August Activities at All Souls


A small and chatty group of parishioners enjoyed coffee at ‘The Lab’ on Payneham Road for an irregular Coffee Club gathering.  This event is held at different venues within the Parish, and nearby suburbs, and provides an opportunity for people who attend the different services to catch up with the latest news.  Look out for the next date that will appear in the Parish Newsletter.


The ongoing battle to stabilise the foundations of the church continues with repairs to the storm-water drainage around the building.  Thanks to funds from the Parish Trust, this also provided a good opportunity to repair the broken paving at the side of the church, next to the toilets.  It is good to have this potential tripping hazard repaired. 

Thanks also to the generosity of parishioners who contributed to the National Trust Building Fund.  This enabled the Parish to improve protection to the irreplaceable William Morris stained glass windows War and Peace, in the two chapels, by replacing the old metal security grids with modern poly carbonate sheeting.
