The Church of All Saints is a Church of England parish church in Elland, Calderdale, West Yorkshire. The church is a grade II* listed building.

History

In 1896, the Church of All Saints was built by G. H. Fellowes Prynne. It is made of hammer-dressed stone and has a tiled roof. It has late Gothic reredos dating from the 1920s, although the carved altar is from the 17th century.

On 6 June 1983, the church was designated a grade II* listed building.

Present day

The Church of All Saints is part of the Benefice of "Saint Mary the Virgin, Elland and All Saints, Elland" in the Archdeaconry of Halifax and the Huddersfield Episcopal Area of the Diocese of Leeds.

The parish stands in the Modern Catholic tradition of the Church of England. As All Saints rejects the ordination of women, the church receives alternative episcopal oversight from the Bishop of Wakefield (currently Tony Robinson).
