St Peter's Anglican Church, Brighton

St Peter's Anglican Church, Brighton

St Peter's Church is a Church of England parish church in Brighton. It is near the centre of the town, on an island between two major roads. Built from 1824-28 to a design by Sir Charles Barry, it is arguably the finest example of the pre-Victorian Gothic Revival style. It has been the parish church of Brighton since 1873, and is sometimes unofficially referred to as "Brighton's cathedral".

In December 2007, after a long period of consultation, the Diocesan Pastoral Committee recommended to the Church Commissioners that St Peter's should be made redundant. On 8 May 2009, Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London, an influential Church of England parish church which created the Alpha course, agreed to take over its ownership and running. The parish of St Peter, previously merged with that of the Chapel Royal, will be reconstituted as a separate, smaller parish. Services restarted on Sunday 1 November 2009. The Vicar is Archie Coates and the Curate is Jonny Gumbel, son of Nicky Gumbel who developed the Alpha Course. St Peter's is the proud owner of a large and fine pipe organ built in 1888 for the Hampstead Conservatoire of Music by Henry Willis and brought to Brighton in 1910.
