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

Rector's Jottings (No. 25/2022)

Rector's Jottings

Dear friends,

It will be nine months next Wednesday, July 20th, since Trevor died. The time has passed quickly in some ways; in others, if feels like a lifetime. I thought I would take the opportunity to let you know how I am. You have all been so wonderfully kind and supportive during theses difficult months, it seems only right to share a bit with you.

Whilst the Rectory feels very quiet without Trevor, I am getting used to living here without him, although do have the capacity to waste hours thinking about our life there together, both in good times and the challenging times of his illness. It has been nice to have family to stay at different times, and a highlight each week is when the Ministry Team come for Sunday breakfast.

Another absence are ghe dulcet tones of Dame Peggy. As some of you know, she has relocated to Wood Vale. She always had high aspirations, and I’m please that she is now living in a place where she gets the attention and exercise that a DBE deserves. I saw her recently and noted how much weight she has lost – much longer walks are clearly suiting her.

I continue to be very grateful for the space you all give me to go to Norwich regularly for my Friday rest day. This is proving to be a real haven of peace, and refreshment, and my increasing involvement in the life of the Julian community is helping me listen to what God is saying to me through the challenges of these past couple of years or so.

The etchings of Julian continue to inspire and help. In the Revelations of Divine Love, she writes in a very attractive way about us all being embraced and held in God, whether we are alive or dead. I gain great comfort from our faith which tells us that those who die remain present with us, although we know that in a very different way.

And scripture gives solace too. I have recently been reacquainting myself with the Letter to the Hebrews whose image of heaven is beautiful, and when I am able to remember that Trevor is there, I feel more peace.

But grief has its own time, and has to be surrendered to and endured. And like any enduring, some days are easier than others.

I’m looking forward to the Summer

With the assurance of my prayers

Fr Bruce
