The Churches and Chapels of Brighton & Hove, Sussex - Past & Present

This page is an attempt at a complete index to the churches of the City of Brighton & Hove, and they are arranged alphabetically within denominational groupings (which are usually the denomination when the building was erected) - please tell me if I have missed any out!  Where an image is available in my albums, there will be a thumbnail linked to the pictures.  Information has been gleaned from many sources, including those listed in my Sussex Church Bibliography.  If you can complete any of the missing information, including providing pictures of demolished churches, please do contact me.
