Who’s Who?

— Priests —

Holy Trinity parish is linked with the parish of Holy Innocents, Hornsey. Fr. Patrick is licensed to Holy Innocents, and Fr. Ben Kerridge (Vicar of Holy Innocents) is an honorary assistant priest at Holy Trinity.

Fr Patrick Henderson,


Fr Patrick has spent most of his ministry in the areas of Stroud Green, Crouch End and Hornsey.  After a few years working in the City, he trained for ordained ministry at St Stephen’s House, Oxford. He was ordained in 1986 and served his curacy at Hornsey Parish Church. He returned to Hornsey in 2002 to work at Holy Trinity and Holy Innocents and to be Chaplain at the Greig City Academy. He was inducted as Vicar of Holy Trinity in 2007.

 — Pastoral Assistants —

Our parishes run a scheme for young men and women discerning their vocation, which enables them to spend some time exploring what it means to be a minister and discern the nature of their calling to do God’s work, while giving valuable time and energy to serving our parish.

Graham Hains


Pastoral Assistant

Hello I am Graham Hains, and I have been appointed as the new Pastoral assistant at Holy Trinity, Stroud Green.

I am a little older than most pastoral assistants who have been my predecessors, but I am experienced in working in a parish environment. I have spent a fair while working along-side the youth and talking with them about what a life with God in it could be like, and I hope that this skill could encourage a new stream of young Christians in our church. When not in the parish, I like nothing more than visiting my family in Surrey and being reunited with the dogs scruffy and Sunny who I enjoy many walks and adventures with. Cooking has always been an activity that I have found great pleasure in, and I’m always keen to try new cuisine, which I hope during my year at Holy Trinity, I will be shown a thing or two about the flavours which are enjoyed locally by many of the congregation.

Graham’s Pastoral Assistant colleague in the Hornsey scheme is Matilda Tempest.
