Welcome to our church

Hornsey Parish Church 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 and vibrant 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. 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,

The Trouble with Incense…

I’ve been thinking a lot about incense recently.

I really like incense, myself – I  love the smell. And smells are important, hard-wired into our brains and associated with specific memories, people and places. We’ve all had that Proustian experience of smelling something and being taken back to a place and time far away – cut grass dragging us into summers of the past or a hit of spice which reminds us viscerally of food eaten far away.

For me, incense smells like church. And so it is full of good associations – it reminds me of happy occasions and friendship and worship and prayer and, most of all, the Eucharist. It is a smell I associate with mystery and wonder, with liturgy and worship and the presence of God. I love the way the smell lingers so that when I pick up my coat midweek I am sometimes hit again by the ghost of incense and am reminded amid the busyness of daily life of the stillness of God. Read more
