All Saints’ Church, Hockley, originally known as All Saints’ Church, Nineveh, is a former Church of England parish church in Birmingham.


The church was designed by Thomas Rickman and Henry Hutchinson and was a Commissioners' church built on land given by Sir Thomas Gooch. It was consecrated on 28 September 1833 by the Bishop of Worcester.

A parish was assigned out of St Martin in the Bull Ring in 1834. All Saints’ Schools were built in 1843, with a contribution from the Queen Dowager of £20 and these buildings still exist on All Saints Street in Hockley.

A mission church was established in 1887 which became St Chrysostom’s Church, Hockley.

The church was enlarged in 1881, and demolished in 1966.


The church had a pipe organ by J.C. Banfield and Son which was opened on Sunday 26 March 1843. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register. When All Saints’ closed, the organ was moved to Lyndon Methodist Church
