Closing our church building for a season

Hornsey Parish Church, like all other churches and places of worship, is now closed as we fight the Corona virus.

The Bishop of London wrote to say that church buildings will be closed across London as we seek to encourage people to stay at home to limit the spread of Covid-19. She says, “Our most profound desire is to come together with our neighbours. Christ taught us to come together as His Body to celebrate the sacraments. In all the history of Christendom in these islands, we have not before taken such a step. Partly, this is our modern understanding of how disease is communicated, which in the times of former plagues had not developed. But it is also born of the teaching of Our Lord that the two great commandments are love of God and love of neighbour. The very love of neighbour that leads us to want to come together requires us to sacrifice congregating for a season”.

Even though our building will be closed, Hornsey Parish Church continues to be alive and active, as we all work together to continue to make Christ known in Hornsey, and the community around and about. Please keep an eye on the website, and on emails coming to your inbox from Churchdesk.

We are delivering materials we can to those not online, and please be assured I have been discussing with the Ministry Team how we continue to best support you all, both in your worship and discipleship, as well as more practically as needs arise.  We will keep you posted.

If you would like us to pray for someone on your behalf, or remember someone you are concerned about at this challenging time, please contact Nina Saint.

Can you join our directory of those offering assistance as areas of need arise? Contact Patricia Brown.

The Food Bank are seeking to appoint reserve volunteers: holytrinityfoodbank.org.uk

We are revising our electoral roll ready for the Annual Parochial Church Meeting next month. If you are not already on the Roll, and you wish to be included, you will need to complete and return an Application for Enrolment by Sunday 29th March.

Whether or not you are on the Electoral Roll, please also complete and return a consent form if you have not already done so. This is also the easiest way to update your contact details if they have changed since last Spring.

Forms, names on the current electoral roll and a map of the Parish are on the Electoral Roll table at the back of the Church. Please hand completed forms to Vanessa or to one of the Parish Ministry Team. Forms can also be downloaded from the Church website http://hornseyparishchurch.org/church-life/electoral-roll and emailed to hpc.intouch@gmail.com.
