Erected in 1909 by Brighton builders Clayton and Black, this formerly Anglican church was originally dedicated to St Thomas the Apostle. The Early English style was based on St Mary's, Hackney Wick (1880) by Bodley and Garner.
The church contained a set of Stations of the Cross painted by Harry R. Mileham, a local artist. When the church was closed in 1993 these were removed to St Mary's, Kemptown, Brighton. The building was sold to the Coptic congregation and Pope Shenuda of Alexandria subsequently rededicated the church to St Mary and St Abraham.
