All Saints' Church, Lincoln is a parish church on Monks Road in Lincoln in the Church of England.

The parish is part of the Deanery of Christianity within the Diocese of Lincoln.


The church was erected in the Early Decorated style in 1903 to designs by the architect C. Hodgson Fowler. It contains decoration, rood screen and stained glass dating from the early 20th century by Ninian Comper.

The church is noted as having an altar slab from Bardney Abbey.

Organ and organists

The organ dates from around 1906 and was by the London builder Henry Willis. It has since been renovated and modified. It is widely regarded as one of the finest organs in Lincolnshire. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.

Previous organists have included Albert Hancock, (who served as Organist and Master of the Music for over 40 years), Graham Chapman, and Edward Hewes (now Organ Scholar at Canterbury Cathedral).
