“Love one another, as I have loved you” (Jn.15: 12)

A very warm welcome to our Sacred Heart parish website. We are a vibrant and welcoming community of over 600 worshippers here in the centre of Hove.

As a Roman Catholic Parish we belong to the Deanery of Brighton & Hove, the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton and the Universal Church under the leadership of Pope Francis. Our doors are open to welcome all who wish to join us for our Sunday services.

We have programmes & groups that run through the year to help children, young adults and adults prepare to receive Baptism, Holy Communion, and the other Sacraments of the Church. We are committed to creating a safe environment for all, in which every person, especially the young and the most vulnerable, can be allowed to flourish.

We also value greatly building good relationships with other Christian churches locally, other religions and the wider community of which we are part. St Augustine said 1500 years ago that “Our hearts are restless, until they rest in God!”.

Testimonies from Adults Baptised /Confirmed this Easter

"I really enjoyed our RCIA program especially as we were all meeting together as brothers and sisters in Christ outside of mass. I felt a common purpose and unity between us as we all travel along our paths to our Lord. I particularly enjoyed meditating on Scripture." Robert

"RCIA is more than a course, it's a testimony of God's presence among us. The course carried me towards my baptism with joy, support and respect. Respect not only for the Word, the Church or Jesus, but respect for life. More than respect, the group was actually understanding me through the way God sees me. Because of this, I came to a better knowledge of myself. Since going to RCIA my heart is full of gratitude. Life is amazing and so is RCIA!" Maelle
