Pastoral Care & Common Life
Parish Meals and Social Events
Being a Christian isn’t just about going to church, important as that is. We meet together as friends on rambles, at parties and parish lunches. We also enjoy working together for events such as a Christmas Fayre or Summer Fete.

The issue of our mortality came to the fore in January 2017 when Myton Hospice piloted an evening session called 'Death and Cake' at three churches in the Warwick Team, including All Saints. It was very well attended.
As follow up to this, a Bereavement Care Awareness Course (led by 'Care for the Family') was held at St Nicholas, Warwick in Jan 2018. Several All Saints members attended.
Jesus told us that we should love our neighbours as ourselves. We aim to be a community that cares for people whether or not they come to church. If you or somebody you know would like a visit because of sickness, bereavement or because life is difficult at the moment, please let us know.
