Peace, at Rottingdean, at the foot of the South Downs in Sussex, opened only last year, was consecrated by Bishop Cowderoy on Wednesday this week. Standing just off the old-world High Street on a sloping bank
the church is traditional in style and is built of Sussex flint.
The modern interior is ahnost all white with pleasing wide arches, a plain modern altar in whlte stone and with a high baldacchino painted bright red striking a note of contrast.
There are lightwood highly polished benches; shingle, small and well carved Stations of the Cross. The cost of the church, E23,000, has been met in only three-and-a-half years and without the help of pools or legaelee. This is Rottingdean's first permanent church. Previously parishioners had attended services in the convent chapel. The parish priest is Fr. Patrick O'Brien.
