Welcome to the website for All Souls Parish, North Warwickshire
We wish you a peaceful New Year and many blessings to you and your family.
From Rev. Joanne and all the team at All Souls.
The Parish of All Souls is a wide and varied parish of 6 villages, with five church buildings and three C of E primary schools and a total of almost 3,800 parishioners. We are led by our Rector - Revd Joanne Dyer.
We would be delighted to welcome you to all or any of our activities - There is something for everyone and you are guaranteed a warm welcome wherever you choose to join us.
Services differ in style - we have traditional services, and these are the earlier morning and the evening services across the parish but we also have a family friendly, more informal service using a band to lead worship at our 10.30 services (either Warton or Austrey) and during term time we also offer, on a monthly basis, Soul Cafe which is a 'cafe style' worship, including puppets and lots of interaction (fun for all ages) held at one of our schools in the parish. A different one each term! There are more details under 'Festivals and more'
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions , prayer requests or simply need or wish to offer, help in any way - you are very welcome.
If you have any questions or enquiries, please contact your churchwarden or the PCC Secretary Alison Meredith (Tel: 01827 892796)

Some musing on cycling and life!
There are many reasons that people ride a bicycle, from the love of fresh air, to the need for speed and everything in between and also, some ride to find contentment. Some ride mountain bikes, hybrids, ride road bikes and some all types… but many of us who love cycling just like to be on two wheels.
Sometimes, as in life, things go wrong or to keep with the cycling analogy, the wheels come off! Is this a time to give up or is this a time to dig deep and find your inner strength and to grasp the challenge ahead of you? I can’t answer for anyone, but I do know this: When the challenges of life (and cycling) appear too large and overwhelming, the greatest help we can have is in Jesus. He says “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11 v 28-30). So why not reach out to Jesus when you are finding it tough to work your way through difficult times (or actually, just why not anyway?) and remember that Jesus is always there for you, His promise is for anyone, young, old or in-between. I know that doing this for me has given me a whole new perspective on life, a sense of belonging and also a peace I wouldn’t otherwise experience
Starting at a new school?
If you or anyone you know is starting at a new school, you may want to click the link below. This will take you to a further page where there are 6 links to some thoughts about how Jesus may be able to help you. There are some video clips to watch, music to enjoy and some reflective activities to do if you wish. It follows six themes:
Being the Best you can
This may also be of some help for anyone facing a change in their situation, such as a new job or moving house. You may need to bear in mind that it is written at an age specific audience but there are some helpful insights for all ages! I learnt some things!
