About Our Venue
Welcome to Brighton Unitarian Church, our historic grade 2 listed building located centrally in New Road, Brighton, East Sussex. It is a cultural and community space, a great location for a wide variety of concerts, theatre productions, classes, seminars and exhibitions, both during the Brighton Festival, Brighton Fringe, The Great Escape and throughout the year.
We are also pleased to conduct weddings, child namings and funerals.
Our unique and intimate concert venue has a Steinway grand piano, which hirers can use at no additional cost.
Hiring our facilities
Protocol on hirings at Brighton Unitarian Church:-
All services, ceremonies, rituals and rites of passage held in Brighton Unitarian Church must be led by recognised Unitarian worship leaders or celebrants. The church cannot be hired for services, ceremonies, rituals or rites of passage led by anyone other than established Unitarian worship leaders or celebrants.
We do not hire the church to political parties or groups. In this context ‘recognised’ refers to service leaders or celebrants known to this church or other Unitarian churches or chapels. Agreed at Committee Meeting on Jan 8th 2018.
The hirer is required to ensure that appropriate measures are in place to protect any children or vulnerable adults at the premises during the hire period, by taking all reasonable steps to ensure compliance with all appropriate statutes and guidelines, and to prevent the occurrence of any injury, loss, damage, or harm.
