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

As you know, Patricia is training for ordination with St Mellitus College. Her course is due to end this June, and Bishop Rob has indicated that he is minded to ordain her deacon at Petertide, for which we give much thanks.

It is for the bishop to decide where curates are to continue their training, and Bishop Rob has asked Patricia to serve in the parish of St Aldhelm’s, Edmonton, with Mthr Anna Stuttard as her training incumbent.

Whilst this was unexpected, as a very well resourced church in terms of its diverse and relatively extensive ministry team, at Hornsey Parish Church we must be ready to share the gifts we have received, as hard as this can be.

St Aldhelm’s is in a place of transition under Mthr Anna as incumbent, and Patricia’s presence will add to the diversity of that team, and be a source of support to Mthr Anna as a clergy colleague, helping that church community to move forward in renewed strength and inspiration. It is also a place where there is much to do and learn, so an ideal training parish, with a good and able priest to accompany her.

Patricia will leave our Ministry Team, and the YMCA Chaplaincy Team, at the end of May, to prepare for her ordination at Petertide, when she will take on her responsibilities with Mthr Anna at St Aldhelm’s. And we have the consolation that Patricia will never be far away, and who knows what the future will hold with regard to Patricia’s ministry beyond her curacy.

We continue to pray for Patricia as she looks towards these significant steps of faith in 2021, and for our church – we will be so very sad to bid bon voyage to such a long standing sister in Christ, and daughter of God. When we have more details of the date of Patricia’s last Sunday, and her ordination, we will of course let you know.

With Patricia, Mthr Anna, and one another, we look forward to our pilgrimage of service, as we continue together into this new year, trusting that with God in his wisdom all will be well.

Fr Bruce
