Welcome to Brighton Unitarian Church - a sacred space in the heart of Brighton
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.
6th September: Sophia Bartlette - Forbidden music by Bloch, Weil, Schreker and Schoenberg
13th September: Geoff Robb - A new composition inspired by the trees of Sussex.
20th September: Ivana Peranic & Jon Rottenburg - Mixing evocative music from Spain and Latin America
27th September: Jessica Summers & Jelena Makarova - showcasing songs by living composers
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.
Thank you to everyone who marched with us and waved along the way at Pride this year. It was a beautiful day and a strong display of unity, diversity and love.
We love Brighton and are proud to sustain a sacred space in the heart of this vibrant city, where all faiths are welcome and all people of non mainstream sexual orientation or gender identity are welcome.
We offer same sex weddings in our church and if you are planning to be married then please think of us as an inclusive and welcoming place to hold you ceremony.
