Your Portal to Parish History, Art, Heritage and Culture

'PARISH MEMORY' SYMPOSIUM (report coming soon)

My-Parish is an online resource for everyone interested in parishes, from the Middle Ages to the present, in the British Isles, continental Europe and beyond. Set up by the Warwick Network for Parish Research founded in 2003, it serves as a platform to exchange ideas, showcase projects, launch initiatives, advertise events, solicit collaborations and find materials on parish history, art, heritage and culture.

On these pages, the Network offers open access to a vast range of primary, secondary and digital RESOURCES in English as well as several other languages alongside records of its annual WARWICK SYMPOSIUM ON PARISH RESEARCH and a calendar of other EVENTS. Most importantly, we feature content provided by members: brief alerts & announcements (under NEWS), longer - often illustrated - pieces on specific themes, issues or sources (POSTS), research tools like databases (PROJECTS), recordings of seminars / webinars (VIDEOS) and full-text essays or theses (TEXTS).

For free membership, without specific obligations, just send your full name, location/institution, email address and homepage url (if any) to After registration (as an individual or group), you will appear on our network list, receive our occasional newsletter and be able to advertise initiatives, make contributions and connect with other members – as explained on the FAQ page. We welcome the involvement of anyone with an active research interest in parishes, from our highly specialized FELLOWS to a MEMBERSHIP drawn from well beyond the academic community, and pride ourselves on the inclusiveness of our symposia and other activities.

'Parish Matters'
REF Impact 2014


''A beating heart of the parish histories community' (John Reeks, 2019)


‘La più ricca risorsa on-line di respiro europeo disponibile per la ricerca sulle istituzioni e le pratiche religiose e sociali connesse alla cura delle anime, che fornisce un notevole aiuto a tutti gli studiosi attivi in questo campo’ (Massimo Della Misericordia, 2020)


The My-Parish team has 'developed a wonderful network and an excellent website - a real service to our wider community of scholars both in this country and abroad.' (Andrew Foster, 2022)
