Fr Edward’s collation as Archdeacon of Hastings at St Mary’s Rye 18th September 2016
Welcome to the Parish Of Clay Hill
Our Parish is at the extreme north of the diocese of London, verging on Hertfordshire and the green belt. Geographically, it is one of the largest parishes in London, and within its boundaries, an extraordinary range of life and activity can be found: shops, schools, housing estates, parks and farms; a major hospital (Chase Farm), the highest concentration of garden centres in Europe, and a generous slice of the M25.
The parish comprises two churches, dedicated to St John the Baptist and St Luke the Evangelist. St John's is a Venetian style country church, situated in an almost uniquely rural part of London. St Luke's is a red-brick church situated in the more urban area of north Enfield.
The focus of church life in the parish is the Sunday Eucharist, which is celebrated at both of our two churches, but there are also regular weekday services, along with other activities and social events. Visitors and newcomers are welcome to join in all our services and activities.
