Weekday worship

Do you realise that prayer continues to be offered day by day in Saint Martin's? It is something, we as members of the church in Ruislip, should make every effort  to attend. It would be wonderful if more could join one of the daily opportunities to pray together. Wednesday evening Mass is one such time. We can hear the word of God, praise Him and receive the body of Christ. "From the Eucharist comes strength to live the Christian life and zeal to share that live with others."


This is a free phone line with a talk from the Archbishop of Canterbury, hymns, reflections and prayers. 0800 804 8044.
