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,

Isn’t it funny how you can use words or phrases for years and then all of a sudden they take on a meaning for you? It happened the other day for me when someone spoke about something happening “in your lifetime”.

My lifetime. An allotted span. A discrete period that has been given to me to do something with.

It made me realise how careless, even negligent, I have been and I am with it.

Maybe that’s why I enjoyed the film “About Time”, which was on TV a month or so back. Quite simply it reminds you (or it did me) to make the most of life. Notice what’s going on. Relish the little moments.

The main character discovered he could travel in time to places and events he’d been to before. So he could live every day twice if he wished. Live it as normal, worrying about everything and noticing little. Then live it again and actually see what’s happening. Enjoy it the second time around.
