Welcome to Holy Innocents Hornsey

Holy Innocents is the Church of England Parish Church for Hornsey and Crouch End

Our congregation is a vibrant mix of ages and backgrounds. Our services are in the Anglo-Catholic tradition and everyone is welcome to come and worship.


Due to Coronovirus (COVID-19), the church building was temporarily closed. Following the Government’s announcement that churches can open for public worship from 4th July 2020, we have also started having services in the building again but we have to limit the numbers who can attend to maintain social distancing. Join our mailing list for further details and to book a place.

If you are shielding or unable to come to the building, you can continue to join us for Mass at 10am on Sundays online.  You can watch all of these services on our Facebook page and you don’t need an account or to sign in.

You can also click on our news page to watch videos of recent services.

This has been a difficult time for us financially, losing nearly all the income we would have got through Sunday collections. We realise this is a tough time for everybody, and want to give heartfelt thanks to those who have already given so generously and continue to do so each month. If you could support us, you can donate on here on our Give A Little Page.

Stay and play 2

We are strongly committed to serving our neighbours and are enthusiastic about our work with local schools and community groups, especially our involvement with Haringey & Enfield Homeless Respite.

When the building is re-opened you may also be interested in coming along to Little Innocents, our Stay and Play every Tuesday in term time from 10-12. We also have a Community Coffee Morning every Wednesday at 10.30.

Innocent Reflections

Each week we publish a blog post with a reflection on what’s going on. You can read the latest one here: Innocent Reflections Latest Blogs . You can also subscribe on the link to get these blog posts by email. 

Safeguarding Statement

Holy Innocents believes that safeguarding is the responsibility of everybody and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people, 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.
