All Saints' Church, Stamford is a parish church in the Church of England, situated in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England. The parish includes St John the Baptist's Church which is now redundant.


A Stamford church is mentioned in the Domesday Book. None of the original church is still in existence. There is a very small amount of 12th-century stonework, but the bulk of the church dates from the 13th century.

Extensive additions were made by the Browne family in the 15th century.[1] John Browne, Merchant of the Staple of Calais, funded the 15th-century construction. His son, William, Mayor of the Calais Staple, funded and built the steeple.[2] Various members of the Browne family are the only people buried inside the church. William Stukeley was vicar from 1730 to 1747.


The organ was built in 1916 by James Jepson Binns.[3]
