“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 last Easter

"The course is a relaxed, friendly and good-humoured introduction to the Catholic faith. It focuses around some clear teaching from Fr Kevin and his team and includes plenty of time for questions and discussion. Sessions are well taught, lucid, and not overly dogmatic and also benefitted from plenty of humour!" Oliver
"I've really enjoyed the prayerful atmosphere, getting to know each other better and the group discussions in the RCIA sessions. When we see each other at mass, I feel there is this 'special bond' with the other group members." Zsuzsi
"An amazing, powerful journey of self-discovery through the learning of Jesus’ life and God’s love for us. Filled with emotions. A wonderful sharing experience. Will stay with me forever. Made some wonderful friends." Steph
