Our Building

All Saints is Grade 1 listed and is mentioned in Simon Jenkins's book 'England's Thousand Best Churches'.
The War Memorial in the extension churchyard was listed in February 2017 as Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: it is an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it made in the conflicts of the C20;
* Architectural interest: it is a well detailed memorial designed by Cecil Greenwood Hare, the pupil and partner of G. F. Bodley, who has ten listed buildings to his name;
* Group value: it has group value with the nearby All Saints Church (Grade I) and Strelley Hall and stables (both listed at Grade II).

The nearest Post Office is on Bracebridge Drive, Bilborough NG8 4PL


Music and Worship

All Saints has one bell, which is tolled by the Churchwarden. Access to the bell floor of the tower is unfortunately not available to the general public.

This year [2019] we have been blessed by the donation from St. John's Church, Bilborough of their redundant organ to replace our ailing one for which repair was not viable. Thanks to all involved in the removal, transport, re-instatement and servicing. We love it!
