A light on the hill which cannot be hidden, which shines to give light to everyone in the village
Stretton is a friendly, busy village with a shop and Post Office, doctor’s surgery, primary school and a pub. It is the largest village in the benefice, with a range of housing. The parish includes the smaller village of Princethorpe which has a Roman Catholic church and primary school.
All Saints’ is well-equipped church with a kitchen, toilet, children’s area and prayer corner. The removal of some pews has created flexible spaces at the front and rear for church and social activities. We are a faithful worshipping community with a range of services to suit different preferences for style of worship and organise plenty of social and fundraising events.
Our audio-visual system that means we are able to hold more creative lay-led worship. Music also plays an important part in our worship and we have an excellent organist and a festival choir who get together to rehearse for special services. Our new and enthusiastic team of bell ringers ring for services and weddings.
