The Church

Past and Present

The church of All Saints’ has been home to a living, worshipping, praying Christian community for centuries.

As you move around this ancient, sacred place, you can share their feeling of being very close to God.

The church has a fascinating history. The original nave is about a thousand years old. During the 14th century the nave was extended to its present length, the chancel was rebuilt, and a tower was added – the tower then had to be rebuilt in 1586 following a partial collapse.

There are lots of interesting features to see including the font, screen, altar, stained glass windows and pictures.

The church is normally open on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm (including service times on Sundays and Wednesdays).  To help you enjoy your visit, you can download our free Guide to All Saints’ Church Springfield, and copies of Alan Shadrack's comprehensive 'Historical Notes of All Saints' Church, Springfield, Essex' are available in the church for a small charge.


There are two shallow steps down at the main (south door) entrance, but there is level access to the church by going round the right hand side and into the Church Centre, and then entering through the north door. There are several wheelchairs that can be borrowed by visitors. The Church Centre is fully accessible and has a disabled toilet.

Large print versions of hymn books and most service sheets are available – please ask a steward for them when you arrive. The church is fitted with a hearing induction loop.
