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!
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.
We are exploring the theme of Hope through the season of Lent and looking forward to Easter. The next event on Tuesday 30th March will be a Neighbourhood Easter Hunt - do join us at the church garden after school from 3pm and look out for signs of Hope in our community!
These are the events on our journey to Easter this Holy Week.
The church building will be open at 10.30am every Sunday from Palm Sunday, 28th March. Sunday services will be live streamed from the church building.
Everyone is welcome to join us in worship, reflection, and prayer from 10.40am to 11.45am each Sunday. Services are also available on our YouTube channel.
We meet to pray several times a week. You are welcome to join on our YouTube channel for morning prayer from 9.15am to 9.45am Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
A calendar of all events is available here.
Hope is the theme of our children and families programme in the period up to Easter
