All Saints Church
14-16 Market Pl, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1JP
All Saints Church was built back in 12th Century, situated between the Ancient Market Place and Clarence Street.
Very few churches have a history as rich and as fascinating as All Saints in Kingston. Key events in the church’s history include Egbert, King of Wessex, holding his great council here in 838, and in the 10th century, Athelstan and Ethelred the Unready were two of the seven Saxon kings of England said to be crowned here. Construction of the present church began in 1120 under the orders of Henry I, and almost every century since then some extension or addition has been made, making the architecture of this beautiful church truly captivating.
The church continues to be an integral part of Kingston’s community, hosting various cultural events throughout the year, including Thumbs Up It's Thursday, We Are Fashion Kilo Sale, Kingston Choral Society, and more. The church is open seven days a week, with services on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
