About
One of five medieval parish churches in the centre of Britain's first conservation area, All Saints' Church is living history, still in daily use for the worship of God in Christ and for celebrating the life-events of Stamford people. The building is normally open for visitors for sight-seeing, prayer or just quiet reflection between about 08:00 and 17:15 on weekdays, 09:00 and 17:15 on Saturdays, 07:30 and 19:00 on Sundays, but please be aware that changes are sometimes necessary and that services and other events can preclude casual visiting from time to time - a calendar is available on our website. Please to do not post mail to the address of the church: there is no letterbox!

So pleased that the church was open so we could appreciate the superb architecture, carving, stained glass windows and the gold winged angels in the roof.

Beautiful windows and angels
Aug 2020
A beautiful old church with fantastic windows and wonderful angels on the roof beams.
One way system and screens in place to ensure distancing.
Definitely worth a visit.

Graveyard Fairy Tales a Live Today
Aug 2019
I've read the stories and heard the Celtic folktales of graverobbers, ghosts in search of their graves and the Cóiste Bodhar, or Death Coach. Prominent in the Center of the town's square, her gothic steeple towering in the distance, the vivid reality of these tales sprung to life. Church courtyards, well they are real! Ancient, nameless gravestones, some with crowns etched into the templets of stone, line the stone walls surrounding the church. The evening sun sparked the characters on the stain glass windows. Where centuries collided into a single moment.

So impressive
Sep 2019 • Couples
We love going to see old churches. Although small Stamford has many. This church is so big and magnificent to behold. I would have loved to watch it being built. Masons, carpenters etc. Spending years working on this church. Well worth a visit.

Very Nice Church
Aug 2019
For the size of the town there are a lot of large churches in Stamford. I agree with others, All Saints is probably the nicest. Located very close to the All Saint's berwery, what could be better!

So much history
Jul 2019 • Friends
If you only visit one church in Stanford, and you are spoiled for choice, this has to be it. Beautifully looked after and cared for there is so much to see, particularly the monuments to the Cecil family who built and lived in Burghley House and were advisors to the Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I and into the Stuart period. It would be easy to miss this church as it is not in the main centre of the town. Head over the river on the A43 and it is on the left.

I think you’ve confused us with St Martin’s. We are right in the town centre and have no monuments to the Cecils! St Martin’s great, too, but we are not it.

Interesting mediaeval church
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is one of five churches remaining in use out of the original fourteen in Stamford. It stands on one side of Red Lion Square. A church on this site is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but the current building dates mainly from the 13th and 15th centuries. An exterior feature is the Sundial, about which there is an information board. Inside, the two most notable features are the 15th century font and a curved opening in the wall to the right of the nave, through which the back of the organ can be seen. There are also some interesting brasses on the wall to the left of the nave as you look towards the altar.
