The Church of All Saints in East Pennard, Somerset, England, dates from the 14th century. It is a grade I listed building.

The tower contains a clock and five bells. They are the second heaviest peal of five bells in the world.

Inside the church is a Norman font and several stained-glass windows, also an altar screen and monuments of the Martines and Napiers.

The 15th-century churchyard cross was restored in 1919 as a memorial to those who died in World War I.

In 2011 fundraising was undertaken to raise the £60,000 needed to repair the roof.

The parish is part of the Fosse Trinity benefice within the deanery of Shepton Mallet.
