Church on the Corner

Church on the Corner is an Anglican church in an old pub in Islington, London. Service at 7pm every Sunday.

Our first time worshipping together in our lovely building. Things are a little different, but it is very good to be back.

A few things for you to think about if you are joining us.
– We’ll need to sign people in – so do arrive in good time.
– You’ll need to wear a mask except for when you are receiving communion.
– We have live worship – but no congregational singing as such. That doesn’t mean you can’t harmonise or hum along to yourself.
– Communion is in one kind only (which means no shared cup) and will be brought to you in your seat to limit moving around.
– There will be no refreshments, and we should leave the building before chatting to one another. A pub trip might be the best solution.
But what we can do is pray and praise, encourage one another, pause to meet with God and hear from his Word.
We’re going to be starting a series called ‘Light in the Darkness’ from John’s gospel.
And we will of course be continuing to stream services live online
With love and prayers for our new beginning together.

Welcome to Church on the Corner.

We are a Church of England 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 which meets in an old pub. 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. 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 beautiful 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 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.

How to get involved?
