All Saints Church, Haggerston, also Church of All Saints is an Anglican church in Livermere Road, near the junction with Haggerston Road, in Hackney, north east London. It is part of a parish with Holy Trinity Church and St Philip Dalston (demolished after bombing in World War II).
History and design
Constructed of Kentish rag with ashlar dressings, it was built between 1855-6. The church was extended by T.E. Knightley, probably in the early 1860s and due to growth in the congregation, with aisles remodelled and galleries added.
It has been extensively repaired, first following a fire and then war damage. Inside, the church is plastered and painted and its Grade II listing notes that the interior is: “curiously old-fashioned for its date and survives remarkably completely”.
The church today
From 1998 to 2014, the vicar was the Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, who also holds the roles of Speaker’s chaplain to the House of Commons, priest vicar at Westminster Abbey and chaplain to the Queen.
