All Saints is a warm and welcoming church with worship in a Prayer Book Catholic tradition with more informal all-age worship on occasions.
This beautiful medieval parish church was founded in 1147 and has been extended in two stages. The 1283 extension was ordered by Bishop Bek who made the church a Collegiate with a Dean and seven Canons. Stone from the nearby Roman fort of Longovicium was used to build the church, notably five pillars of the north arcade which are entire.
There is much of interest, e.g. 13th century stained glass, medieval misericords and a Roman altar found nearby in 1893.
