Welcome and What’s on

Welcome to Saint Michael & All Angels, Brighton.

Saint Michael’s is an inclusive church in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England and welcomes everyone. 

In response to Covid 19, our pattern of worship and pastoral care is changing and further information is found on this page.

Supporting and Helping the Church

During this difficult time we need you support and help. Our enforced closure during the COVID-19 lockdown means that we’re facing an unprecedented reduction in voluntary donations and income from rentals and events. As such, we need to raise an additional £10,000 this year, so PLEASE donate whatever you can today to help us reach our appeal target. Thank you.

Further information can be found on our ‘Support Us’ page and the direct link to our  donation page is here.

Letter from the Vicar Regarding the Resumption of Public Worship   

Dear Friends,

We are finally able to resume public worship and there will be a said Mass on Sunday at 10.30 am and on Friday at 11.00 am.

Please see the Mass Times page for more information.

Please do note that social distancing guidelines must be observed, any socialising must be done away from the church building and there will be no toilet facilities. (further guidance is attached to this letter).

The Benefice Mass will be continued to be streamed on Facebook at 9.30am and later uploaded to Youtube.

As was announced last Sunday, Bishop Martin has asked me to become the Vicar of Durrington, which I have accepted. As yet details of when I will leave the Benefice are still to be finalised, but in the meantime, I would be grateful for your prayers as I will continue to pray for you.

With my love and prayers
Father Robert
