All Saints PCC is in an interregnum period at the present time and has produced the attached profile of the Parish for those who may be interested in considering this post. The profile has been put together by representatives from the Parish and from those representing the Diocese of Coventry. This profile is based upon the 8 essential qualities survey which supports the mission ambitions of the Diocese of Coventry.

In the attached version we have removed all pictures in order to make the profile small enough for anyone wishing to select and download it for personal use. Should you wish to see photographs of some events over recent times please view the photo gallery on this web site. We look forward to having comments on the profile and applications for the post.

Walking a Labyrinth

Posted by webmaster on January 15, 2015 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (0)


Walking a labyrinth as a way of paying something Christians have been doing for centuries. A labyrinth is not a maze. When you walk a labyrinth you simply follow the path which will always take you to the centre. The standard way of walking to Labyrinth is to walk very slowly, following the path to the middle. After a pause at the centre, you slowly retrace your steps back out again.


The Labyrinth can be walked by people of every age, including children. We are using a canvas Labyrinth – the design can be seen below. Several people can walk the labyrinth at the same time, providing they are courteous. We ask you to remove your shoes before walking on the canvas. If you would like the 'labyrinth experience' but have difficulty walking, a small wooden labyrinth will be available. You can sit in place the labyrinthd on your lap and trace the path using a finger.


It is suggested that you allow one hour for walking the labyrinth. You might like to see it as a 'mini pilgrimage'. It is desirable to spend some time preparing for your journey. You could seek to become still, and practice walking very slowly. Might you want to say a prayer before you begin your pilgrimage? Once you begin to walk the Labyrinth may find you want to stop occasionally and reflect. You may like to rest at the centre, where there will be a lit candle. When the walk back is been completed you might like to sit and reflect for a while.


On the Labyrinth path that will be stations (stopping places) where meditation will be provided for you to use – if you wish.


The Labyrinth will be available at the following times:


Sunday 18th 2.00pm to 5.00pm

Monday 19th 10.00am to 12noon

7.30pm to 9.30pm (This session will begin with an introduction to  the labyrinth.)

Wednesday 21 10.00am to 12noon

6.30pm to 9.00pm

Thursday 22 10.30am to 12.30pm

Saturday 24 10.00am to 3.00pm
