BHOD 13 - St Paul’s Church-Open Door

Description - St Paul is one of the most impressive churches in Brighton and its construction in 1846-48 signified the final victory of the gothic style. The church was originally intended to serve the poorer population of the western part of the old town. However, for some years after it was built, it was crowded with fashionable folk as well as fishermen. It was the first church in Brighton to promote the Tractarian movement, which called for the revival of Catholicism in the Church of England. St Paul is home to Safe Space, a rescue point operated on Friday and Saturday by the YMCA and Red Cross, to help those in need on those evenings. Street Pastors are also based at St Paul's. The building has the largest collection of Pugin stained glass in the Church of England. Come along to see this magnificent legacy as well as windows by Kempe.
