All Saints is an Anglican church in Corn Street, Bristol, England.

The west end of the nave survives from the original 12th-century church, and the east nave and aisles were built in the 15th century. The north-east tower was added in 1716 by William Paul, and completed by George Townesend. The lantern was rebuilt by Luke Henwood in 1807, and the chancel rebuilt in the mid-19th century.

The church is surrounded on three sides by pedestrian passageways and built into surrounding buildings. Over the south nave is a priests' room and over the north a Georgian coffee room. The most notable monument is to Edward Colston designed by James Gibbs and carved by John Michael Rysbrack.[1]

As of 2008 it was used as a Diocesan Education Centre.[2]

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[3]
