All Saints' was built in the 1870s as a new church for a parish serving an expanding part of the town. Its most famous incumbent was Fr. Charles Bond, the carpenter priest, who died in 1932.
A warm welcome awaits you at All Saints! We meet to worship in the Grade II listed building in Butts Road in the centre of Alton, opposite the fire station. The church was built in 1873 and boasts a fine peal of 8 bells and has many interesting historical features and stained glass windows.
The churchyard is well maintained and has recently acquired a new flower bed planted with medicinal plants which would have been known to the local 18<sup>th</sup> century naturalist Gilbert White.
All Saints is on the Pilgrim’s Way, which leads from Winchester to Canterbury; if you have an official Pilgrim’s Way ‘passport’ you will be able to get it stamped here. The building is usually open during daylight hours; we love to have visitors popping in. Do pay us a visit.
Our Sunday mornings we have Holy Communion services at 8am and 10.30 am. Please join us for midweek communion at 9.30am every Wednesday. This is followed by coffee in our comfortable seating area at the back of the church. Once a month we hold ‘Tea @ 3’ with delicious home made cake followed by a reflective communion. We sing hymns accompanied by the organ and our services are generally traditional. (Subject to change due to COVID 19. We hope to return to these services very soon)

Since 1st January 2010 All Saints' has been part of The Parish of the Resurrection, Alton. There are four Anglican Churches in the new parish. We are in Covenant with Alton Methodist Church as the Greater Alton Project (GAP)
