The gardens foster community spirit between its users, which are mostly families with children, dog lovers, and people in search of a quiet space close to the city. A corner of the children’s garden is reserved for those who like to try their hand at growing edibles.

The church is the oldest surviving building in Brighton providing a sought-after focus for local history.

Wild life and bio-diversity are also encouraged, with wild meadow areas, all beneficial for pollinators, birds and bats.
