All Saints Church is an active Anglican church in the centre of the town of Evesham, Worcestershire. All Saints and its neighbour St Lawrence's Church were built by the Benedictine monks of Evesham Abbey in the 12th century. All Saints is now Evesham's parish church as St Lawrence's was declared redundant in 1978.

The two parish churches shared a churchyard and it is not entirely clear why they were built so close together. Initially St Lawrence's was a richer church than All Saints. However after the Reformation, matters changed and All Saints became the richer. This partly reflected the fact that the two churches drew their congregations from different sides of the town, and the western side, with which St Lawrence's was associated, was becoming poorer. Also, All Saints maintained a high church tradition of worship, which attracted the wealthier residents.
