In April 2012 a new era in the life of All Saints’ Church began, as the Reverend Dr David Benton McConkey was formally installed as Priest-in-Charge of All Saints Northampton with St Peter and St Katharine. We remain exceptionally grateful to our team of Assistant Priest - The Reverend Dr Nicholas Aldritt, The Reverend Geoffrey Neale, The Reverend Canon Frank Pickard and The Reverend Canon Paul Rose, and our Licensed Reader Mr Fred Norton – who worked so hard to keep All Saints going throughout the three-year interregnum. The Churchwardens are Councillor David White and Mrs Jill Davidge.

Further information on Fr. David can be found here.

The Company of All Saints' Ringers ring on Sundays, feast-days and on all civic occasions, and they regularly ring peals or quarter peals for special anniversaries. A new ring of ten bells was installed in 2006. The Tower Captain is Mrs Bridget Paul, who can be contacted on (01604) 832291.

Further information on the bells can be found here.


There are over 100 musicians who regularly lead the services at All Saints. We are lucky enough to maintain the only remaining boys’ choir in the county, and there is also a separate girls’ choir. These top lines are supported by twelve choral scholars and six lay clerks. They are led by the Director of Music, and an Assistant Organist. The choirs sing for the Eucharist and Evensong each Sunday and for Evensong on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at six o'clock. They also carry out a busy programme of concerts and tours, more details of which can be found in the Music Department. There is also a volunteer choir, The All Saints' Singers, who lead the worship at our 12.30pm mid-week Eucharist on Red Letter Days.

Further information on the Music Department can be found here.


There are three specific groups of worshippers at All Saints. There is the Weekday Congregation who attend the daily Eucharist or thrice-weekly Choral Evensong. Then there is the Sunday congregation who attend the 8.00am, 10.30am and 6.30pm services. Finally the Civic Congregation, who attend annual & anniversary services important to the town and county.


The Parochial School was resited in the 1970s, but the links between the parish and the school are maintained by foundation governors, and the Beckett & Sargent foundation.


Conscious of the need for educational grant aiding, the B & S charity, founded in the Parish, gives grants to young people in all fields of education.


The P.C.C is part of the Church of England's synodical government, operating by statute. The Parochial Church Council is elected on an annual basis by those on the Electoral Roll of the Church. The P.C.C consists of Fr. David as Chairman, two ex officio members who are the Church Wardens, the Deanery Synod Representatives and twelve elected members.


The All Saints' Coffee Shop is leased from the Church by Tony Ansell, Caterers of Distinction, who opened the refurbished premises in January 2009. Tony Ansell is also a Councillor for Northampton Borough Council. Further information can be found here.
