St Martin's church was built to serve the new and growing population developing in West London as a result of the extension of the Piccadilly Line westwards during the latter part of the 19th century.

We pride ourselves on being ‘Church of England’, welcoming and warm (we also have a good heating system!).  We are open, liberal and inclusive with a stress on community and fellowship. We celebrate women’s and lay ministry. Members of the congregation often travel a long way to join us.

Our main 10am Service is the Parish Communion but about eight times a year this becomes a non – Eucharistic, Family or All–Age Service. Every Sunday we have Book of Common Prayer 8am services of Holy Communion and Evensong with sermon at 6.30pm. On Wednesdays we have an informal Holy Communion service in the Parish Room, followed by a lively and sometimes noisy Coffee Club. 

The church was consecrated on St Martin's Day, 11th November 1906 by Bishop Arthur Foley Winnington- Ingram, Bishop of London from 1902 to 1938. During the 1930s vestries were added to the building and during the 1960s a hall and church flat (St Martin’s Cottage) were built.

Amongst distinguished members of the clergy, we remember in particular the Rev’d ‘Harry’ Clement Williams who was vicar from 1920 to 1938. He died in 1986 aged 106, being then the oldest living Anglican priest in the world!  

We host the Japanese Anglican Church (U.K.) with monthly Sunday Bible study and services held in Japanese. Twyford Church of England High School, which uses St Martin’s for school services, is situated within the parish. The clergy provide a chaplaincy service to the Acton Care Centre.
