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 ‚Äď you will be very welcome.
Fr Bruce Batstone
Today is Ash Wednesday, one of the holiest days of the year for us Christians, one that we should try to mark if we can.
Yet even now, says the Lord,
return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
rend your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord, your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love,
and relents from punishing.
These are words that we will hear from the book of the prophet Joel today at the Eucharist. Words about return, fasting, weeping. Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence; from the middle ages it became the custom to begin Lent by being marked in ash with the sign of the cross. read more
