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.
Our worshipping life, which as well as the Eucharist being celebrated regularly throughout the week, also includes morning prayer that is offered daily. We meet throughout the week with our local sister churches for evening prayer, and our contemplative prayer group meets weekly, as does our intercessory prayer group. We hope this attention to our life in God feeds and nourishes our active Christian witness. We take part in a local Night Shelter for the Homeless; we work very closely with our church primary school, and another primary school in the parish; have a programme of outreach work with older people; have a very active programme of work connected with the performing arts; we outreach to young children and their parents through Noahâ€™s Ark and our lay Schools Worker; we host a weekly church youth group with a Soccer Skills Club; we make our extensive spaces available to the community; we offer spiritual support and guidance through a cycle of study and reflection groups throughout the year.
There is something for everyone at Hornsey Parish Church and we hope that can include you too. Please come and see us â€“ you will be very welcome.
