We are a Church of England parish on the Islington / Hackney border, where all are welcome. We serve a local area renowned for its long history of diversity and our congregation broadly reflects the varied population. Our services are available online through our YouTube channel, and you would be very welcome to come and worship God with us!

children and families

We work in partnership with local schools to invite families with primary school age children to fun, creative and spiritual activities. We create and curate beautiful craft in the church garden which blesses the community we are part of.
