Spaghetti Junction: Wednesday pasta supper beginning Wednesday 23rd January
In 2019 we are experimenting for three months with a new monthly supper night. Spaghetti Junction is a chance to meet new friends, and spend time with people we already know, sharing a simple pasta supper. We will ask for a £5 donation to cover costs, and please bring your own wine, beer or soft drinks. Spaghetti Junction will begin at 7.30 and end around 9pm. Further dates will be 27th Feb and 27th March. For more details speak to Clay and Jenny. All welcome.
Going Places: Anglo-Saxon Exhibition Saturday 26th January 2-4pm
Our first Going Places event of 2019 takes us to the acclaimed exhibition at the British Library. Treasures from the British Library’s own collection, including the beautifully illuminated Lindisfarne Gospels, Beowulf and Bede’s Ecclesiastical History, sit alongside stunning finds from Sutton Hoo and the Staffordshire Hoard. The Anglo Saxon exhibition costs around £16 for adults, but there are other exhibits in the British Library that can be seen for free do if you prefer you can join us at the Library and meet up for tea afterwards.
We are very pleased to announce the return of the HPC Parish Holiday!
We are planning to stay at Vicki and Phil’s lovely award-winning B&B, the Meadfoot Bay in Torquay, for three nights in May, arriving on the afternoon of Monday 20th and departing on the morning of Thursday 23rd. During our stay we will enjoy half board, which comprises a cooked to order breakfast each morning and a two-course evening meal on each of the three evenings we are there. The cost of these meals, excluding drinks, is included in the price. We will pay for our own lunches as we will probably be ‘out and about’ during the days. For more details please see the leaflet at the back of church.
Many of you will know Glynis, a member of our congregation, who with her husband Rev John Stanley Weeks has recorded several CDs of lovely gospel music. They are available for sale – please speak with Fr Bruce for more details.
Next Meal cards
You may have noticed the ‘Next Meal’ cards at the back of church; please feel free to take some of these away with you to give to people who are homeless. They give the web address of a site which lists all the restaurants and hostels which provide meals for free, so the cards are essentially a more useful and valuable gift than money.
Hall kitchen cupboard
We are planning to have a clear out of the kitchen cupboard in the hall. Please let us know, by the end of January, if anything in there belongs to you that you want kept or that belongs to you.

You may be given a choice of three churches when you search for Hornsey Parish Church on their website – please select the one that has ‘The Ecclesiastical Parish of St Mary With St George Hornsey’ in the title. Once you have signed up, you can browse their website for the store you want to shop with. Click ‘shop now’ to go to the store’s website, then continue to shop as normal. Give as you Live will then email you within 1-7 days to let you know how much you’ve raised for Hornsey Parish Church. You don’t pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you, and it’s also completely free for Hornsey Parish Church.
