All Saints is one of the two churches in the Parish of Putney, the other being St. Mary's Church, Putney. The parish is within the Wandsworth Deanery, the Kingston Episcopal Area and the Diocese of Southwark.
The building was designed by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. The windows are the most extensive glazing scheme by Morris & Co. in any London church. Most of the cartoons (original drawings) for the windows were created for buildings elsewhere (seven were taken from designs drawn in 1874 for a church in Calcutta). All but two windows are the work of Morris & Co., the majority being drawn by Burne-Jones, and six by Morris himself. The windows pre-dating 1896 would have been designed (i.e. colour of glass, painted detail) by William Morris,.
It survived an arson attack in January 1993. Police caught the arsonist at two o'clock one morning moments after he ignited oil in the boiler room. Following this there was a £1m renovation programme that led to a new roof and major alterations.
