All Saints' Church, St Andrews, is in North Castle Street, St Andrews, Fife, Scotland (grid reference NO512168). It is an active Scottish Episcopal Church[1] and is a Category A listed building.[2]

The first church building on the site was a temporary iron church made by Spiers of Glasgow in May 1903, which provided seating for 150 people. The foundation stone for a more permanent building was laid on 11 March 1907.[3] In that year a chancel and belltower designed by the Chester architect John Douglas were built.[4] The iron structure was moved to form the nave of the church. In June 1920 the foundation stone of a new nave was laid.[3] This was designed by Paul Waterhouse[5] and consecrated on 1 November 1923.[3]
