About Hosannas

A Brief History of Church of the Hosannas Hyde Park
~ Rev. Kate Hathaway
Our History

The church’s cornerstone was laid on July 10th, 1888. Before then, the congregation of the English Church in Hyde Park met at the old school house and shared a minister with the Anglican churches in Byron and Lambeth. The land on the east side of Hyde Park Road, where the church was to be built, was generously donated by Captain R. Shaw-Wood, and it was he who named the church Hosannas.

Today, if you stand on the sidewalk and look at the front of the building, to the right of the steps, up towards the roof, you will see a small, round, red stained glass window with white numerals indicating the year the building was completed. The service of dedication was held on December 30th of that year – and you get a free tour of the church if you can tell us what year it was!

The church boasts some stunning stained glass windows dedicated to loved ones and families, whose names are familiar in London’s history, including the Lawsons and Jeffreys, as well as other objects of historical note.

In 1911, Vaughn Morris donated land for a rectory adjacent to the church’s south side. The rectory was completed in the summer of that year with help from a parade of parishioners who assisted in construction.

A fieldstone wall was erected around the church and rectory in 1914 by R.H. Smith, but it didn’t last long in church terms. Around 1950, it was decided that, instead of renting space in the school house for church teas, bazaars and other events, a Parish Hall should be built. It was further decided that stone from Mr. Smith’s wall would make a great foundation for the new building. However, ahead of their time in terms of recycling, the congregation decided not to build but to purchase a former army hut that could serve as a Parish Hall. This prefabricated building, complete with kitchen, was placed beside the church in 1955. In 1963 the Parish Hall was on the move again. It was turned at right angles to the church, placed on a nine-foot basement and linked by a door to the chancel. It has rested there to this day.

In 2008, the Church of the Hosannas celebrated 120 years of Christian witness to Hyde Park and beyond. As Hyde Park expands and grows busier by the minute, Hosannas remains a beautiful space in which to be still and know God. We gladly open our doors to all who wish to meditate in silence or add their prayers to those of the generations of worshippers who have hallowed this space.

Isaiah 8:19

"When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?"

The power of Christian prayer Teach me
Teach me, O God, to use all the circumstances of my life to-day that they may bring forth in me the fruits of holiness rather than the fruits of sin. Let me use disappointment as material for patience: Let me use success as material for thankfulness: Let me use suspence as material for perseverance: Let me use danger as material for courage: Let me use reproach as material for longsuffering: Let me use praise as material for humility: Let me use pleasures as material for temperance: Let me use pains as material for endurance.
