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.

Dear Friends,

What has interested me this week?

As the schools summer holidays begin and the city slows down for the silly season, life in Hornsey Parish Church feels very different too. We are blessed that so much of our life is connected with schools and families; inevitably in school holidays the rhythm changes a bit and hopefully can be a time to take stock and reflect.

I’ve always loved London in the summer ever since I began to visit here as a teenager. Even with the sweat of public transport, or pedaling the Pashley around, the light and the lightness of mood in many people is quite transformative; the roads are quieter and Hornsey feels less busy generally.more
