Friends of St. Nicholas

St Nicholas' was awarded the Sussex Heritage Award for 2009 for the restoration work carried out on the Medieval Screen and the East and West Walls. The church is open daily to visitors.

We hold regular events including: concerts, dinners, lectures which give the members the opportunity to come together and enjoy themselves whilst supporting Brighton's ancient Mother Church and helping to safeguard its future.

Founded in 1994 the Friends of St Nicholas' Church Brighton work in partnership with the Parochial Church Council to care for the building and its history.

During the last twenty years the Friends have made grants of over £500,000 to the church council to support its work, which of course includes personal donations and legacies.

Maintenance and restoration of a medieval building is never-ending and major works have included the restoration of the Chancel ceiling, and Rood Screen, the Lady Chapel ceiling, the repair and restoration of the historical Kempe windows, the reordering of the church, repairs to the Wellington Memorial and further restoration of the stained glass and Shrine of St Nicholas in the south east corner of the church.
