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

This Sunday sees the beginning of Advent which marks a new liturgical year in Christ. It is a time of darkness, of hidden pregnancy, of waiting. The seed of the Kingdom of God, the seed that will germinate at Christmas, sprout in Epiphany, grow through Lent, blossom at Easter, and bear its seven fold fruit at Pentecost, is sown in the dark soil of Advent. The new life of God is already within us, even though we may see, feel and understand nothing. Patience and faith are called for. read more…
