Welcome to the website for All Souls Parish, North Warwickshire

PRAYER FOR UKRAINE:

God of peace and justice, We pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.  We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them.  We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.  AMEN

Archbishops Justin Welby and Stephen Cottrell

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.

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

Church and Chat (mid week service)

All Souls will be hosting a new event - 'Church and Chat' from 10-11.30am held in Shuttington and Alvecote Village Hall every ALTERNATE month. (See under services for May's date).

It will involve a short service, after which there will be time to stay and chat over coffee. 

ALL ARE WELCOME 

OPEN DOOR

Thy Kingdom Come

26th May - 5th June

There are 11 days of 'They Kingdom Come', a worldwide ecumenical call to prayer, starting on Ascension Day and culminating on Pentecost Sunday.  During this time it is hoped that everyone taking part will deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ and pray for 5 friends or family members to come to faith in Jesus.  In addition the opportunity should be taken to pray for the the empowerment of the Holy Spirit so that we as Christians can be effective in our witness.

The website can be accessed HERE - it gives full details and also a number of helpful resources.
