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.

Come and join us for worship, with Mass on Sunday at 10am (followed by light refreshments) and on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am and Thursdays at 7pm. Everybody is very welcome!


You can also join us for Mass at 10am on Sundays online. Midweek masses will also be streamed. You can watch all of these services on our Facebook page and you don’t need an account or to sign in.

Our Stay and Play, Little Innocents, runs on a Tuesday from 9-12pm, a space for parents and carers to bring their toddlers. We run a community coffee morning at 10:45 on Wednesdays (just after Mass!). Please feel free to join us outside the church for a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit.

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.

You may also be interested in coming along to Little Innocents, our Stay and Play every Tuesday from 9.30-12. Stay and Play runs all year, but closes for a week after Christmas, a week after Easter and for August. It remains open for half term.
