Our Church

Our partner church is St Nicholas Church in Austrey village and we are part of the Parish of All Souls, North Warwickshire. We were delighted that in May 2021, after an 18 month period of being in interregnum, our prayers were answered and Rev. Joanne Dyer joined as our Rector.

A few words from Rev. Dyer

Hello, I am Reverend Joanne and on the 25th May 2021, I became the Rector of the parish of All Souls, which includes your lovely school. You may have seen me out and about exploring with the family and our Dog as we moved into the Vicarage at Austrey a few weeks ago. I am really enjoying getting to know the area and those who live and work here.

I have always felt called to Multi Church rural ministry, which coming from Birmingham may seem odd. But this was really confirmed having spent the last 4 years serving across 8 churches and more villages. Before hearing Gods call to ordination I worked in senior management roles in the NHS for 25 years across Birmingham and Solihull. I am married to Barry who is a great support and have a grown up daughter.

I am really looking forward to living and serving alongside you, coming into school and hearing what the children are learning and seeing them develop in courage, strength and love as they become the amazing humans God created them to be.

If you see me out give me a wave and say hello. I look forward to getting to know you.

God Bless

Rev’d Joanne
