1907

25. ALL SOULS, Witton (Wenlock Rd.), is a building of red brick with stone dressings in the Gothic style, designed by Philip Chatwin. It has a chancel, nave, east and west aisles, and a low central tower with a pyramidal roof. It was consecrated in 1907, (fn. 16) and for a time was served by the clergy of Holy Trinity, Birchfield. (fn. 17) In 1926 a parish was assigned out of Holy Trinity, Birchfield, and St. Peter and St. Paul, Aston; the living was declared a vicarage, in the gift of the Vicar of Holy Trinity, Birchfield, for the first turn only and then of the bishop. (fn. 18)

The church was declared redundant by the Church of England in 1981 and sold to the Church of God (International).
