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

Curate’s Curios (14/2019)


When I was a kid, we used to do the processions not on Palm Sunday, but at Pentecost, on what was still called Whitsunday by parents and grandparents. I was in the church choir, along with my Dad and brothers, and dressed in cassock and surplice we trooped around the parish, up and down the streets singing hymns, following a cross, followed by the Sunday School and the congregation, maybe a hundred people and, if we were lucky, a brass band. Most of the churches and chapels were out at the same time, so across the town on the breeze would come echoes of other church choirs, other brass bands. It was like a street party, with music and costumes and people coming out of their houses to watch us go by. Read more
