Twenty-seven current and former places of worship have Grade II status.In February 2015, Brighton and Hove City Council adopted a new draft "local list of heritage assets".The city of Brighton and Hove, on the south coast of England, has more than 100 extant churches and other places of worship, which serve a variety of Christian denominations and other religions.More than 40 former religious buildings, although still in existence, are no longer used for their original purpose.Hundreds of buildings and structures in the city were assessed against criteria which covered their "local historic, architectural, design and townscape value", and those meeting the criteria were designated as locally listed buildings (subject to final approval by the council's Economic Development and Culture Committee later in 2015).
This supplemented the nearby St Stephen's Church following the rapid development of the Montpelier and Clifton Hill areas west of Brighton railway station in the early 19th century.

Arthur Wagner built this church in 1875 using £3,000 set aside by his father for that purpose.
West Blatchington, a village on the South Downs east of Hangleton, was absorbed into the erstwhile Borough of Hove in 1928.
Its medieval parish church fell into disrepair by the 17th century but was restored in the 1890s and extended in the 1960s by John Leopold Denman following substantial population growth in the area.
Originally a chapel of ease to St Nicholas' Church, it was given its own parish in 1924.
