All About All Souls’

All Souls’ Church is a parish of the Anglican Church, in the Diocese of Adelaide. We have been part of the St. Peters community since 1883.

Our Mission:   Nurturing hearts, souls and friendships by creating space for contemplation, connection and community


All Souls’ Anglican Parish was established in 1883 and a small wooden church was built in Sixth Avenue, St Peters. The church was licenced for divine worship on All Souls’ Day, Friday 2nd November 1883.

In 1907, land was purchased on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Stephen Terrace and the Parish began designing a new church building. Construction began in September 1915 and the building was dedicated in May 1916 but due to regulatory and financial constraints was not consecrated until 1926.

All Souls’ Parish has alternated between flourishing and struggling throughout the 20th Century, and into the 21st Century, as have many Christian communities. The Parish strives to remain relevant in a world of distraction and demand and continues to offer faith-based community support, facilities and friendship.

Visitors express surprise at the beauty of the church and the sense of serenity that it conveys.  We welcome visitors to share the special qualities that  All Souls’ offers to people of all faiths, or of no faith.  Please feel free to contact the Church Wardens or members of the Parish Council for more information.
