We love to welcome people to St Mary's and we try to keep the church open as much as possible, but we rely on volunteers to provide this service and sometimes there's a hitch that means we have to close earlier than we would like.
The hours we aim to be open are listed below. If you would like to visit outside of these times, please call us on 01273 698601. We will always try to accommodate you. And please always give us a call in advance if you're making a special trip to Brighton to see us. We would hate to disappoint you.
