Welcome to Church on the Corner. We are a young Anglican church in Islington, London. But probably not a church like you might imagine. There are no hymn books, or stained glass windows. We love traditional church, but we understand that these days lots of people don’t really get that.
Church on the Corner is a sort of stripped back church. We meet in an old pub for starters. If you come along you will meet a lovely, diverse crowd of people. We worship in a simple honest way, hear the Bible taught thoughtfully, share communion and pray for our community and our world. And then go to the pub together. It is a place where you can be yourself whoever you are. You will find it is a great place to grow as a person, to ask questions about God, to make friends and to get stuck into your community.
We’ve been rooted in this area for over 20 years, and have been a home to generations of people finding their way in the city. During the week we open our doors to lots of community groups, have lots of midweek activities, get stuck in to serving our local parish and we run a brilliant not-for profit nursery school.
Why church in a pub? Well it is a lovely space and we love it, but perhaps the most importantly reason is because Jesus went beyond the boundaries of traditional religion and made friends with just the sort of people who wouldn’t feel comfortable in a more formal or religious setting.
So if you would like to be part of a church where it is okay to be yourself, and okay to ask questions. Where worship is less a performance and more a community event. A place where you will belong and matter then drop into your local. We would love to meet you.
