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 the ongoing Coronovirus (COVID-19) situation, our Archbishops have advised us to temporarily suspend public worship at Holy Innocents and the church building is now temporarily closed. In the meantime join us for Mass at 10am on Sundays online.  Mass will also be said at 9.30am each weekday and a service of Compline at 9pm each weeknight. There are also online ‘HI Kids’ videos aimed at children. You can watch all of these services on our Facebook page and you don’t need an account or to sign in to watch online.

Mass at Holy Innocents for the great feast of Pentecost (on 31 May 2020) was streamed live on our Facebook page and a video is available below. Please click here for the liturgy to pray at home.

Click on our news page to watch videos of recent services. This includes a video of the Requiem Mass for Hansel Smith, a beloved church member, which was held on Wednesday 20 May.

Together with our sister church of Holy Trinity, we normally have daily Morning and Evening Prayer and Mass, as well as regular study groups. Our Sunday Mass is usually at 10am. We hope the church building will be open again soon so you can come and see!

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.
