The Church of the Holy Trinity is a Greek Orthodox church in Brighton, part of the English city of Brighton and Hove. Built in 1838 in Carlton Hill, it was an Anglican church for most of its life: dedicated to St John the Evangelist. After some uncertainty about its future, it was sold to Brighton’s Greek Orthodox community in 1985 and has been used as their permanent place of worship since then. Reflecting its architectural and historical importance, it has been listed at Grade II since 1971. Since the Greek Orthodox community acquired the building, some interior alterations have been made, including the installation of a new altar screen. It has been licensed for worship in accordance with the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 and has the registration number 79056. The church was badly damaged by fire in July 2010. In the early afternoon of Sunday 4 July, fire spread from the ground floor through to parts of the roof. There were no casualties. Although there was no structural damage,the entire interior was gutted causing £500,000 worth of damage. Built in brick (in a Flemish bond pattern) with some stone dressings, the church has a stuccoed southern frontage, facing Carlton Hill. A deep central recess is flanked by two prominent wings with entrance door and large stone pilasters, above which is a pediment with an embedded clock. The large crucifix above the entrance is a recent addition.The Georgian-style front elevation, was improved in 1957 by L.A. Mackintosh, whose personal monogram is on the wall above the left entrance door. The church was listed at Grade II by English Heritage on 20 August 1971.

BRIGHTON GREEK SCHOOL
Brighton Greek School aims to teach the Greek language and culture and to encourage a love of Greece and Cyprus, an understanding of their history and a recognition and pride on their legacy. In particular, it strives to show younger generations the influence that this rich cultural source has exerted and continues to exert on both individuals and society as a whole, quite apart from the usual benefits that stem from the knowledge of another language and culture.
