The name of All Saints has re-emerged in Small Heath as during the 1990s a re-organisation of churches in Small Heath was undertaken, and St Aidan’s, St Gregory’s, St Andrew’s and St Oswald’s were amalgamated. The new parish decided to retain only St Aidan’s Church building, and in 1998 this was renamed All Saints.
