Welcome to Hornsey Parish Church

Hornsey Parish Church (sometimes called 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 focused 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.

Rector's Jotting Heading

Dear Friends,

With the recent press coverage of the pros and cons of more grammar schools, I was reminded of a set of stories written by Cardinal Basil Hume called ‘Basil in Blunderland’. When he was at Westminster he used to invite groups of sixty or so children at a time to come and learn some theology. These sessions were called ‘eleven-minus’ as the groups tended to be from schools attended by children who hadn’t passed the eleven-plus.

Crèche & Sunday Scho0l
Sunday School meets in the Marian Centre adjacent to Church every Sunday at 10.30am. Children return to Church at Communion. All children from 3 years upward are welcome. Please ask a member of the Welcoming Team to point you in the right direction.
Sunday School
We have three Sunday School groups according to age: a crèche for toddlers and their parents, Sunday School for children up to the age of eight and Georgians for children aged eight years and upward. These groups leave church during the first hymn and rejoin the main body of the congregation at Communion.
