Welcome to Hornsey Parish Church

Hornsey Parish Church of St Mary with St. George is part of the Church of England in the Edmonton area of the Diocese of London which in turn is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

We are a diverse church with a congregation representative of the varied community that Hornsey is: young and older; married, single and partnered, straight and gay; British and international.

The style of our worship is focussed upon the Eucharist. We see our liturgical life as very important: not fussy and celebrated with attention and care. Our musical life is rich and inclusive with a very good choir and musical director whose talents complement the atmosphere of the services which we hope are supported by the contemplative feel of the modern church building. more

There is something for everyone at Hornsey Parish Church and we hope that can include you too. Please come and see us – you will be very welcome.

Rector's Jotting Heading

Dear Friends,

What has interested me this week?

On Monday, the Pakistani human rights activist Malala Yousafzai met Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan to press for more action to free at least 200 girls held by Boko Haram Islamist militants. Boko Haram are against the western methods of education, particularly the education of girls, and have seen the terrible abduction as a protest.

As a matter of simple justice, and the basic belief that all are made in the image of God, I hope Christians tend to believe in the equal education of all, as do all mainstream faith groups and people of good will. Education brings opportunity and freedom, it promotes human flourishing and is therefore at the heart of the gospel truth.. ..more
