Brighton - John Smith (1820)
In the month of June, he paid a visit to his friends at Brighton, and was deeply affected ? to use his own words ? " with the goodness of God in the kindness of the people." On the Sunday evening on which he preached there, the Spirit of God descended powerfully on the congregation. Many were deeply convinced of sin; fifteen or sixteen persons obtained pardon, and the meeting was continued till nearly midnight.

Probably in the Methodist Church, this was the first one in Brighton- 1808.
