News & Events

Weekly and advance notices
Week beginning Sunday 28th June – The Feast of Ss Peter & Paul

 

We are committed to all aspects of Safeguarding in our church. This commitment flows from the fact that we are all made in the image of God and the Church’s common belief in the dignity and uniqueness of every human being.

Safeguarding Statement: The parish of Hornsey believes that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all of our staff, volunteers and those who use our premises to share this commitment and value the support of those who worship here in achieving this.

 

It costs over £400 a day to open the doors of our church for ‘business’. We receive no funding from the government. Nor from the Diocese. Our mission is only made possible by charitable donations and other fund-raising activities. If you would like to make a donation, as well as giving cash you can also give by texting GIVETOHORNSEY 5 to 70085 to give £5.00. This costs £5 plus a standard rate message. Alternatively, you can opt to give any whole amount up to £20. Thank you.

 

Re: the Foodbank 

Thanks to all those who have donated Food or Money as we look towards the future – Might we all send the following message to our friends, Facebook and others saying “If you know of someone who is entering into rocky times and is becoming deprived of food in the area N4, N8, N6 and is not in contact with a Foodbank, please would they go to the www.holytrinityfoodbank.org website and send a message to the “advice” email there or text 07469 952112”

We want to make sure nobody gets missed out.

If you would like to be included on the Foodbank Newsletter please send a request  to press@holytrinityfoodbank.org.uk

 

Zoom Fellowship (online coffee after church)

Please join us for online coffee after the service on Sunday, from 11.45am. A chance to get together and catch up over Zoom. Please contact Lucy if you would like to join in the gathering.*

At a certain point places will have to be limited, but please don’t be disappointed if we are oversubscribed this week – there will be other opportunities to meet together online.

Please let Lucy know if you would like some help using Zoom. It is also possible to dial in from a landline (at a cost of 8.6p per minute), so please say if you would be interested in this option.

*Our online gatherings, like all church events, will follow the guidelines of our Safeguarding statement:

Progress Update: Opening Church for Private Prayer

Just like other local churches, we are not rushing into opening for private prayer, but  when we do we expect it to look something like this:

Starting around the second week of July

Opening once or twice a week for about two hours, asking people to stay about 15 mins each to allow as many chances to enjoy the building as possible

Encouraging regular congregants to book ahead, leaving a bit of space for people just passing who want to drop in to be able to do so

Limited amount of church available to enable safe cleaning

Thanks to our Churchwardens for all their work in planning this.

 

Rectory Update: Keeping you in the loop

Trevor begins a six week course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy on July 6th. During this time we will both be shielding in the Rectory which will mean that the  live streaming from church will largely return to the Rectory.

We are both in good spirits, and offer continued thanks for your kindness in so many forms. With love from Trevor and Fr Bruce
