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 Canon Louise Shaw. Contact details for Area Dean and Church Wardens.

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
