All Saints Church, Hoole, is in Hoole Road, Hoole, Chester, Cheshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church in the deanery of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the diocese of Chester, and is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.


The church was built in 1867 to a design by S. W. Dawkes. In 1911 a vestry was added. The following year the south aisle was built; it was designed by John Douglas in collaboration with F. (or J.) Walley, but not completed until after Douglas' death. The furnishing of the church was reordered in the later part of the 20th century by Graham Holland.


The church is built in red sandstone with grey-green slate roofs. Its plan consists of a five-bay nave with north and south aisles, all under separate roofs, a chancel, a southwest tower with a broach spire, a flat roofed vestry at the southeast, and a north porch with a gable. The windows have plate tracery.
