Brighton Chapel began in 1888 and has been located at its

current location in Brighton, Indiana since the spring of 1908.


At one time, Brighton Chapel was connected to

English Prairie Church of the Brethren,

located two miles south of Brighton.


In 1887 some members of the church began discussing

the place of women’s apparel (particularly prayer bonnets)

and of the inclusion of instruments (the piano)

during the normally a cappella worship time.

As a result of these discussions, some chose to leave

the Church of the Brethren in the Spring of 1888

to start what we now know as Brighton Chapel.

Since the church’s founding, its people have seen
the hand of God blessing its ministry.
Brighton Chapel continues to enjoy God’s favor today
as it seeks to influence LaGrange County for Jesus Christ.
