Happy 200th birthday to St Mary Magdalene's Church

Our friends and neighbours at Hope Church Islington have a weekend of celebration to mark the two hundredth anniversary of the building of the church of St Mary Magdalene on Holloway Road.

As Islington's population began to grow it became clear that the parish needed a second church. This was the first step in a remarkable period - over three dozen churches were built within St Mary's original parish over the course of the next eighty years.

We congratulate our neighbours on reaching this big anniversary and pray God's blessing on their ministry and mission.
