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 â€“ you will be very welcome.

What has interested me this week?
I read in the Guardian last Friday that Michelangeloâ€™s favourite sculpture, an impressively muscled torso more than 2,000 years old, is to travel from the Vatican to the UK for the first time, for the British Museumâ€™s big spring exhibition on the human body in ancient Greek art, exploring a preoccupation with the body beautiful that continues today. From Bondi Beach to California and beyond, it remains the â€śbody people want to have,â€ť said the museumâ€™s director, Neil MacGregor. Around 150 objects will go on display for the show, which the museum said would be a â€ścelebration of the beauty and ideals of ancient Greek artâ€ť.More

Hornsey Parish Church believes that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all of our staff, volunteers and those who use our premises to share this commitment and value the support of those who worship here in achieving this.
