceful and safe, quiet and relaxing space where you can listen to your own higher self and meet your own God of all.
The church is open during the week as well. It is open throughout the day for quiet reflection on Mondays and Thursdays, and if you have the time on a Friday lunchtime come and enjoy one of our fundraising concerts performed by classical and contemporary musicians both locally known and nationally renowned. We open our doors at 12pm for refreshments and the concerts begin at 12.30pm. Tickets are on the door with a suggested donation of £4 and the music lasts for about 45 minutes, but stays in the soul for days.
All proceeds from the concerts help us maintain this wonderful sacred space in the heart of Brighton. Thank you to everyone who joins us on a Friday and contributes to the spirit of the community here.
