We are here!

In Gloucester Place (North Laine) and Florence Road

By Mollie Tyler

One Church Brighton is a new church that has been around for years. I know that doesn't make sense but it really is true! Gloucester Place Baptist Church and Florence Road Baptist Church began many years ago.

Both Gloucester Road and Florence Road churches have been active and thriving over the years and thousands of people have been through the doors, with hundreds of children and young people attending different events and weekly activities.

On 18th July 2010 the members of both churches voted overwhelmingly to become one new baptist church.

Engaging with the city

We are trying to get more and more engaged with the whole of our city. Whatever your age, your outlook, your background or your beliefs, we hope that there is something for you at One Church. Below are some of the things we're currently doing, with the hope to do even more. All of these activities take place at Gloucester Place throughout the week, unless otherwise noted.


During the school holidays we provide a free, healthy lunch and fun activities to children and their families who struggle to eat well during the school holidays.

Jolly Tots and Tiddlers

Every Tuesday from 10:00am  to 11:30am we have two great stay and play groups for pre-school children.


A drop-in to help those under 26 seeking employment, education or training opportunities. We offer practical support as well as a listening ear and general advice.


An after school club where young people can hang out, get support with homework, play games and make new friends. We serve a free cooked dinner at 5pm both days.


One Youth Project has formed two Deeper groups that are part of the church's small group setup. These groups are aimed at helping young people work out what it means to live as a Christian young person and provide a space to be supported, listened to and challenged to grow. These groups run for school years 7-13.

JustLife Brighton

A weekly drop-in for vulnerable adults in temporary accommodation. We offer support, a hot lunch and a sense of community to help empower people in areas of housing, health and employment.


On Saturday nights we work with St Peter's and CityCoast churches to offer a sit-down hot meal for Brighton's street community. We cater for 65 people inside St Peter's hall and give out take away meals for any others who come along. It's only a small thing but we're slowly growing relationships with some great people.
