Brighthelm is a Christian church living out its principles in partnership with the community. As part of our mission we are planning a future as a city centre focus for sustainable living.
We are part of the world-wide United Reformed Church. We especially value good relations with those of other faith groups and cherish human diversity. This inclusive outlook is a key feature of the URC, not an afterthought or a new addition.
The Brighton Central Free Church came into being when the Brighton Presbyterians joined the Dials and the Union Congregational Church in Queen Square Brighton in 1968.
Like all URC Churches, we are governed by a Church Meeting consisting of all our members, this is the decision-making body in the congregation.The Elders’ Meeting advises the Church Meeting and shares with the Minister the spiritual and pastoral oversight of the Church.Our focus is about what it means to be a good person and a good citizen with an ethical and moral concern for the poor and marginalized.
