Welcome to the website for All Souls Parish, North Warwickshire
Churches opening for quiet prayer:
We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have made the decision to open our biggest church (and hence the safest) for quiet prayer. Therefore, Austrey St Nicholas Church will be open on Sunday 28th June between 3-5pm. Please feel free to come. There will be stewards to welcome you and to help keep you all safe in accordance with the Church of England guidelines. We also recognise that the government have now said that we will be allowed to open for spoken services from 4th July. We will need to consider how/if this is something that we are able to achieve. Any details will be found here. We are also considering maintaining online services as we are mindful that there are a number of older and shielding members of our congregation that may feel uncomfortable returning to normal face to face services.
If you would be interested in helping clean the church (or churches in the future) and/or helping steward please can you contact Alison Meredith. Click for details.
During the current situation we are trying new ways to 'deliver' church to you in response to the need for social isolation. We have now had several successful services conducted over 'Zoom' and we are planning to continue for the time being on a weekly basis. Please see below the times and dates. Details of how to log in will be posted below ready for you to link in to them on the day.

All Souls Parish 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. Currently we are in an interregnum, which means that we have no vicar in the parish. We are praying for a new Vicar to join us soon.
During this time the running of All Souls Parish is the joint responsibility of the five churchwardens:
Heather Cooke Austrey
Shirley Faulkner Newton Regis
Anne Bufton-McCoy Seckington/Shuttington
Dawn Cole Warton
Richard Meredith Warton
They will be acting under the guiding hand of the Area Dean, Revd Louise Shaw (Vicar of Dosthill) Contact details for Area Dean and Church Wardens.
Bible Verse for June:
Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendour, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

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 child 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'

ALPHA course - currently suspended
We are running an ALPHA course between Wednesday 4th February and Easter. This is a course designed to introduce you to the basics of faith in Jesus in a relaxed and informal way. The idea is that those attending meet together for a meal and then for some teaching - we are going to use recordings, which is then followed by some informal discussion.
