One Moment in Time

Celebrating 200 years of St Peter's, Brighton's unofficial cathedral

Share your story and contact us –

We are reaching out to the local community to gather narratives that may have been overlooked or forgotten from the past 200-years. Whether you have a personal connection with St. Peter’s, know someone who does, or have heard stories passed down through generations, we invite you to share them with us.

As we approach the 200-year anniversary of the foundation laying stone of St. Peter’s Church, we are launching the ‘One Moment in Time’ project. This initiative aims to collect and share the untold stories of 200 people who have connected to St. Peter’s over the past two centuries. We have a particular focus on working class heritage stories.

Your story could involve significant events such as baptisms, weddings, or moments of solace found within our church, or simply be a fond memory of community gatherings and events.

In time, we will seek to capture these stories in various formats, including written accounts, recorded interviews, or personal anecdotes. In the first instance, we’d love to hear from you and a short bit about your story. Your involvement will help us preserve and share the diverse history of our church and community.

This project is funded by Historic England as part of the Everyday Heritage – Working Class Histories. We are grateful to them for this funding.
