A Church at the Heart of the Community
St Martin's church, set in the very heart of Brighton, now sharing the dedication with St Wilfred and St Alban (titles of two parishes in the former Resurrection Team) was consecrated in 1875 as the memorial to Fr. Henry Wagner, one of Brighton's longest serving vicars and builder of churches. Originally it was to have two further purposes, one to be the Garrison Church of Brighton and the other to serve the community in and around the Lewes Road. The latter remains its purpose today.

Dear Heavenly Father,
You are very holy and wonderful. Thank you for your never-ending love to us all.
Thank you for our lives and our loving family.
Forgive us for all the silly things we have done over the past few weeks.
We promise to try harder to be better.
Please protect our family and friends from the Corona virus which is causing lots of worry across the world.
Please can you look after our older population who might be anxious and afraid to be on their own: keep them well, happy and safe.
Make people think about others and not to be selfish or greedy when they are shopping for food or other groceries.
Keep us safe and well but more importantly help the Country beat this virus as soon as possible.
Here at St Martin's we are committed to good safeguarding practices, and the safety and well being of all those in our community. If you wish to raise a safeguarding concern or would like more information please contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, Claire Phelan on 01273 700361
