Welcome to the website of St John the Evangelist, Brownswood Park.  St John’s is the Church of England (Anglican) parish church of the Hackney bit of Finsbury Park in north London.

Everyone is welcome to services at St John’s – especially our Sunday 9:00 am Mass – regardless of age, gender, colour, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.  Whether you are a regular churchgoer, lapsed Christian, nervous enquirer, we hope you will find a warm welcome here.

We are passionate about serving our local community, including our Soup Kitchen. We are deeply committed to our responsibility to steward God’s creation. We are working hard to reduce our own impact on the environment through the Eco Church scheme and our Soup Garden project.

We have spaces to hire for community groups, classes, concerts and more.

In all these things we seek to follow Jesus Christ, who came ‘not to be served, but to serve’.  We hope this website gives you a flavour of what we are about, and we look forward to welcoming you in person.


We take safeguarding seriously at St John’s. You can find full information about our safeguarding procedures here.
