Our Members

Membership of the BHFA currently stands at 106 groups and seven individuals from the following faith traditions:

  1. Christian
  2. Jewish
  3. Muslim
  4. Buddhist
  5. Bahá’í
  6. Scientology
  7. Spiritualist
  8. Pagan
  9. Brahma Kumaris
  10. Hindu

Membership is divided into two categories:

  1. Faith Group Members – Churches, Synagogues, Mosques or non-worshipping faith groups such as the YMCA and St Lukes Advice Centre.
  2. Associate Members – individuals who have joined the BHFA.

Faith Group Members have full voting rights within the BHFA, whereas Associates do not. This arrangement ensures that Faith groups (that have one vote per group) cannot be outvoted by collections of individuals who would have a vote each if they were full voting members.

Membership is free and open to any faith group or individual belonging to a faith group in the city of Brighton and Hove. To become a member, please email our secretary at: Lev@bhfa.org.uk 

The 106 Faith Groups are as follows:
