Welcome to the website of Calvary Evangelical Church in Brighton, UK.
We very much hope that you enjoy your visit. On these pages you will find information about the church and its activities.
We are here to preach, teach, learn and live out the good news of Jesus Christ today in the centre of Brighton.
If you are in the London Road area, we would be delighted to welcome you to one of our meetings where you can meet Jesus Christ through hearing the Bible simply explained among a caring community.
If you cannot join us in person, you may be interested to listen to some of our sermons on MP3 or read one of our newsletters. Finally, we’d be very glad to hear by email from people who have visited this site.
Near Easter we’ll be joining in with a lot of other churches in the venture called “A Passion for Life”
We’re looking forward to offering anyone and everyone a chance to get to know what the Bible really says one-to-one.
We’re using an initiative called The Word One-to-One in which people have the chance to spend one hour over a cup of coffee looking for themselves into John’s gospel.
There is no hard-sell, but rather the words of the Bible are put in the position of conveying their own authority and meaning.
If you would like to take up this offer, please contact us.
At our last church members’ meeting we were pleased to agree unanimously to ask FIEC practical services to act as “Holding Trustees” on behalf of the church. The Elders and Deacons will function as “Managing Trustees” i.e. be responsible for daily affairs of the church in the normal way. This step is further progress in “Buying the Building”
Also – more information has gone out to various friends old and new who might value the opportunity to support this venture.
We are aiming to raise £162500 to purchase the freehold from the Railway Mission
The Railway Mission is the historic umbrella body for christian work to the railway community - previously in railway centres through local Mission Halls, and now in the railway industry at large by means of regional Chaplains.

As a growing church we were pleased to welcome Julia and Sylvia into church membership last Sunday. This is in addition to Lindsay who was welcomed in during December 2013. We are really grateful to the Lord for growing and strengthening our church family.
