All Souls Anglican Church Conservation Appeal
All Souls Church St Peters in the City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters is a locally heritage listed building built in the Byzantine style. It has a particularly wide nave and narrow aisles and a colonnade of closely spaced arches. The roof is constructed of Marseille terracotta tiles.
All Souls is home to some of the most beautiful and significant stained glass windows in South Australia, designed by Morris & Co. Morris & Co stained glass windows are world famous and reflect the Gothic revival in architecture. Of the 14 identified Morris & Co windows in Adelaide, 5 are to be found in All Souls Church. The church also has a number of other beautiful stained glass windows, some re-located from other churches, others dedicated war memorials.
The church has suffered significant cracking over the years, despite taking preventative measures. A lot of further work is required to minimise movement and stabilise the building. Stabilisation will protect the stained glass windows, some of which are in danger of collapse.
The National Trust All Souls Church Appeal aims to raise funds to continue with the program of repair for the church building and the stained glass windows, in order to preserve this historic site for the future.
