Welcome to the website for All Souls Parish, North Warwickshire

COVID 19 (Coronavirus)

In response to the Government advice and the Church of England step to suspend all services until further notice, it is with regret that we will not be holding any services either at church or elsewhere (such as Soul Cafe).  If you would like to view the advice from the Church of England please click HERE.

Unfortunately this also means that we are unable to open the churches as well. 

In the absence of services we have set up a new 'tab' to share with you some resources that you may find helpful.  Click here.

The Bible encourages us to look out for one another so please stay in contact and look for opportunities to support each other - especially the vulnerable both elderly and those that are poorly.  We need each other - let us make use of technology and the like to maintain links yet adhere to the best advice for restricting further spread of the virus. 

As a church we are praying for the worldwide situation, our national situation and of course for our parishes.  If you would like to join us in prayer we would be very happy to hear from you, just email from the website so that we can include you, either by name or by active participation.  The church email, contact details and that of our church secretary can be found by clicking this LINK

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.

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'
