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

We are a Domestic Abuse Aware Church. You are not Alone

Dear friends,

A gift from the first lockdown was the idea to begin a regular open air Eucharist at St Mary’s Tower.

We began this new initiative last August, as churches started to open again, and it quickly became popular. We continued to offer the Eucharist weekly until the end of November last ear, including a well attended service on Christmas Day.

We began the Open Air Eucharist again last week, on Mothering Sunday , with a commitment to keep it going, each Sunday at 4pm, until the Autumn.

It is such a privilege to worship within the footprint of the ancient parish church, which dates back to at least 1303, when my predecessor, Walt de Londinium, was the first recorded Rector of Hornsey. It’s quite a thing to consider how many people have stood where we do when we celebrate the Eucharist at the Tower, offering praise and lament, thanks and intercession, for countless people through thick and thin. In wartime, plagues; in periods of prosperity, and rationing, men and women, like you and I, have remembered the people of Hornsey and committed them to God’s loving care.

St Mary’s Churchyard is a beautiful space, and an outside oasis that feels even more precious in our current circumstances. We are so grateful for our partnership with the Friends of Hornsey Church Tower


(FoHCT) who look after the garden and its planting, creating a varied array of colour and texture most months of the year.

Why not join us for an open air Eucharist one Sunday at 4pm, or take a stroll to St Mary’s Churchyard and enjoy the peace and the quiet, a few moments away from the pressures of life?

The current Mayor, Councillor Adam Jogee has nominated St Mary’s Churchyard as one of his charities to support (along with Pram Depot, and Accumulate) .

He is hosting a virtual quiz on Sun, 21 March 2021 15:45 – 18:00.
