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 â€“ you will be very welcome.

I am writing to you from the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, a wonderful place of rest and pilgrimage. I know some of you have visited the Shrine and appreciated the many blessings that come from being in such a holy place. It is especially wonderful to be here as we prepare to celebrate our patronal festival on Sunday, the visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin Elizabeth. Mary drew so much courage and strength from visiting Elizabeth while they were both miraculously pregnant with their two children who would change the world forever, John the Baptist, the forerunner, and Jesus Christ, the saviour of the world. I too draw much strength and courage from the intercessions of Mary, as she prays for me and all the people of the world, just as we Christians all pray for one another. Coming to Walsingham always feels like coming home. But it is not simply a place of rest and quiet. It is also a place where we can be renewed to be sent out again into the world. The wonderful gift Mary gave us is her yes to God, when she said to the Angel Gabriel, â€ślet it be unto me according to your willâ€ť. And if we, like her, say yes to God, that doesnâ€™t mean remaining in the cosy and comfortable places; it means taking up our cross and following Jesus out into the world.
