Ruby Ministries   (02/02/17)

We are Ruby Ministries, a group supported by our Circuit which is concerned about night women on the streets of Southall. We seek to expose the injustices hidden in the shadows of its streets. The challenge for us is that when we walk the streets of Southall at night, what do we see? As we walk and pray every fourth Friday of the month, we ask God to help us to see the unthinkable so that we can reach out with compassion and help.

You may be interested in walking the streets of Southall in prayer or you may have ideas of how to be church to the night women of Southall. Please join us in our prayer walks, 11.00pm every fourth Friday of the month. If you feel called to this ministry, please get in touch with Deacon Lemia Nkwelah at lemmynkwelah@gmail.com or call 020 8575 5463.
