The Former Congregational Church, Black Street, Brighton was constructed in 1875 to the design of architect Charles Webb. The church was constructed by builder jams Bonham on the site of a previous timber church.

The building is tuckpointed using black and cream bricks with a minimum of reds.

The interior of the buildings contains a sloping timber floor, timber screens and pews and a central pulpit. The ceiling is exposed varnished pine lining supported by king post trusses. The walls are painted render with a stencilled dado border and paint finished mouldings to windows and door openings.
