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.

Dear Friends

What has interested me this week?

I very much enjoyed viewing the exhibition of Beryl Bainbridge’s artwork currently showing at Somerset House. I have read some of her books, but her talent as an artist is much less well known. Click here to see some examples of her work.

My favourite of her novels I have read is Every Man for Himself which is set on the Titanic and tells the story of the terrible sinking of that ship. Several of her paintings are set from the book’s storyline as Beryl often painted scenes after she had written a novel. More
