Simon Brading

Simon Brading has devoted his life to serving the church. As the worship Pastor at Emmanuel Brighton, he has helped to build a vibrant worship team, drawing in a large family of creatives, worship leaders, songwriters and musicians. He also oversees worship at Newday, a significant Christian festival with 7,000 young people gathering every year.


Anna Brading

Anna Brading and her husband, Simon Brading, oversee the Emmanuel worship team in Brighton. She is a songwriter and loves to process life and faith through writing songs. Hearing the Church sing to God is something Anna really enjoys, as well as how sung worship helps God’s people to own the truths they hear and to stand on them through their lives. Anna feels called to write, find and lead songs that give people truth in God to grab hold of and enjoy. She also feels that praise needs unlocking and good songs full of truth can help to do that (as does a good groove!). In other news, Anna is more of a cat person than a dog person and prefers small island snorkelling coves to vast surfing beaches.

Alex is classically trained and plays the flute and bassoon but as a former prolific stutterer took up singing as a way of boosting her confidence and controlling her breathing.

Worship Pastors Day will be held at Emmanuel Brighton (previously Church of Christ the King):

Emmanuel Brighton Clarendon Centre

As the venue is literally 4 minutes walk from Brighton train station, we recommend getting the train down. However, there is a car park opposite the Clarendon Centre which is around £10 for the day.


We appreciate train tickets, petrol and parking can add up... so we've purposely made this day as accessible as possible.

Worship Pastors Day ticket is £25
