Edmonton is an urban hub in North East London, characterised by its rich diversity and its friendliness. Like all urban centres, Edmonton has its challenges. Income levels are well below the national average, and the rate of unemployment is higher. Edmonton attracts many new immigrants and this adds to the vibrancy of the area. Ours is a parish of multiple faiths and we have strong connections, both with the local Islamic community (the largest other faith community in Edmonton) and the Buddhist centre. Edmonton is a locality that has witnessed huge changes in population over the last fifty years and this is reflected in the community which is St Peterís.
