In the heart of York
Good morning, and welcome to the website of the parish church of All Saints. All Saints is an Anglican church situated in the centre of the medieval city of York in northern England. The present church, which is mainly fourteenth and fifteenth century, stands on a site hallowed for worship for almost 1100 years. It contains one of the most important displays of medieval stained glass in the British Isles, including the famous Pricke of Conscience window.
Worship at All Saints is in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, centred on the Eucharist, the service instituted by Christ himself. Mass is offered three times a week and our main service is Sung or High Mass, celebrated every Sunday at 5.30pm. We use the English Missal liturgy at this service.
Stained Glass Restoration & Conservation
All Saints Church North Street, York, awarded £531,000 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund towards the Restoration and Preservation of its Stained Glass and the restoration work is now underway.
The church contains an exceptional collection of stained glass dating from the second quarter of the fourteenth century and the first half of the fifteenth century, distributed across thirteen windows.
The glass is not only of great quality, but is also of exceptional iconographic interest, with windows depicting rare, and in one instance unique, subjects in stained glass. The windows offer a glimpse into the devotional life of a wealthy and literate late medieval parish.
