New Electoral Roll 2019
This year, a completely new Electoral Roll has to be prepared for the Annual Parish Church Meeting on Sunday 28th April. If you wish to be on the new Roll you will need to complete an application form and return it to Vanessa or one of the Parish Ministry Team by Sunday 31st March. Young people whose 16th birthday falls on or before the APCM, may also apply now, and will be entered on the new Roll on their birthday. Forms are available at the back of the Church, or downloadable from the Church website http://hornseyparishchurch.org/church-life/electoral-roll/. It would be helpful if we could communicate with you by email and/or phone. If you fill in the optional “Additional Information” box we can do so about electoral roll matters. If you would like us to be able to contact you in this way about other matters relating to the church and its activities, please give your consent on the back of the form.
During Lent our Wednesday Meeting Point lunches are special for Lent. With a flavour of the season, donations for lunches are contributed to helping St Luke’s School in Achi, Nigeria. Please note that Intercessory Prayer Group meetings will be put on pause during Lent, though the Pilgrim Groups will be meeting.
Our pilgrim groups run every Wednesday in Lent, the Julian group at 1oam and the Gospel group at 1pm. All are welcome to join us for these times of reading, reflection and prayer.
Join us for prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the Lady Chapel, 5-6pm, every Wednesday in Lent. You are welcome to come for part of the time, or the whole hour. During this time we pray evening prayer from 5.15-5.30pm.
Lent Course: Every Creature A Divine Word –
Christians and Ecology
2019 is a big year for us at Horsney Parish Church, as we celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the completion of our current parish church building. This anniversary is the central motif of a project we have called HPC 60/60 which aims to renew our community spaces and church buildings both on the site where the parish church is situated, and to think about how this opportunity can place us best to serve the parish as a whole. This project will have ecological awareness and sustainability at its heart, and we want to use these themes evangelistically in this anniversary year in the Lent Course. Our second session is this Sunday at 12 when Clare Bellefeuille-Rice will be speaking on care for the stranger, honouring every person as a Divine Word. Please pick up a leaflet to read more and come and join us.
Lent of Accompanied Prayer
A Lent of Accompanied Prayer is an opportunity to spend the penitential season of Lent trying to grow in prayer and seeking to spend more time with God. Please pray for the members of our church involved.
It has long been a tradition in this church to remember our loved ones by giving a lily in their memory to decorate the church at Easter. Their names are put on a list which is placed in front of the Paschal candle. Please speak to Joan Taylor, Wendy Barnett or Clare Goymer.
Ecumenical Stations of the Cross: Fridays, 7.30pm
The Stations of the Cross is a traditional devotion in which we walk with Christ on the road to Calvary and reflect on his passion and death for our salvation. The services take place at 7.30pm on the following dates; everyone is welcome at any/all of these:
22nd March at Holy Trinity, Stroud Green
29th March at Holy Innocents, Hornsey
5th April at Hornsey Parish Church
Haringey Advice Day 20th March
Free to attend, from 12-4pm, at Wood Green Civic Centre. Areas of advice will include housing, health, immigration, debt & money, welfare benefits, employment and legal. Please pick up a flyer at the back of church for more information.
Lent is a good time to pick up a bit of spiritual reading so why not peruse the church library at the back. Look out for some new additions to the collection.
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. The next Spaghetti Junction is Wednesday 27th March All welcome.
