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
“It is only by living completely in this world, that one learns to have faith. One must completely abandon any attempt to make something of oneself, whether it be a saint, or a converted sinner, or a churchman, a righteous person or an unrighteous one, a sick or a healthy one. By this-worldliness I mean living unreservedly in life’s duties, problems, successes and failures, experiences and perplexities. In so doing we throw ourselves completely into the arms of God, taking seriously, not our own sufferings, but those of God in the world – watching Christ in Gethsemane. That, I think, is faith; that is metanoia; and that is how one becomes a human being and a Christian.”
