Welcome to St Joseph & St John the Baptist Catholic Churches

We are a vibrant and welcoming Catholic community in Brighton, with a vision to form disciples of Jesus Christ, to love others,
and to serve our city.

Social Outreach and Community Building - The Fitzherbert Community Hub

We work in partnership with our three local grassroots charities, Voices in Exile, Brighton Table Tennis Club and Real Junk Food Project, to run the Fitzherbert Community Hub and cafe.

Try Alpha?

Alpha is a space where you can ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask: a course that explores faith, meaning and purpose.

Get Involved

We are a community serving each other and the local area – whether it’s through welcome, making coffee, music, DIY, or families ministry, joining a Team can be a great way to serve God, build friendship, and make a difference. 

The Alpha course

A great opportunity to find out more
to explore or deepen faith.
