All Saints Church

Cheltenham

All Saints' Church was established in 1868 by a group of local people anxious to establish a style of worship not generally found in Cheltenham, using the rich liturgy and colour of the 19th century Oxford Movement.

The building was designed by Cheltenham's foremost church architect John Middleton, who designed numerous other Cheltenham churches, such as St. Mark's Church, Holy Apostles Church and St. Philip's and St. James' Church. The ecclesiastical parish of All Saints was formed in 1869.

The church was built in the Early French Gotich style. The original design with a 200 feet tall spire has remained unfinished, but no other Cheltenham church can boast such a delicate interior as All Saints'. Polished granite arcade, elaborate carving, statuary in canopied niches, ironwork screen and font cover make this church's interior breathtaking.

All Saints' Church is also famous for its organs. Gustav Holst's father Adolph was an organist there and young Holst sang in the choir. The stained glass in the church was designed by Birmingham born Edward Coley Burne-Jones, who is closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite art.
