Welcome to St Andrew's Brighton
Thank you for accessing our website. We are a parish looking forward into a future where we are confident that Christ is present. St Andrew's is committed to the local community, dedicated to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and serving the community in promoting wholeness in personal and family life.
Our Mission is to nurture and enable you to build your relationship with God and each other.
Our Vision is to be a joyful and welcoming place of worship, reaching out and nurturing all age groups in their journey of faith.
If you are not already a member or attend a service at St. Andrew’s we invite you to join us on this journey into the future. In our present life we are seeing the fruits of this confidence with seekers regularly coming to our church, older members of the congregation forming valuable community, and younger families attracted to our Children's Church programme, our Andy Bear's Playgroup and our Mainly Music programme.
Our Education Committee creates and supports opportunities for people of all ages to gain knowledge and nurture in their faith. By linking Christian Study with our worship we are able to discern what God wants us to be, then we can build a framework for action. Study courses
St Andrew's has been serving the Bayside community since 1842 and we are blessed with wonderful facilities that aid us in our mission. St Andrew's is seen as the community's church and so we host many baptisms, weddings, and funerals for the local community and those further afield.
